Fordham University Drops Soulja Boy From Spring Concert Lineup Following Arrest
Soulja Boy’s latest arrest cost him an upcoming gig at Fordham University. The rapper has been booted off the 2019 Spring Weekend concert lineup, which is scheduled for April 27.
“The Campus Activities Board has watched, along with our fellow Fordham students, the headlines that have been in the news as a result of Soulja Boy’s comeback,” the group said in a statement to The Blast. “After careful consideration, the Campus Activities Board has decided to remove Soulja Boy from the Spring Weekend concert lineup.”
In January, Fordham confirmed in that the “Crank That” rapper would be headlining the concert event as part of his 2019 tour.
The 28-year-old recording artist was arrested for probation violation last Friday (March 15), after checking in with his probation officer. He was accused of possessing firearms and ammo, but was released from custody hours later.
Following his release, SB headed to a Los Angeles Clippers game to perform at the halftime show.
