Soulja Boy Strikes Deal For Weapons Case & Promises Not To Touch Any More Guns

According to TMZ, the “Crank That” rapper pleaded no contest to charges of felony gun possession after initially pleading not guilty back in January. And that includes toy guns. Part of the deal is he cannot make any threats or touch a gun, real or otherwise. He was sentenced to five years probation and 240 days of community labor. As he accepts the deal for the case, perhaps he is a step closer to accepting the fact he’s   not   fighting Chris Brown anymore. Los Angeles, CA – Soulja Boy copped a deal in his weapons case where he promises not to touch any guns. He made headlines late last year for dissing Quavo and part of his rollout was an Instagram video where he taunted the camera with what appeared to be very real guns. He will be allowed to travel outside of the country for work purposes as long as he clears it with his probation officer. Soulja was arrested in December after police reportedly found a gun   in his Los Angeles home.
