LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police say rapper Soulja Boy has been arrested on a suspected probation violation after they found a firearm in his Hollywood Hills home.

Officer Sal Ramirez says the rapper, whose real name is DeAndre Cortez Way, was arrested around 7 a.m. Thursday after a search of the home. Ramirez did not know what kind of firearm was found.

Way was sentenced to two years of probation on Dec. 18, 2014, after being convicted of carrying a loaded firearm in a public place.

Attempts to reach a representative for the rapper were unsuccessful.

“Soulja Boy” is best known for his 2007 hit “Crank That (Soulja Boy)” and for his recent appearances on VH1’s “Love and Hip Hop.”

The arrest was first reported by celebrity website TMZ.

    You see, when you come from the country; and you see the a much more glamorous side of something that’s not real; a person will become something thier not… like a gangsta. Too many Facebook post with guns and threats prove to be stupid. I rather be an Intelligent Hoodlum with my thoughts and intelligent words as guns and my thoughts as meaningful threats. Be a light in dark places my friends.
