The rapper was taken into custody earlier this month after the judge said he failed to do his court-ordered community service and even conspired to falsify evidence he had completed it.

Not helping matters … Soulja’s crib in Agoura Hills was raided in February and cops found ammunition during the search. Cops had initially gone there to investigate a claim by one of his ex-girlfriends that Soulja tied her up and held her captive in his garage.

The ammunition turned out to be the start of Soulja’s real troubles. Having possession of ammo is a huge no-no ’cause Soulja’s on probation for a weapons case that dates back to 2014.

Soulja Boy has been sitting in jail since April 11. During his recent court hearing, his attorney said the last 20 days triggered an “awakening” in the rapper, but that didn’t matter to the judge who handed down jail time.

Following his release from police custody hours after being arrested on March 15, the 28-year-old entertainer took to Instagram Live to a rant about his brief moment in jail and having the “biggest comeback” of 2018. “I’m not goin’ out like 6ix9ine, you got me f**ed up, bruh,” he added.
