Soulja Boy is a free man.
The rapper was released from jail just before 2 a.m. PST on Sunday morning (July 14) as a result of his jail time expiring. The L.A. Sheriff’s Dept. tells TMZ that he was released 146 days early due to a combination of good behavior, time served, and overcrowding.
Soulja had originally been sentenced to 240 days in jail and 265 days of community service for violating his probation in April. The judge said he failed to do his court-ordered community service and even conspired to falsify evidence he had completed it. In February, cops raided Soulja’s home and found ammunition while investigating a claim from an ex-girlfriend, who said that Soulja had kidnapped her.
While he was behind bars, his kidnapping case was rejected by prosecutors. The Ventura County District Attorney declined to file charges against the rapper due to insufficient evidence. The alleged victim accused him of holding her captive for six hours. However, the case was dropped after a police investigation didn’t prove it.
