Soulja Boy Released From Prison After Three Months Behind Bars

Updated: Aug 3, 2019

Soulja Boy has been released from prison after serving three months of an eight-month jail sentence.

The 'Crank That' star, whose real name is DeAndre Cortez Way, was incarcerated earlier this year for a probation violation. It was in relation to a felony surrounding his arrest for a previous probation violation in December 2016, which stemmed from his December 2014 conviction of carrying a loaded firearm in public.

In February police found ammunition in the 28-year-old’s home. These items were banned as part of his probation relating to his past offence. Way was found guilty of possessing the ammunition and in April was sentenced to eight months in prison.

But, according to TMZ, the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department has confirmed that Way left prison in the early hours of Sunday morning (July 14) due to a combination of good behaviour, time served and overcrowding. Lucky Boy!
