Soulja Boy is making headlines today, but it's far from welcoming news.

According to TMZ, the 23-year-old entertainer was arrested for carrying a loaded gun in Los Angeles earlier this morning. What was Soulja Boy doing with a loaded gun is anybody's guess, but police found the weapon on him when a vehicle he was a passenger in was stopped for running through a stop sign. The traffic violation turned into an arrest when police found the gun.

He was taken to a nearby jail and booked.

The rapper had a prior weapons-related arrest in 2011, when he got caught with weed, guns and a large sum of cash in another instance where he was a passenger during a traffic violation.

On the music front, Soulja Boy did get some positive shine recently after Drake remixed 'We Made It' for an anthem to bring in the new year.
