In the Oct/Nov edition ofVIBE, Soulja Boy reveals to Bonsu Thompson that he and his friends were involved in a shoot out at his home last year. During a recording session, three thieves broke into his Georgia mansion. Alarmed by the intrusion, one of SB’s pals handed him a pistol. At that point, he says he targeted one of the AK-47 toting bandits.
“I’m thinking if I shoot this nigga, I can get that gun and shoot all these niggas at the same time,” says Soulja. “So I jumped out, shot at the dude four times and missed. He ducked down and ran.”
Soulja goes on to say that he fired several more rounds at the second pistol packer.
“He started yelling, so I shot him like two more times,” he recalls. “Then he turned around and started running. So I popped his ass like two more times in the back, and he hit the floor.”
Eventually, all three robbers fled the crib. Looking back on the situation, Soulja says Interscope Records didn’t want him discussing the shooting because of his fan base. But now that he’s an adult, he no longer wants to hold back.
“I really didn’t want nobody to know that I shot somebody,” he says appearing relieved to finally get out his account. “My label [didn’t] want that out there [because] when the robbery went down I had fans like 9, 10 years old. But being that I’m 20, I don’t give a fuck no more. Ain’t nobody take shit [from me that night].”
