*Soulja Boy was arrested in Los Angeles early this morning after police say he was carrying a loaded gun, reports TMZ.

According to law enforcement sources, the 23-year-old rapper was a passenger in a vehicle that was pulled over in the San Fernando Valley for running a stop sign early Wednesday morning.

During the stop, cops say they noticed that Soulja was in possession of a loaded gun — and arrested him on the spot. He was hauled to a nearby jail to be booked.

Soulja has a history of run-ins with the law — he was busted for weed and weapons back in 2011.
