Rapper Arab 2059 taken into custody to face a felony charge.
Stacks On Deck Money Gang affiliate Arab 2059 was arrested in connection with the January hit-and-run incident involving Soulja Boy's car (the one that inspired his song "Red Bentley" featuring Curren$y).
According to TMZ, the network of secret cameras that the LAPD uses to help solve crimes captured multiple photos of Soulja Boy's Bentley showing damage after a collision with a motorcyclist at an intersection in Hollywood January 9. Though there were no photos of the actual accident, and although Soulja Boy reportedly fixed the damage quickly, the car was eventually identified and the driver at the time of the accident was identified as Arab, born Abrahim Mustafa.
The car was impounded last week.
Mustafa is facing a felony hit-and-run charge, as the motorcyclist was injured. According to California laws, the charge comes with a possible fine (anywhere from $1,000–$10,000) and/or jail time (1–3 years).
Police told TMZ that they are interested in speaking to Soulja about the incident.
Meanwhile, Soulja Boy's been releasing new music. Not long after his King Soulja mixtape dropped, he offered a free 5-song EP, Cuban Link, co-hosted by SODMG and Birdman's Rich Gang, further fueling rumors that he may be signing to Cash Money Records. He's also been recording with Hustle Gang and Very GOOD Beats signee Travis Scott, this according to Soulja's Vine account.
