After posting bail Tuesday afternoon, Soulja Boy is a free man, but his problems are not far behind him.


According to TMZ, the police that arrested Soulja Boy and his crew for riding dirty are trying to pin most of the blame on the rapper. A source close to the investigation told the celebrity news site that a briefcase containing the marijuana and gun belonged to the 21 year-old hip hop star.


Soulja Boy and four other men were pulled over by police early Tuesday morning in Temple, Georgia because the Escalade SUV they were riding in had a broken light. Upon approaching the vehicle officers detected a “strong odor” of marijuana and searched the vehicle, where they found weed, a gun, and about $70,000 in cash.   


All five men were arrested and charged with drug possession and a gun charge.
