Soulja Boy On TI
Soulja Boy exclusively tells MTV News how he spoke to T.I minutes before he was arrested....
The 17-year-old found himself caught up in an undercover FBI sting operation, culminating in the arrest of his friend TI: I was way in the back of my tour bus getting my hair cut when TI came to the door and said is Soulja Boy in there? I wanna holla at him SB told MTV News.
He continued: I said yo! come holla at me but when he was at the door his management grabbed him and were like come on we gotta go, and took him. So I was like ok Ill catch up with him later on.
"Then when I went in for the awards I got a page saying TI just got locked up, and I was like no! I just seen him! Thats messed up.
TI had been arrested for gun possession and has since been denied bail, and will appear in court on Friday to decide whether there was probable cause for his arrest and whether he will qualify for bond before trial.
Soulja Boy went on to have a great night, winning Best Hip Hop Dance for Crank That and closed the show with a performance of his US chart-topping signature tune.
Crank That is due for release in the UK in mid December
