AceShowbiz - Rapper Soulja Boy has been axed from the performance line-up at an upcoming New York college concert in light of his recent arrest for a probation violation.
The "Crank That (Soulja Boy)" hitmaker, real name DeAndre Cortez Way, was taken into custody on 15 March after a previous police search of his Los Angeles property allegedly found him in possession of ammunition, breaking the terms of his conditional release, dating back to a 2011 conviction for weapons violations.
He was released from custody after a few hours, but his latest run-in with the law has since cost him his set at Fordham University's Spring Weekend concert on 27 April.
"After careful consideration, the Campus Activities Board has decided to remove Soulja Boy from the Spring Weekend concert lineup," officials announced in a statement obtained by The Blast.
A representative for the star has yet to comment on the news.
Soulja Boy is scheduled to appear at a formal probation violation hearing to answer to the allegations later this month.
