Soulja Boy’s home was burglarized just a few days after he was arrested for a probation violation.

The suspects allegedly used the “Crank That” rapper’s stolen iPhone to brag about the burglary on Soulja Boy’s Instagram account via Instagram Live, according to TMZ. (WARNING: NSFW language ahead.)

Law enforcement said that a caretaker for the rapper and entrepreneur’s Agoura Hills, California home called police on Monday night (Apr. 15) to report the crime. The alleged thieves took a myriad of jewelry, cash, and other personal items. The stolen jewelry is worth over $500,000, and $100,000 in cash was taken.

The suspects who went on Soulja Boy’s Instagram Live are also reportedly reaching out to the rapper’s celebrity friends stating that they’re his new artists and that Soulja Boy wants their music video posted on the celebrity’s Instagram accounts.
