Be careful what you post on social media. For Soulja Boy, flexing on Instagram inadvertently led to an attempted robbery and shooting on his birthday.

TMZ reports that the rapper was celebrating his birthday at a recording studio in Hollywood over the weekend. On their way inside the studio, Soulja and his crew noticed a black SUV parked out front with four men in it, but didn't think anything of it. They went about their business as usual, with Soulja even posting a few photos on Instagram showing off his cash and good vibes.

When they were ready to leave later, Soulja's crew checked the security cameras and noticed that the SUV was still outside. When Killa J - one of Soulja's friends and artists under his label - went to investigate, the four men demanded Soulja's Gucci bag, which he allegedly uses to store stacks of money, and asked for the rapper by name.

According to TMZ, when Killa J didn't cooperate, the bullets started flying and he was shot in the arm. He's expected to make a full recovery, and though the incident is under investigation, authorities do not currently have any suspects.
