Soulja Boy is back and he's better!

The 29-year-old-rapper has put on 50 pounds of healthy weight as a result of getting his life together and most importantly staying clean, TMZ reports.

Soulja's manager, Miami Mike, told the outlet the "New Drip" rapper put on the weight after his last arrest, which led to him spending about three months in Los Angeles County Jail earlier this year. Mike said Soulja was "only 130 lbs." when he started his sentence, but since then he's "quit drinking and doing drugs of any kind," including lean, he's packed on the pounds. Plus, Soulja started "working out more."

On top of the health benefits, Young Draco's manager said his lifestyle changes have helped the rapper's bank account since he's not longer dropping stacks on lean everyday. (He would on average spend $500 to $800 per day.)

As fans know, the rapper was released from jail back in July after serving a little more than three months behind bars. Despite being sentenced to 240 days for a probation violation, Soulja was released 146 days early due to a combination of good behavior, time served and overcrowding.

Soulja was smacked with the 8-month sentence along with 265 days of community service in April for violating his probation. Soulja was taken into custody while appearing at a probation hearing. The judge reportedly told Soulja that he'd failed to do his court-ordered community service and even conspired to falsify evidence that he had completed it. He additionally cited a February raid of the rapper's house, where police found ammunition, as a reason for his arrest.
