Soulja Boy has shared a harrowing video in which he threatens to kill a person who pretended to be his ex-girlfriend Nia Riley’s new boyfriend.
The clip, which was released on Thursday, shows the 26-year-old pointing a gun at the camera as he makes clear threats.
‘Hey dude, f*** you and f*** Nia Riley. Stop playing with me ‘fore some shooters be outside your house,’ he says.

Soulja Boy can then be heard saying ‘kill you’, before once again warning: ‘Stop playing with me.’
Nia told that he was threatening an Internet troll who was trying to wind him up, and that she does not have a boyfriend and will not be reporting the video to the police.
The rapper and star of Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood is currently on probation for carrying a loaded firearm in a vehicle in 2014.
Soulja Boy was given 24 months of probation in December 2014 after striking a plea deal, which meant his weapons possession charge was dropped.

He was also sentenced to 170 hours of community service and the gun was destroyed.
Soulja Boy didn’t appear to have any regrets about sharing the disturbing clip, as the next day he tweeted: ‘If you’re not happy do something about it … Hoes can’t compete with queens … I’m not letting anyone get in the way of me doing me.’
After the musician, real name DeAndre Cortez Way, shared the threatening video, rapper Skrill Dilly denied rumours that he is dating Nia.
He tweeted: ‘Who is @NiaRiley. Never met her b4 but she’s gorgeous. I haven’t spoken to any media.’
Staying out of it: Nia has said she won’t report the video to the police because the rapper was responding to an Internet troll, and added that she does not have a boyfriend

However the rapper deleted the tweet after Nia replied: ‘Now you playing yourself. you know who I am, you BEEN following me! Don’t be lame!’
It seems Soulja Boy and Nia called it quits last week after rowing about a meme she shared to Instagram, which suggested she was ‘halfway into another relationship’.
The former couple’s turbulent romance has been documented on Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood, which premiered its third season last week.
Soulja Boy is seen as struggling to stay faithful to Nia and in the second season of the show he cheated on her with her Best Paypal Accounts friend Nas.
