Mudslides trap California drivers including rapper Soulja Boy, close major highway

A winter storm that brought heavy rain to Southern California wildfire burn areas unleashed flooding and mudslides on Saturday, trapping motorists, including rapper Soulja Boy, on a major highway.

The California Department of Transportation District 7 said on Twitter that the Pacific Coast Highway will remain closed until Monday due to mudslides and flooding between Las Posas Road in Ventura County to Encinal Canyon Road in Malibu.

The deluge loosened hillsides in Malibu where a major fire burned last year and sent mud and debris onto the busy roadway, trapping drivers.

Among those caught in the debris was 28-year-old rapper Soulja Boy, whose real name is DeAndre Cortez Way, and is known for his 2007 hit “Crank That.”
