Soulja Boy Blows $55 Million on Private Jet

Soulja Boy

Money ain’t a thing for Soulja Boy. The “Crank That” rapper celebrated his 21st birthday by treating himself to a $55 million gift.

According to TMZ, Soulja dropped the staggering amount on a private jet. A member of his management team tells the website that the G5 was purchased as a birthday present to himself.

The ride cost a reported $35 million, but he is spending an additional $20 million to upgrade it with 12 custom Italian leather seats, flat screen TVs, four liquor bars, a travertine-tiled floor, and Brazilian hardwood cabinets.

If that’s not enough, he is replacing the in-flight lavatory with a luxurious bathroom and giving it a custom paint job to include his logo.

He also reportedly spent $300,000 on a blowout birthday bash at a Miami nightclub with guests including Dwight Howard, Bow Wow, and Sean Kingston.

    Soulja Boy could have AND SHOULD HAVE given some of that money to charity. People are homeless, battered women need homes. Hell, there’s still no cure for HIV/AIDS!!

    So many other things could have been accomplished with $55 million.

    Give me a break with these charity speeches you’re making. It is like power (though often linked), the more you have, the more you want, and the less you are disposed to share it. When you obtain what they obtained (if you ever do), things change. Whether you want it or not. With that amount of money, with his interests to protect, you might have done the very same thing.

    LOL @ the 10 m$ to charity. Come back to earth, por favor.

    Having a jet is also in order to continue to build that character he’s been building for years now. And as unlikely as it looks, acts like this one will be beneficial for the future, except if he blew all of his money for this jet, but I doubt it, since he’s a little bit more intelligent than he looks.

    Acquisition of ultra-expensive possessions = increase of a golden-boy/American Dream illusion/image = increase of admiration/hatred = more people, hate or love, are getting interested about SB = Bigger buzz = Increase of fame/popularity = Television/Paper/Radio/Internet/etc./exposure = More money thanks to albums, showcases, concerts, etc. = Acquisition of ultra-expensive possessions = …

    Don’t overrate the human being. In the “civilized” world, it is either the sheep or the shepherd.

    However I wonder how did the guy make so much money, since we all know he isn’t as successfully prolific as Hip-hop tenors.

    I honestly didn’t think he had that much money. 50 must really be putting him on. But, to me that was a dumb purchase. If I had that much money I would be making it stretch even if money wasn’t an object. Or a good 80% of that would be in a savings account or something, then the rest I would spend freely.

    EXACTLYYYYYYYYY soulja Boy can do whatever he wants with his money he worked hard 4 it ….
