He just bought himself a shiny red $189,000 Bentley Continental GT back in April and now there are reports that SB has squandered millions on a private jet! *sigh*
So I was alerted to Soulja Boy’s major purchase when he tweeted this article written by TMZ:
…the 21-year-old rapper is dropping $55 MILLION on a new private jet.
A member of Soulja’s management team tells us … the kid bought himself a G5 jet as a birthday present to himself this week.
The jet cost $35 mil … but that’s just the beginning. We’re told the birthday boy is dropping an additional $20 million to pimp out his ride with all sorts of cool stuff … like 12 custom Italian leather seats, flat screen TVs, 4 liquor bars, a special travertine tiled floor, and Brazilian hardwood cabinets.
When you check Forbes Wealthiest Hip-Hoppers list, you’ll find Diddy, Jay-Z, Birdman, Dr. Dre and 50 Cent… no Soulja Boy.
[Sidebar: My sources say that SouljaBoy’s net worth was only somewhere around $25 million back in February 2011, but I can’t find anything to substantiate that claim.]
Whatever the case, I seriously doubt that he dropped that kinda cash on jet. Maybe he leased it or something.
I need to see a receipt!!!
“IF” this is true… was this really a smart move for Soulja Boy?
