Soulja Boy Buys $55 Million Jet as Birthday Present to Himself
Soulja Boy celebrated his 21st birthday Thursday (July 28) and he wasn't set on throwing back shots with his boys but rather shelling out way more than an average person's salary on a private jet.
According to TMZ, the 'Mean Mug' performer dropped $55 million on a G5 jet. The news came care of his management, who also revealed that the pricey ride originally cost $35 million but totaled the whopping amount when the southern rhymer chose to incorporate added extravagances.
The Georgia native dropped dime on 12 custom Italian leather seats, flat screen TVs, four liquor bars, a special travertine tiled floor and Brazilian hardwood cabinets. Besides those additions, the rapper is reportedly renovating the existing bathroom and painting the entire jet with his logo.
Though he hasn't dropped a new album and his last LP, 'The DeAndre Way' flopped at 13,360 copies sold in its first week, the effort's lead single, 'Pretty Boy Swag,' has totaled well over 1,000,000 units, which may be a reason he can afford such luxuries as a multi-million dollar jet.
Last week, Soulja Boy released his 'Bernaul Arnault' mixtape, featuring songs 'Came Out the Water' and 'Fire Blunts.'
