Soulja Boy Celebrates 20th Birthday, Reveals Strange Gift
Tons of Soulja Boy Tell 'Em's fans and more than a few of his musical counterparts all came out to celebrate the youngster's birthday in Hollywood, Calif., on Wednesday (July 28). The Atlanta native turned the big 2-0, and came another year closer to the legal drinking age.
Before being engrossed in the night's festivities at The Highlands nightclub, the rapper, dressed in all white, expressed his sentiments. "I just want everybody to have a good time tonight," he told TheBoomBox. Even though most guests failed to bring gifts, Soulja Boy revealed that he bought himself a strange birthday present. "A bulletproof vest," he said, refusing to provide an explanation behind the odd purchase.
The birthday boy also took the stage to perform some of his hits, including 'Pretty Boy Swag,' 'Turn My Swag On,' and his debut single, 'Crank That (Soulja Boy).' Among the night's attendees included Rich Boy, the New Boyz, and Sean "Diddy" Combs' stepson, Quincy.
Aside from partying, Soulja Boy is prepping the release of his third album, 'Dre,' and working on a book and movie. "The title of my book is 'Teenage Millionaire' because I made my first million dollars when I was 17 years old," he explained. "I just go into depth about that so everybody wanna take a read on that, it's gonna drop the same day that my album and movie drop."
All three of his projects are set for release on October 15.
