Soulja Boy Inks Mysterious $400 Million Deal: ‘God Is Great’
Soulja Boy is making big moves in the rap game although we are not sure what it is.
The Pretty Boy Swag" rapper announced via his Twitter account, that he closed a $400 million deal.
"$400 million deal confirmed," he tweeted on Saturday (April 30). "I still they think they low balled me though. I was thinking 2 or 3 billion."
The "Crank That" maestro doesn't specify any details about the deal other than the fact that he's “grateful."
You may remember Soulja’s major commercial success after releasing "Crank That (Soulja Boy)" in 2007. He was 17 and generating over $7 million for that year wich landed him on the Forbes list. In addition to his royalties, he’s made millions from "Crank That" ringtone sales and is still banking from his other Billboard hits.
On Beyonce's latest album Lemonade, she samples Soulja’s “Turn My Swag On” in the Diplo-produced track "Hold Up." Maybe the deal is related to Lemonade?
On Sunday (May 1), Soulja Boy posted on his Instagram account, "From being worth 25 million at 25 to being offered 400 million and closing out the deal?" Just think about where I came from no man seriously!"
The Atlanta spitter’s forthcoming album Blessed will be his fourth studio album and is set to release sometime this year.
Congrats to Soulja Boy on his lucrative deal.
