Soulja Boy Buys $55 Million Private Jet for Himself

Soulja Boy sure knows the meaning of celebrating big.

TMZ reports the 21-year-old rapper dropped $55 million on a new private jet as a birthday present to himself this week. The jet cost $35 mil, but the b-day boy is investing another $20 million into it to pimp his new ride out. Included in the renovations are 12 custom Italian leather seats, flat screen TVs, four liquor bars, a special travertine tiled floor and Brazilian hardwood cabinets as well as a gut-job to the in-flight lavatory and a custom paint job to include his logo throughout.

As if that weren’t enough for someone barely legal, the entertainment website also reports S.B. is spending $300,000 to throw himself a lavish birthday party at a Miami nightclub tonight (July 29). Basketball player Dwight Howard, Bow Wow and Sean Kingston are among the guests expected to attend.—Mariel Concepcion

    the real question is…

    if this is true, will he have to bread to upkeep the plane? Insurance (for the plane and passengers just in case), fuel, staff costs (pilots are not cheap labor), luxury taxes, hangar rental costs, FAA protocol (mechanics will have to be on deck)…he’s already being severely upcharged for the modifying…

    bad purchase, horrible news…regardless if “it’s his money”…

      XXL should confirm this type of stuff b/4 they print it. While this guy is very successful and I wish him continued success…if he spent this much on a plane he is a idiot. Remember MC Hammer buying that $33 million home and back then he was one of the top selling artists in the world and the price points where higher and the music industry still had control of distribution. Do I belive he rents private plans on the regular…but buying a plane of this amount and size is another level. To be able to afford the upkeep of a plane/yacht…many people do not realize. The guy above explained it very well. It costs $50k for fuel to fly a plane of any size from NYC to LA …one way! I think it would have been much more inspiring if it was reported that Soulja Boy invests in stocks or got in the venture capital business or anything else…This guy aint Puffy or JayZ…they can afford such a purchase…he cannot.

  • Spook

    Ignorant

  • Killa bee

    This is bogus…how could he have made so much money off one single.

  • Twin city

    bull shit check forbes this nigga stay lying

  • MINDFUL

    His ass is barley worth 20 mil. He aint got that type of cash and he just had his house foreclosed and owe the fuckin irs 30,000 GTFOH!

  • kc

    i done read all these comments and they all sound like bitch made hater comments let the nigga do his thing dont hate cause u aint on his level

  • Will Morebucks

    Doubt it… And if he did, he won’t have it long. Diddy shelved his jet b/c all the costs associated wit it, I doubt Soulja seeing close to his bread.

  • Reezy

    Lmfao haha, Soulja has 55m,thats fucking bullshit and the person responsible fo this story should know better AND GET OFF THE PIPE!

  • Ryan

    i doubt he has that much money and if he does hes stupid for spending that much money. if you want to fly in a private plane why wouldnt you just rent one for the day? even if he planned to rent it out he would have to have it booked all year around and who would want to rent a private plane that has soulja boy shit all over it. he just handed his money back over to the man. IDIOT!
