Soulja Boy Did Not Buy Private Jet, Owes $30K in Taxes

Last week Soulja Boy had the Internet going hammer when it was reported that he bought himself a $55 million private jet for his 21st birthday last week. However it was all a lie, according to TMZ, who happened to break the news in the first place.

The “Crank That” rapper’s spokesperson Greg Miller said that “elaborate rumors” are “false.”

To make matters worse, when given a chance by a Miami DJ to clear up the story on Friday (July 29), Soulja said he was “G5 status,” leading fans to believe he in fact made the astronomical purchase. He also told TMZ, “Hell yea… I bought it”

In related Soulja news, according to, SB is facing problems with Uncle Sam. The gossip site is reporting that the 21-year-old owes the state of California about $26,805 in back taxes,  as well as about $3,500 to Mississippi. His Georgia home was also foreclosed on last year.

In more positive news, Soulja dropped his latest EP earlier today, appropriately titled 21, which fans can download for free here. –Mike Hennix

    I can see how people would get the jet and taxes mixed up by $55,026,000. No really I can, because there is a lot of dumb people out there in this world.

  • Bara odrama

    He worth $20milion hw tha fck ws he 2 buy a $55milion jet?!! Idiots

  • HU

    Is really worth even 20 million? That sounds extremely high. Anyone who believed this for even a second is a complete idiot and really needs to learn what money and wealth are. Soulja Boy is not wealthy and never will be. There are maybe 2 or 3 rappers in the world who could afford a private jet and it wouldn’t be wise if they actually bought one. Anyone who flashes money doesn’t have real money. I can assure you that no human with rims, chains, tattoos and other stupid pointless shit has any actual money.

    The only rappers who could afford that are probably Jay z , P Diddy, Master P, and Fifty.
