Soulja Boy Buys Himself $55 Million Birthday Gift

Wes Ferguson / July 29, 2011

Looks like Soulja Boy can host the ultimate birthday party — mile high in his own private jet. 

According to TMZ, the “Crank That (Soulja Boy)” and “Turn My Swag On” hit maker bought himself an extravagant birthday gift in the form of a Gulfstream G5 jet. He reportedly dropped $35 million on the jet itself, and an additional $20 million on upgrades. 

The 21-year-old (as of July 28) added some pretty sweet stuff to his sky ride.

The custom additions reportedly include four bars, Italian leather seats, Brazilian hardwood cabinets, several flat screen TVs, tiled flooring and newly-redecorated bathrooms.

Soulja has been criticized as a commercial act by some rappers, but he contends his style is all about upbeat party songs rather than negative or violent themes found in most hip-hop. With his recent purchase, it looks like he plans to keep that theme going!
