This right here is…possibly the most ridiculous story of the day.
According to TMZ, Soulja Boy decided to splurge on himself a little for his 21st birthday.
A member of Soulja’s management team tells us … the kid bought himself a G5 jet as a birthday present to himself this week. The jet cost $35 mil … but that’s just the beginning.
We’re told the birthday boy is dropping an additional $20 million to pimp out his ride with all sorts of cool stuff … like 12 custom Italian leather seats, flat screen TVs, 4 liquor bars, a special travertine tiled floor, and Brazilian hardwood cabinets.
We’re told S.B. is also gutting the in-flight lavatory — and replacing it with a giant, LUXURIOUS bathroom. Oh, he’s also giving the jet a custom paint job … to include his logo.
Beyond the obvious absurd spending, it’s hard to tell where exactly Soulja is getting the funds to support his splurge. Last we heard, the pretty boy was blaming Interscope Records for his poor album sales. In an interview with HipHopDX, Soulja said:
“Honestly, I shut down for a week [after my album dropped],” He told Complex. “I wasn’t talking to nobody, I wasn’t talking to management, and I wasn’t talking to the label. I wasn’t picking up nobody’s calls. I went like that for a week. I was in a state of confusion. I needed answers…the label only shipped like 18,000 copies [of the album]. So I wasn’t able to do gold first week or even 100k, none of that. They only put like 8,000 units in Best Buy. It was crazy.”
