Soulja Boy Exposes the Family Jewels

10/14/2009 4:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

In what may be considered one of the dumbest displays of wealth of all time, Soulja Boy just showed the entire planet that he keeps tens of thousands of dollars in an unprotected shoe box in his apartment.

Oh yeah -- did we mention he was just robbed back in December?

Soulja Boy: Click to watch
SB just posted the arrogant rant on his Twitter page, in response to the story we ran yesterday -- that the rapper's landlord accused him of owing nearly $10,000 in unpaid bills.

So, feeling the need to prove his worth, Soulja whipped out a cache of cheesy-but-expensive jewelry and wads upon wads of $100 bills while one of his friends gave the following play-by-play: "wow .... wow ... wow ... wow."

Hopefully, SB takes a few of those unprotected bills and invests in a bodyguard.

1) This kid is probably sitting on his computer reading all these comments because he has nothing better to do; isn't like he is an actual artist. 2) He probably thinks everyone is "just hatin on him cause they mad he fly." (Translation: He's too stupid to realize he just came across like a major effin douchebag). and 3) I bet all the money he's flashin that his ass will end up in jail again within a year for something else dumb. Doesn't know any better.

64. "The only people more ignorant than this dumb ass are the ones buying the crap he calls music."

I totally agree with that.

46. Stuff like this makes me so angry there are SO many racist comments I would love to make. This guy is the ultimate N word. Can't understand a word he's saying and the bling is so god awful ugly. I hope he loses it all and ends up on the street very soon. Our culture is truly going to hell with people like this considered as celebrities. TMZ should be ashamed for even promoting this guy's idiotic lifestyle. I hope Jesse Jackson is proud.

Don't worry about the rappers. We all know the more ignorant ones (the Soulja Boys and Rick Ross's of the world) will be broke way before the more financially savvy ones (The Jay-Zs, and Will Smiths (yes! He really did start out as a "lowly" rapper).) But there are plenty of college-educated and gainfully employed brothers out there (including me) working and supporting their families while you're not. There, now I just really gave you a reason to shout some racist crap. Knock yourself out skippy. hehehehe

Souja who?    

Wow. If Kanye West had interrupted this video we'd have the perfect trifecta of douchebaggery. (For those wondering what the 3rd part of the trifecta is, just pick something from the video. My money is on the hideous "world is mine" chain!)

It is so sad to see so many people who believe unless you are "blessed" by whites, it is unacceptable. To condemn his dress, way of making money, etc. is totally ridiculous. You are automatically looking at any and everything negtively. Obviously he doesn't need the white vindication, he is his own person; as he has a right to be. For once, stop with all the stereotypically crap and allow an individual to be himself whether you agree or not. The problem I have is TMZ being so quick to depict black people as negatively as possible and continuously make excuses for whites when they screw up.

Obviously he has never heard of the IRS.
