Soulja Boy

DROPS $55 MILLION

ON PRIVATE JET

7/29/2011 5:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Soulja Boy
Soulja Boy doesn't know the meaning of the word recession -- because TMZ has learned, the 21-year-old rapper is dropping $55 MILLION on a new private jet.

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.

And if that's not enough for someone's 21st -- we're told Soulja's also spending $300,000 to throw himself a blowout birthday party at a Miami nightclub tonight ... and Dwight Howard, Bow Wow, and Sean Kingston are all expected to attend.

Kids these days.

He has every right to throw his money away but when he goes broke please don't bore us with tear jerking stories.

Soulja Boy probably put 5% down, with no intention on making any more payments. The plane will be repossesed within 6 months.

It's his money he can do as he pleases.If he looses it he has no one to blame but his self.

These guys never learn. He'll be bankrupt soon enough. I wonder if he has any idea of how quickly he is burning through his money? Now cue the brain dead supports that will say "it's his money he can do whatever he wants with it." Like that's even the point.

He is going to go from yelling "da plane! da plane" to "da bus...da bus" if he is not careful.

What an idiot - he probably has no concept that it will cost him 300k every time he flies in it, between fuel, airport landing charges, and staff fees.
This is why rappers always go broke, they are ignorant.

if he was paying cash id be impressed
but not only is he already a douche for buying it, i bet he is borrowing the money as well.
if he is really a douche, he will borrow it from his label at 10%p.a

Imagine if he would give this money to his family in Africa instead of all those commercials asking us to give money to kids with no food and flies on their faces.

I'm happy for Soulja. I hope he sinks every last penny into that thing. It will be the biggest joke a few years from now when he can no longer afford to fly it. What's he going to name it, Superfly?
