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.

Talk about throwing your money away. Soulja Boy, meet MC Hammer..

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.

Just to have the plane parked will cost him at least a mil a year. He will file for bankruptcy soon enough. Hammer never bought a jet.

It's ghetto trash like this who make stupid money from dumb kids who buy their music just to blow it on stupidity when their are obviously ALOT of people suffering in this economic climate. How selfish and self-serving do you have to be to have no cares about the people who are suffering in this country?? Even if the jet is only half that, dude how many people's mortgages could be paid for a month or two. Wouldn't that get you more fans, and hence more money, by not being such a douche and actually helping people? I swear the art of compassion for your fellow man is a dying art. It's ghetto trash like this and all the other kids from this and the previous generation who are all about me me me me and could care less for the trouble of others.
