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.

What a fake story. He does not have $55 million.

I am in the music industry (radio/records) and there is no way this guy has $55 million to blow on a plane. Maybe it's a group investment thing where 8-9 people invest together. Soulja Boy may be a one hit wonder and does some producing stuff as well but if he really has $55 million to spend based on his talent, I'm going to crank a marginal sounding song today so I can buy a plane. There's go to be another investor or two. A co-signer maybe?

Is that guy still around? Guess that money from the song with that dance(think it was called the superman)keeps him wealthy.

Where do these idiots get the money ? I'm pretty sure their record sales and tour don't generate this kind of money.

This seriously just shows how people's taste in music have gone down the drain. This guy was in nowhere shape or form a good rapper. Came out with songs that didn't have meaning and basically repeated 3 to 4 words over and over. And this got him this? The world is ******.

BS    

Obviously B.S. His "management team" is trying to hype him up again. It costs $20 million dollars to install 12 leather chairs, some flat screen tv's, a bar, and wood floors? The entire cabin is only 50 feet x 7 feet, that's 350 sq ft. You couldn't spend $20 mill in there if you wanted to. He's obviously just leasing/renting a jet, because he doesn't even have $55 million.
