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.

He is not that great of a rapper and I don't see his career having a whole lot of longevity. He will be bankrupt in a couple of years. I don't think that idiot knows how much money it takes to maintain an effin jet. Loser.

Great, another poor kid makes money and blows it all. Snoop Dog needs to get in there and knock some sense into this idiot. This is indicative of what suck-ups industry leeches are, that they'd let a kid do something this financially irresponsible. Maybe Angelina Jolie can take him to Sudan and re-calibrate his priorities.

Yea. No. TMZ needs to start doing some fact checking. This guy did not buy a 55 million dollar plane. He's only worth 26 mil as a lot of other posters have said. To put it in perspective, Amy Winehouse estate is valued between 16 and 30 million. If he financed it that's one thing but he did not buy it.

How can someone spend money like that knowing this country is having so many problems. Why can't the fortunate people help the unfortunate? 55 million can help a lot of people in need right now. I thought Ozzy spending 10K on a Yorkie was dumb, but this takes the cake. As much money as we put in their pockets for seeing their movies, buying their CD's, going to their concerts, etc....you'd think at a time of crisis in the U.S., that those with more money than they can actually handle, would step up and help. How does buying a 10k Yorkie or a 55 million dollar private jet help America in need? I'm just saying, if I had that kind of money I would feel obligated to help people in some way.
