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.

How soon until this ghetto punk gang banger is broke and the pane is taken back as a repo or form of payment? Don't you just hate stupid people with money? Only thing worse than them are gang bangers.

Don't you know?, he's one of those job creators! Ffrom the sound of it at least somebody's made a few moneymaking jobs out there. Hopefully they are all in ithis country. And when he's finished pimping out his ride he'll probably make lots of jobs for bankruptcy attorneys and collection agents and process servers not to mention the jobs for the bi-yatches that he will most likely have serving him drinks while wearing next to nothing I'm sure. Oh, I forgot about the pilots job. Probably when he's finished on the jet he won't have enough money to buy the jet fuel that it takes to run the thing! Maybe I'm wrong though and he'll be the next Russell Simmons or jay-z or puffy ditty daddy.

And people gripe about Big Oil CEO's getting a few mil in bonuses. How come nobody ever complains about these people's extravagances?

Just imagine if he could have fed millions of starving people in Africa with that money?

That's why people--not me--use the term "ni**er rich."

He could have easily have use of a jet for $125,000 worth of flight time. Stupid. Does he even have a passport?

Celebrity networth claims this guy's "networth" is 23 million dollars, either this story is BS or he had to borrow an incredible amount of money. In this recession, I have a hard time believing anyone would take the risk of lending money to a rsik like that

Lies, his Net worth didn't grow past $23-$24 Million this year. He's obviously renting the jet and the operation and servicing fee's are way beyond his pay grade. Try again next time, your career is over! The B3AST finished you!
