Atlanta rapper Soulja Boy, took to social media Sunday, May 1st to boast he inked a $400 million deal.
The 25-year-old, who (before the deal) had a reported net worth of $25 million. In 2007, Crank That (Soulja Boy) was the first song to ever sell 3 million digital copies, this setting off the digital music era. The Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood star wrote the deal should have been in the billions, but he chose to settle for almost half a billion. The savvy entrepreneur already has a writing credit on Beyoncé’s “Hold Up” off of her new Lemonade album. He wrote..
“From being worth 25 million at 25 to being offered 400million and closing out the deal? Just think about where I came from no man seriously!”
Soulja Boy already has his hands in: SBeezy Lights, Soulja Board-branded hoverboards, and an official Soulja Boy app that allows you to chat with him.
This deal will probably make Soulja Boy one of the richest rappers. Nice.
