Soulja Boy spends $55 million on a private jet




We know the rich keep getting richer these days, but rapper Soulja Boy is redefining the term conspicuous consumption. The just-turned-21-year-old recently blew $55 MILLION on a private jet. That's one heck of a birthday present to give yourself.

TMZ says the kid went out and got a $35 million Gulfstream G5 jet, then went about hemorrhaging another $20 million to spruce up the place a bit. He put in 12 custom Italian leather seats, some flatscreen TVs (although, do we really need to specifiy they were flatscreens these days?), FOUR liquor bars, a travertine tile floor, Brazilian hardwood cabinets, a luxury bathroom and a custom paint job with his logo.

There's no telling if he was able to fly it to Miami for his Friday night birthday party (his real birthday was Thursday), but TMZ says that blowout ran another $300,000. We hope Dwight Howard, Bow Wow and Sean Kingston could all chip in a few bucks, because as successful as Soulja Boy is, we highly doubt he has enough to shell out $55 million on a plane. Y'all better tell 'em that.
