Soulja Boy

A rapper by the name of DeAndre Cortez Way turned 21 Thursday, but you might know him better as Soulja Boy.
Soulja Boy rocketed to fame when he was only 17 years old, when his song, “Crank That (Soulja Boy),” was released. The rap song quickly became a number one hit, making him the youngest person to write, produce and perform a number one song, HollywoodLife reports.
So what does a 21-year-old with that sort of success do for his birthday? Soulja Boy dropped $55 million on a birthday gift for himself in the form of a private jet. According toTMZ, the jet itself only cost $35 million, but Soulja Boy wanted it outfitted in a way befitting his star status, so he spent $20 million on fixing it up.
That kind of money bought the rapper Italian leather seats, flat screen TVs, four liquor bars and Brazilian hardwood cabinets. Soulja Boy also completely renovated the in-flight lavatory with a new, lavish bathroom and repainted the entire jet so it now includes his custom logo. All the essentials really.
The birthday celebrations continued as Soulja Boy threw a party at a Miami nightclub featuring the likes of Dwight Howard, Bow Wow, and Sean Kingston with a price-tag of $300,000, TMZ reports.
