Soulja Boy claims that he closed a $400 million dollar deal and took to social media to share the news with his followers.
“$400 million deal confirmed,” the 25-year old rapper tweeted on Saturday (April 30). “I still they think they low balled me though. I was thinking 2 or 3 billion..”
Soulja doesn’t specify what the deal is for nor what it entails, just that he’s grateful.
The Atlanta rapper became a commercial success after releasing “Crank That (Soulja Boy)” at the age of 17 in 2007 and three years later landed on the 2010 Forbes’ list of Hip Hop Cash Kings for generating over $7 million dollars for that year.
Soulja Boy has reportedly made millions of dollars from ringtone sales alone and likely still receives publishing royalties from “Crank That (Soulja Boy)” and his other Billboard hits as evidenced by Beyonce’s use of the rapper’s lyrics from his 2008 song “Turn My Swag On,” on her Lemonade cut “Hold Up.”
“From being worth 25 million at 25 to being offered 400million and closing out the deal?” he captioned on Instagram. “Just think about where I came from no man seriously!”
The SODMG general’s forthcoming album Blessed is scheduled for release sometime this year which will be his fourth studio album and the follow-up to his 2010 EP The DeAndre Way.
