July 30 Update: Ha, so it turns out Soulja Boy didn’t buy the jet. That’s what is being reported by TMZ after a reporter talked to a spokesman of the rapper. Too bad.
Oh, Soulja Boy, you always give us some of the most ridiculous news. If you’re not remaking Juice and playing Tupac’s role of Bishop, you’re dropping absurd videos for equally absurd tracks like “Money in a Trash Bag.” Or you’re, you know, spending $55 million on a jet as a way of celebrating your 21st birthday. OK, to be fair, the jet apparently only cost $35 million with the additional $20 million being spent on making the jet the most tricked out ride ever. According to TMZ, it features “like 12 custom Italian leather seats, flat screen TVs, four liquor bars, a special travertine tiled floor, and Brazilian hardwood cabinets.” Good lord.
