When he falsely announced he got a $400 Million deal
When Soulja Boy announced that he'd signed a $400 million deal with in "in-flight gaming" company World Poker Fund in 2016, it seemed too good to be true. Turns out, it was.
Though Soulja seemed very convinced that he'd signed an $80 million-a-year contract for 5 years, the report was quickly debunked. It turns out that the company paid the rapper in stock, capping the value at $400 million. The company itself is only valued at $52 million. It turned out that the shares Soulja was holding on to were valued at about $2.5 million, which is nothing to scoff at, but a pretty big letdown from Soulja's premature announcement.
