Soulja Boy announces that he has signed a deal of epic proportions.
Soulja Boy has been silly rich since he was 17 years old, when his debut single "Crank That" became the No. 1 song in the country. He's still only 25, and in a recent Instagram post, he revealed his net worth to be $25 million. That's also the number that shows up on Soulja Boy's page on CelebrityNetWorth.com. And according to Soulja, that number is about to go way up, as he claims to have just signed a deal worth $400 million.
"From 25 million at 25 to being offered 400 million and closing out the deal?" he asked rhetorically on Instagram. "Just think about where I came from no man seriously!"
After confirming his alleged $400 million deal, Soulja admitted that he might have gotten low-balled, as he was expecting "2 or 3 billion."
There is no information regarding who presented Soulja with the massive deal, or what the deal is for. Soulja has stated that some major news outlets have been competing for the chance to break the story on his crazy new deal.
Earlier tonight, Soulja Boy previewed the video to Birdman's upcoming single "Respek" via his Instagram, so maybe he's conducting business with the Cash Money boss. That wouldn't make too much sense, though, as according to Forbes' 2015 list of the "Wealthiest Hip-Hop Artists," Birdman's reported net worth was $150 million. In fact, by adding $400 million to Soulja Boy's current income, Soulja would rank No. 4 on that list, behind Diddy, Dr. Dre, and Jay Z. Think this deal is legit?
