A claim that Soulja Boy had purchased a $55 million private jet for his 21st birthday has been reported false. The rumor originated from Soulja Boy himself, his assistant, and a member of the rapper’s management, Shai Storm, who has not yet replied to the numerous queries on the subject.

After the story about his private jet was posted, ej went on Miami’s radio station 99 Jamz on Saturday. When asked about his new purchase, the rapper did not deny his birthday present to himself and simply declared that he reached “G5 status”.

Soulja Boy’s spokesperson Greg Miller took charge of rectifying the lie and stated, “The elaborate rumors circulating about Soulja Boy purchasing a jet for his 21st birthday are grossly over exaggerated and are not true.”

Soulja Boy, real name DeAndre Cortez Way, made quick success in 2007 with his hit single Crank That, which was nominated for Best Rap Song at the Grammys. By 2010, the rapper made the Forbes’ Hip Hop Cash Kings list with $7 million in earnings.

However, Soulja Boy is currently suffering major financial issues as the rapper owes more than $20 000 in back taxes to the State of California. Soulja Boy’s Georgia home was also foreclosed on in the previous year.

Rihanna The Official Drunken Queen of Barbados

While most of us woke up and went to work this morning, Rihanna got up, slid into this a pile of ruby fishnets and started downing rum out of a cup she found lying next to a chicken coop.

From there, it was only another a matter of more rum until she thought simulating doggy style sex on a parade float would be an awesome idea. And when isn’t it? Anyway, all this is to celebrate Kadooment Day in Barbados which I’m just going to assume is some sort of ritual to declare a new queen of da island.

Later, a bunch of nerds will use “Google” and tell me it’s about the sugar cane harvest then question how I even got this job. Which, funny enough, also involved rum, fishnets and this. Whatever this is.
