Soulja Boy has raised the debt ceiling of his checking account on this one… He has allegedly decided that he is sick of renting from Net Jets, and has opted for owning his very own Gulf-stream 5 (G5).  He is supposedly dropping $55 Million on this purchase, which equates to $35 million for the jet and $20 million to pimp it out with a custom bathroom and paint job that includes his logo..  Given his net worth is about half the value of that purchase, it's probably just a publicity stunt to get his name back in the tabloids.. He might need it considering his last album sold only 56,000 copies… Which would give him just enough money for one trip from New York to Los Angeles in "his" new G5.
