Carrington J. Lei that he promised not to end up buying stupid $hit and tricking off all of his money - he was lying.
Especially, since right after that, he bought his father - a man with no known assets - a $250,000 car. Like really... how do you keep insurance, and GAS in that when you're a regular brother?
Life is getting hard for Soulja Boy—so much so that he's now selling off his tweets just to make ends meet. The struggle has hit a new low.
Word has it that the Atlanta rapper who boasts over 5 million Twitter followers will give shout outs, retweets, and verses so long as the price is right. For $1.99 he'll follow you, but for the big spenders looking to buy a beat that'll cost a cool $10,000.
Less than six years ago, “Crank That” was the talk of the ‘Net, and his debut album sold nearly a million copies. By 2007, he made it to No. 18, on Forbes' Hip-Hop Cash Kings list, bringing in $7 million.
In the years since, musically he's faltered. His last album, The Deandre Way sold an embarrassing 13,360 copies in its first week, which he blamed on his label. “Honestly, I shut down for a week [after my album dropped],” he told Complex magazine after the album's release. “I wasn't talking to nobody, I wasn't talking to management, and I wasn't talking to the label. I wasn't picking up nobody's calls. I went like that for a week. I was in a state of confusion. I needed answers…the label only shipped like 18,000 copies [of the album]. So I wasn't able to do gold first week or even 100k, none of that. They only put like 8,000 units in Best Buy. It was crazy.”
