How much money does Soulja Boy have?
Soulja Boy is currently only worth 26 million euros. But he could soon approach the half a billion euro mark. Because the rapper has negotiated a mega deal for over 300 million euros and the money should soon flow into his account. So Soulja Boy will then at least financially be in the top league of rappers. Even though his last album was released in 2014, Soulja Boys is still in business today. Incidentally, the rapper began his career early, so that he should have taken care of himself, at least financially, for the rest of his life. Most fans can probably only identify the rapper as Soulja Boy and not as DeAndre Cortez Way, the real name of the good guy.
Soulja Boy’s Career
Without MySpace, Soulja Boy’s career would have been very different. Because the rapper owes his fame to the internet portal, which is unfortunately no longer as hyped as it was when Soulja Boy really took off. There he released his first single “Crank That” as a video. Incidentally, the beats for this hit were created together with Flo Rida, although that was not the sole success factor. Because Soulja Boys fans also celebrated the rapper for his dance style early on. After all, there is no one who cranks like Soulja Boy himself. In fact, this dancing game is so popular that it also appears in a World of Warcraft evolution. This is truly an honor for Soulja Boy.
He was also able to celebrate other records with his debut single. Soulja Boy is the first artist ever to have a single song downloaded more than 3 million times . In addition to the triple platinum award, the rapper was also nominated for a Grammy for “Crank That”, which he unfortunately could not win. His first complete album was released in autumn 2007. Just one year later, the rapper’s second solo album was released, but it only reached number 43 on the US Billboard charts.
So his advertising campaign at the time was not exactly crowned with success. It was actually Soulja Boy’s declared goal to sell a million copies of the album in the first week after the official release date in order to set a new record. However, Soulja Boy was only able to sell 35,000 albums during the period mentioned, so that he didn’t even come close to his goal of selling 1 million records. By the way, Soulja Boy is no longer quite as active as a rapper, but has mainly gone among entrepreneurs. As CEO of SODMG, Soulja Boy has signed many other artists. Incidentally, the list of his mixtapes is much longer than that of the albums that the rapper has released so far,
