C'mon Son! Moment of the Week: Soulja Boy drops $55 millie on a G5

Please ROB me. Thanks. 
Most young adults would be content celebrating their 21st birthday with a trip to Las Vegas, but rap superstar Soulja Boy had a grander idea.
For his 21st birthday Thursday, the Atlanta rapper bought himself a $35 million dollar private jet, a rep from his management team reportedly told TMZ.
But apparently, the G5 jet needed some "Pretty Boy Swag" upgrades. According to reports, Soulja will be spending an additional $20 million dollars to add flat screen TVs, 4 liquor bars, a dozen Italian leather seats, Brazilian hardwood cabinets, and travertine tiled flooring.
The restroom will be remolded and enlarged, and the aircraft will get a new custom paint job featuring his logo.
A spokesperson for Soulja Boy had not responded to our request to confirm the jet purchase by press time.
On Friday, the "Crank That" rapper, will host a birthday extravaganza in Miami believed to cost $300,000. Sean Kingston, Bow Wow, and Dwight Howard are expected to attend. The event will be streamed live from at 11 p.m. eastern.
In April, Soulja Boy told Hip Hop Media Training that he was planning to team up with MTV for a Las Vegas-based bash. "MTV [is going to] be doing my birthday party. It's going to be in Vegas. I'm going to be in Vegas," Soulja Boy said. "MTV is going to be doing it just like I did my swag eighteenth party. I don't know. It's going to be my first time being 21. So I'm just gonna do me."
Say it with me: C'MON SON!

...and then when no one cares and everyone stops buying his music he won't be able to keep up with the payments. Hold on let me back up a bit. I cannot continue without sharing how utterly disgusted I am by this. What a COON a$$ move! Regardless of how much money HE THINKS he has, Soulja Boy isn't hot like he was a few years ago. His album sales have tanked and hip hop continues to suffer from the song plus dance craze he started. I wonder about the identity and credentials of his financial advisor. I mean seriously, WhoTF approved this?  I am not wishing ill on him or anyone else but I think this is an example of the ridiculous financial decisions people make when they go from nothing to a whole lot of something. I sure hope the $300,000 party is a rumor because there are clubs that will pay celebs to host parties so anyone who wants to drop $300k when they can make easy money is a fool. Granted, you may not host the club you want to host but if somebody gave me $10k to host MY birthday party, I wouldn't hesitate.  If he keeps making decisions like this, in a few years  he will be on some documentary discussing how he blew all of his money and regrets making dumb decisions. Mark my words!
