Soulja Boy’s net worth is $30 million.
Soulja Boy likes to brag about how much money he has and although he’s been busted for flossing fake bills, he still is worth a whopping $30 million. Soulja Boy was born DeAndre Cortez Way in Chicago, Illinois but was raised in Atlanta, GA. When he was just 14 years old he began messing around with an at home recording studio. At 17 years old he released “Crank That” which became a huge hit and viral sensation earning him $7 million that year. The success of the single led him to a record deal with Interscope.
His subsequent albums were flops although he had hit singles with “Kiss Me Thru the Phone”, “Turn My Swag On” and “Pretty Boy Swag”. He was released from Interscope and signed with Universal. He released several mix tapes but it has been his investments outside of music that have proven most lucrative.
Soulja Boy uses his notoriety from starring on Love & Hip Hop to lead to other business ventures. He boasted a $400 million deal with in-flight gaming system CelebrityWorld.com although that number was not verified. He’s also a skilled poker player who earned $400,000 in a single year from his poker game alone. He owns a few Subway sandwich shops and in 2018 launched his own tech systems with SouljaBoyGames and SouljaBoy Watch.
Soulja Boy also has his own record label called Stacks on Deck Entertainment and invests in signing new artists. Next year Soulja Boy will star in a new reality TV show “Marriage Boot Camp” while continuing to pursue acting and music and navigating his businesses. Soulja Boy was smart to know that success at such a young age meant he’d have to look for several revenue streams in order for his money to last. It’s this diverse portfolio that has added up to Soulja Boy’s net worth of $30 million.
