Soulja Boy has snagged himself an impressive deal, but we’re not surprise. Earlier this month, the rapper/reality star tweeted:
$400 million deal confirmed. I still they think they low balled me though. I was thinking 2 or 3 billion..
This week, the Love & Hip Hop Hollywood cast member confirmed signing a deal with FilmOn Records. He shared a photo on his Instagram, shaking hands with FilmOn CEO Alki David with the caption
I’m in the fam @alkidavid.
Details have not yet been released.
Soulja Boy is a rapper, record producer, actor, and entrepreneur. In September 2007, his single “Crank That (Soulja Boy)” reached number one on the US Billboard Hot 100. The single was initially self-published on the internet, and it later became a number-one hit in the United States for seven non-consecutive weeks starting in September 2007. On August 17 Way was listed at number 18 on the Forbes list of Hip-Hop Cash Kings of 2010 earning $7 million for that year.
Way has currently released three studio albums and one independent album: his debut studio album Souljaboytellem.com (2007) was certified platinum by the RIAA. However, his next two albums, iSouljaBoyTellem (2008) and The DeAndre Way (2010) did not match the commercial success of his debut, the latter only selling 100,000 copies. He is currently working on his upcoming fourth studio album, Blessed.
