Soulja Boy Net Worth, Biography & Wiki 2017

DeAndre Cortez Way, commonly known by his stage name of Soulja Boy, is a famous American rap artist, record producer, as well as an actor. Soulja Boy rose to prominence in 2007, when he released a single called “Crank That (Soulja Boy)”. Upon its release, the song peaked at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 music chart, where it remained for seven weeks. “Crank That” proved to be an international hit, which sparked the popularity of the “Soulja Boy” dance, seen in the official music video. Aside from reaching #21 on the list of “100 Best Songs of 2007”, “Crank That” earned a Grammy Awards nomination for Best Rap Song. To date, the single has exceeded five million digital downloads, all of which have contributed to the popularity of Soulja Boy’s debut album. “Souljaboytellem.com” came out in 2007, several months after the release of “Crank That (Soulja Boy)”. Despite the popularity of its main single, the album was met with rather negative critical reviews, largely due to banal and monotonous composition. Nevertheless, “Souljaboutellem.com” sold more than 949,000 copies in the United States, and produced three more singles, namely “Donk”, “Yahhh!” and “Soulja Girl”. So far, Soulja Boy has released three studio albums, the most recent being “The DeAndre Way”, which came out in 2010.

Soulja Boy Net Worth $25 Million

A famous rap artist, how rich is Soulja Boy? According to sources, in 2010, Soulja Boy’s annual salary amounted to $6 million. Subsequently in 2012, he was already earning as much as $10,000 per verse. In regards to his total wealth, Soulja Boy’s net worth is estimated to be $25 million, most of which he has accumulated due to his rapping career.

Soulja Boy was born in 1990 in Chicago, United States. When he was 14 years old, he moved out to Mississippi, where he started working on his rapping career. Soulja Boy started off by posting his songs on MySpace and YouTube. Shortly afterwards, he released “Crank That (Soulja Boy)”, which brought him a lot of public exposure and media attention. Following the commercial success of his debut album, Soulja Boy released his second studio work entitled “iSouljaBoyTellem”, which came out in 2008. In addition to spawning such singles as “Kiss Me Thru the Phone” and “Turn My Swag On”, the album managed to sell 46,000 during its debut week. However, it was met with mostly negative reviews, since many critics felt that Soulja Boy’s second studio work was too similar to its predecessor.

Aside from rapping, Soulja Boy released an episode of a cartoon series called “Soulja Boy: The Animated Series” in 2009. In 2013, he made a cameo appearance in Brian A. Miller’s action thriller film called “Officer Down”, starring Stephen Dorff, Dominic Purcell and David Boreanez. More recently, Soulja Boy appeared opposite Ray J, Lil’ Fizz, and Omarion in the reality series called “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood”, which premiered on television screens in 2014, and has so far aired for one season.

A well-known rap artist, Soulja Boy has an estimated net worth of $25 million.
