What is Soulja Boy's Net Worth?
"I've made millions of dollars off of doing my style, but I want to be the best," said Soulja in his 2010 interview with XXL Magazine, the year he was listed No.18 by Forbes in Hip Hop cash king for earning $7 million a year. In 2021, the rapper is estimated to boast a staggering net worth of $30 million.

With talented new artists emerging every year, Boy's charm and influence may have been diminished. However, he is still raking big by actively working behind his record label, Stacks On Deck Entertainment. And like his giant net worth wasn't enough, he is raking big off his tweets.
In March 2021, Way claimed to be the first rapper to sell his tweet. He reportedly made $1,288 in a crypto tweet marketplace, followed by four more tweets sold in Cryptopolitan. Soulja is still hustling hard; despite having multiple sources adding to his fortune, he has been looking for more. In April 2021, he signed a record deal with Virgin Music.

Some of his most recent credits are I'm Up Now and Max Payne.
