To this generation, Master P is considered a legend because of his business acumen. The amounts of money he made was legendary and, in future generations, Soulja Boy will be viewed the same way. Few rappers in this new era make any money, let alone on Soulja Boy’s level.
The Chicago to Atlanta transplant enjoyed music business success from 2007 through 2010. Since then, Soulja Boy has primarily enjoyed success on the mixtape level. In 2014, Soulja Boy was cast for VH1’s latest series, “Love & Hip Hop Hollywood.”
Soulja Boy went off on Nia Riley, his onscreen girlfriend, during an argument and he revealed he was worth $25 million. People were ready to clown Soulja Boy until they realized it was true. Adding to his fortune is what VH1 pays him for being on the show, as he revealed via Twitter, he gets paid $25,500 per episode for appearing on the show.
