Soulja Boy announced on Twitter that he has signed a $400 million deal. However, it remains unclear whether the declaration is true or not.
The series of tweets by the rapper were up on Twitter on May 1 at around 1:31 A.M. and continued until 2:02 A.M. The first tweet from Soulja Boy said: “F@%k everybody who doubted me I’m Finna change my number.”
He then went on to give a shout out to Beyonce, whom he referred to as the queen. He used the hashtags “#Lemonade” and “#holdup” in his second tweet. Hold Up is one of the songs on Beyonce’s Lemonade album, for which Soulja Boy received a writer’s credit.
The full credits for Lemonade surfaced shortly after the 12-track album was dropped on Tidal. Soulja Boy was then given credit for the aforementioned song via his birth name, Deandre Way. Other people on the credits are The-Dream for the song 6-Inch, as well as Andre 3000 and Big Boi who contributed to All Night.
The rapper’s big Twitter announcement came a few minutes thereafter. The whole tweet read: “$400 million deal confirmed. I still they think they low balled me though. I was thinking 2 or 3 billion.”
He followed it up with another tweet saying that CBS, Fox, and Forbes have been competing to have his story. It was unclear though if he meant his life story or the account behind his tweet regarding the supposed $400 million deal.
Aside from his tweets, the rapper also took to Instagram to post photos of himself holding some cash.
