Apparently, there's nothing like a private jet to turn your swag on. If you're Soulja Boy, that is.

The rapper, who rose to fame in 2007 when his single "Crank That (Soulja Boy)" hit No. 1 on the Billboard charts, rang in his 21st birthday yesterday by reportedly purchasing a $35 million jet.

And that's not all...

According to TMZ, he is reportedly spending another $20 million to pimp out the Gulfstream G5 jet with custom Italian leather seats, Brazilian hardwood cabinets, flat-screen TVs, four liquor bars and a custom paint job, among other things.

And just for fun, he's throwing a big birthday bash in Miami Friday night to the tune of $300,000, which Bow Wow and Sean Kingston are expected to attend.

In case you're wondering how Soulja Boy can afford such an extravagant purchase (and birthday party), he did make Forbes list of hip-hop's top cash kings in 2010, ranking in at No. 18 with $6 million earned from his packed touring schedule and record-setting ringtone downloads.

That's nowhere near $55 million, though. So we can only hope the artist is ready to crank out a lot more hits.
