Soulja Boy Is Desperate For Cash: Selling Verses, Tracks, Tweets and Followers For Dollars

A fool and his money will always part ways. It happened to MC Hammer and it happened to Mike Tyson. Is Soulja Boy‘s name soon to be added to this list?

The young, Atlanta-based rapper has often boasted and bragged about his extraordinary wealth. He hit it big with his 2007 breakout hit “Crank That (Soulja Boy)” and in many ways, he blazed a trail to viral success with his aggressive use of social media on sites like MySpace, YouTube and Twitter.

50 Cent became so enamored with Soulja Boy that he said, “If I had to wish to be another artist that’s in existence right now, I’d wish to be Soulja Boy,” back when two teamed up for the cover of XXL magazine in 2010.

Well, Curtis’ co-sign has proven to be the kiss of death for DeAndre, because his career has been on a steep downward trajectory for the past three years.

His last album, 2010’s The DeAndre Way sold a meager 13,000 albums in its first week. It flopped so badly that Soulja Boy has damn near been run out of the music industry and retreated to churning out free mixtapes nobody really wants.

So it shouldn’t surprise us to hear that Soulja Boy is searching for new sources of revenue. On the SODMG site, Soulja Boy is selling everything from guest verses, beats, tweets, mentions and more.

$500 for a guest verse? Is that a bargain price or highway robbery, given his current stature in the industry?

And isn’t it a violation of Twitter’s rules to sell follows?

Oh well, a brotha’s gotta eat.
