A member of Soulja's management team told TMZ that the "Crank That" singer (real name: DeAndre Cortez Way) bought himself the G5 jet for $35 million. But the birthday boy dropped an additional $20 million to pimp out his ride -- with Italian leather seats, flat screen TVs, liquor bars and Brazilian hardwood cabinets. The birthday boy even had his logo painted on the side of the plane.
