It looks like this Soulja Boy report just isn't flying.

In honor of his birthday, Soulja Boy was said to have dug $55 million deep in his pockets for a new private jet. This is according to a member of his management team who spoke to TMZ.

The "Crank That (Soulja Boy)" and "Turn My Swag On" rapper, born DeAndre Cortez Way, who turned 21 on Thursday, reportedly spent $35 million on the actual Gulfstream G5 jet and is dropping another $20 million on upgrades.

The Pimp My Ride-worthy improvements were said to include custom Italian leather seats, flat screen TVs, four liquor bars, a customized travertine-tiled floor, a revamped bathroom and Brazilian hardwood cabinets.

But a rep for the rapper wants to bring this report down to earth.

"The elaborate rumors circulating about Soulja Boy purchasing a jet for his 21st birthday are grossly over exaggerated and are not true," says the rep.

Soulja Boy is also throwing a birthday party in Miami Friday night, which reportedly set him back $300,000. Sean Kingston, Bow Wow and Dwight Howard were among those who made the guest list for the bash, which will be streamed live – for a fee – on his website.
