Remember that $400 million deal Soulja Boy bragged about earlier this month? Amidst skepticism, World Poker Fund Holdings has confirmed that it is, indeed, true.
Billboard reports that the rapper has inked a five-year endorsement deal with the company, which refers to him as “one of the most influential urban entertainers and artists on social media today.”
“I invest in things I understand,” said Soulja Boy. “I enjoy music, and of course gaming. Being an influencer is a form of currency. Having portfolio diversification is critical if you want to be an effective brand ambassador. With regards to World Poker Fund, I believe in its strategy, its team, the vision, and management’s ability to target its financial goals.”
World Poker spokesman Matthew Bird offers an explanation as to why such an enormous number. “We no longer are fed content from major news networks — we seek it out and consume it by individual influencers that enrich our lifestyles,” said Bird. “Soulja Boy represents the best of the best and we are already seeing the impact from his presence.”
Soulja Boy really got them stacks on deck now.
