The rapper Soulja Boy is set to release a new book on how he became a teenager millionaire. The rapper believes that the book can inspire other young people to learn how to find their way from rags to riches, the same way that he did. The book is going to be called ‘Teenage Millionaire,’ and chronicles his rise to fame and fortune as a young man.

“I made my first million dollars when I was 16 years old,” Soulja Boy told Billboard.“I came from a place where a lot of people don’t make it out to see the type of things I’ve seen around the world and see the amount of money that I’ve obtained. I just wanna tell all the people how I did it.”

Some think that Soulja Boy is the wrong person to be giving financial advice to teenagers, since most aspiring rappers never get a record deal. The industry is not just about how good you are, but who you know and whether you get lucky enough to get signed. Also, Soulja Boy didn’t own the company that pays him today; he is actually a highly paid employee of someone else. This, added to the fact that he never got any formal training in the field of business, makes this book a risky proposition.
