Soulja Boy is an investment profit; bought a soap company

Earlier this week Soulja Boy was on The Breakfast Club talking about how he likes to diversify his investments. Try new things.  In particular, Soap.

“It’s just different businesses … once you get into the music industry, you know, branch out, do different stuff like try different things. Try different business ventures,” he said.   “Everybody needs soap.”

The 29-year-old rapper recently revealed that he and manager Miami Mike invested in a Mississippi franchise of The Soap Shop and sources told TMZ that the store’s profits have tripled amid the Coronavirus pandemic.

The Soap Shop corporation, which sells hand soap, dish detergent, and other cleaning products that people are snatching up amid the COVID-19 outbreak, has gone from selling 100 bottles of cleaning products a month to well-over 3,000 bottles, according to the website. That means the bubbly biz has seen a “record-setting” 3,000 percent increase.

The Soap Shop also gives back to the community by benefiting local kids through Soulja’s charity called Bubbles for Cash.  Which I love. I love the title and the effort.
