Famous rapper Soulja Boy says he is going digital. “This crypto currency man, it’s crazy,” he says in his new album “Young Draco” which has an entire song dedicated to bitcoin.
“Money going up like the stock market (oou)
Flipping big coins I bought a S10 Martin (skrt skrt)
I’m a hustler I be on the internet stacking [?]
Made a million off of Bitcoins
I went platinum.”
No lambos here. The 28 year old rapper says “I got Litecoins, Bitcoins, they my favorite ones.” So no eth either, but he did tweet out the bitcoin song to his 5 million followers.
He said he bought $6,000 worth of bitcoin and that then apparently turned into a million. Bitcoin went from about $200 in 2014 to $20,000 in December 2017.
He may therefore have bought in 2013 at perhaps around $100, making it 60 bitcoins. Believable? Perhaps.
He would have been 23 at the time, and many in that age group first heard about bitcoin in 2013. Moreover, the only other major crypto back then was litecoin, so perhaps he did buy them and maybe he did make a million off crypto.
It could of course otherwise be just art, fictional story telling, or maybe the new generation of artists now has kind of grown with the growth of bitcoin.
This is the second rapper to bitcoin after Eminem’s new album had Royce Da 5’9′ in “Not Alike” stating:
“Everybody doin chick joints
Prolly rob these dudes at fist point
Remember everybody used to bite nickel
Now everybody doin bitcoin.”
Rock or indy music artists have not yet gone bitcoin. Nor has Banksy entertained us with an art piece on crypto. Yet the artists are coming as cryptos now become a cultural phenomena and an accepted technological innovation with bitcoin going mainstream in awareness.
They appeal in particular to the younger digital generation which tends to think cryptos are just cool, but millennials still dominate, with the majority of cryptonians being between 20 to 40 years old. The age bracket that sort of drives this new world.
