The American rap artist Soulja Boy paid tribute to the most famous cryptocurrency in the world on his latest album. The track, simply titled "Bitcoin", presents the fourth album of the topper chart, Young Drako, which was released at the beginning of today.
Soulja Boy could be the biggest Bitcoin advertiser
With the growing number of noteworthy references occurring in all entertainment media, bitcoins continue to move rapidly towards the permanence of today's and tomorrow's popular culture. However, unlike previous name checks that focused on dark web crime or tech-geeks, or met with general mind bogglements, the last quote is a slightly more positive assessment, though a little bit one-dimensional.
"Bitcoin" is the fourth track taken from the fourth studio album by the American rapper Soulja Boy, Young Drako. The album was released on Thursday and was released by SODMG Records and Palm Tree Entertainment.
In terms of lyric content, the track is rather simple. As you might suspect, Soulja Boy avoids some of the most complex socio-political and philosophical ideas that surround the bitcoin and focuses instead exclusively on the financial side of things. He is not ashamed in his admission that he is not here for the tech:
"I made a hundred racks with bitcoins, you can surprise me while I'm running the bitcoin."
During the texts of "Bitcoin", Paypal is mentioned in a completely inexplicable way, before CashApp. Probably hoped a little too much for the bars that refer to the transactions on the blockchain and the importance of protecting your private key. Computer security, of course, is not so attractive to the friends that Soulja Boy intends to attract with his newfound technology and / or wealth.
The rapper also reveals his entry point into the bitcoin market which, compared to today's prices, seems to have managed to get a good deal:
"I spent 6,000 for the bitcoin."
That said, the track would probably have had a very different feeling if the hook was: "I spent 17,000 bitcoins".
Soulja Boy is not the only mainstream rapper to do the bitcoin with the name in 2018. Last month, the award-winning multiple award-winning performer Eminem referred to the cryptocurrency on "Not Alike", featured on the latest album 39; artist Kamikaze.
"Remember that everyone used to bite Nickel, now everyone makes bitcoins."
Of course, none of these musical references can be compared to those that come from Japan at the top of bitcoin mania last winter. The Kasotsuka Shojo are, or perhaps were, an eight-piece J-pop band. Each member represents one of the main cryptocurrencies. Among them is bitcoin, bitcoin money, ether, NEM and XRP. Their first track was titled "The Moon and Virtual Currencies and Me". Unfortunately, NewsBTC was not able to trace the position of Kasotsuka Shojo in time for publication.
