Soulja Boy jumps on Bitcoin Bandwagon with a track
"Watch it spinning, watch it move," said Crypto investors, while Soulja Boy, a critically acclaimed American artist from the world, has dropped a trace of cryptocurrencies, probably one of the hottest trends of the last two years. . Tuesday evening, on Twitter, the Chicago-based artist released "Young Drako", one of his albums that would have been around for months, if not years.

While many of his fans liked the album as it was, the supporters of the cryptocurrency received a nice surprise, given that Soulja, who got a cult following for the song "Crank That", published a piece titled " Bitcoin ", no more or less. Although many initially believed that the track had been created to dissent the nascent cryptographic market, as seen by the texts compiled by Genius, this is far from the case.
Soulja, born as DeAndre, opened his track expressing that "he made 100 racks ($ 100k) out of Bitcoin" in the chorus, dropping a series of lines that expressed his apparent affiliation with the cryptocurrency that many have learned to love the last decade. Speaking with those of the "culture of Lambo", DeAndre continued to draw attention to the exotic cars, which he defines as "foreign", alluding to the fact that the money earned through the cryptocurrencies was the catalyst that triggered a relationship with his "little girl" ".
Interestingly, it apparently refers to Square's Cash app, adding that it is "looking at its bands (another colloquial term for $ 1,000) stack through Paypal or the Cash App". The American artist also gave a brief mention to Litecoin and the 24/7 nature of the crypto-market, adding that he "wakes up in the morning to count his funds", which has become a leitmotif of discussion in circles cryptographic during the monumental run-up of 2017.
However, while it would be fun to believe that this track is an accurate representation of Soulja's life, it is likely that the texts used describe a hypothetical scenario to favor his artistic narrative. But one thing is certain, Soulja Boy knows what it is Bitcoin and has a certain (though mild) understanding of this emerging technology.
This is not the first time that artists, particularly rappers and hip-hop musicians, have shown interest in this budding market. On August 30, Eminem, widely regarded as the greatest (the rapper) Of All Time, dropped his album Kamikaze, which included a variety of his fellow artists and important signers and producers. On the track, Non Alike, Royce From 5 & # 39 ;, the Eminem rapper made mention of Bitcoin in a single line.
Forbes reporter said that this reference, albeit small, brings legitimacy to the theory that cryptocurrencies have begun to infiltrate today's pop culture. Journalists wrote:
"The mention of the Eminem album is significant, however, since it suggests not a quick and earnings scheme, nor a way to sell illicit goods online, but rather something that" everyone [is] doing "- which is as common as knowing if you are biting the metal coin to test its quality".
While the market has not reacted to the track, as many would suppose, the two aforementioned presences of "digital gold" in the songs of popular artists show that this innovation is beginning to permeate around the world.
