Famous rapper Soulja Boy might just be a bitcoin hodler.
The 28-year-old musician, perhaps best-known for his debut single "Crank That," debuted a new song about bitcoin in his latest album "Young Draco." Simply titled "Bitcoin," the track describes how Soulja "made [$1] million off of bitcoins" after seemingly buying in at $6,000.
"Man, this going crazy the cryptocurrency man," the lyrics begin, continuing:
"I made 100 racks off of bitcoin (bit)
You can catch me trapping with the bitcoin (bit)
You can catch me running up the bitcoin (yeah)
I spent 6,000 on the bitcoin"
(Urban Dictionary defines "100 racks" as being $100,000.)
He also references owning litecoins, though he does not provide any firm details in the song about his holdings.
Most recently, bitcoin even played a cameo on Eminem's new album "Kamikaze."
Royce Da 5'9', a guest artist on "Not Alike," notes that "now everybody doing bitcoin" on the track – he wasn't kidding.
