A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie is getting in on the crypto movement. The New York rapper took to Twitter on Monday (Jan. 31) to say he’ll only accept payments in “Ethereum,” a popular form of cryptocurrency.
“Only accepting ethereum for shows now for those who been trying to book me,” Boogie wrote.
The “Swervin” lyricist celebrated his 26th birthday in December 2021 by dropping a new prequel album titled B4 A Boogie Vs Artist.
The brief seven-track release was the first A Boogie project since 2020’s Artist 2.0, which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 and became the rapper’s third Top 10 debut on the chart. The 20-track album featured appearances from Young Thug, Khalid, Summer Walker, DaBaby, Roddy Ricch, Gunna, London On Da Track and two appearances from Lil Uzi Vert.
Boogie becomes one of a line of artists who's making their move into the market of cryptocurrencies and NFT's, with Meek Mill, Nas, and Tory Lanez being among a growing number of others. As for the investor side of the coin, for any investors who remain unconvinced should remember how much money The Beatles collectibles currently sell for. If NFTs had existed in 1969, those who purchased an exclusive, digitized version of Abbey Road alone would likely be holding something incredibly valuable today.
