Rapper Soulja Boy Claims Bitcoin’s “Glory Days are Officially Over” for Early Crypto Investors
Even though one-hit-wonder Soulja Boy recently paid homage to BTC on his most recent studio record (released late last year), he is now claiming that the currency’s glory days are behind it.
"When some people meet Soulja Boy, and they get to see how I am they say, 'Wow, I didn't know that he was like that. I thought he was totally different.' … People judge people. You can't judge a book by its cover." –@souljaboy https://t.co/hsXTx43hL6

In a recent interview with a local media outlet, the 28-year old rapper was heard commenting on the volatile nature of the premier crypto asset and how it could be a risky investment proposition for everyone:
“You're not going to get the same returns as you would if you had gotten in on it early because it became mainstream and everybody knows about Bitcoin now.”
During the course of the aforementioned interview, Soulja Boy stated that he now thinks that the future of global finance lays within niche market areas such as cannabis stocks, e-sports, and electric cars.
A Deeper Look At The Matter
The former global superstar who achieved overnight fame through the release of his debut single “Crank That (Soulja Boy), said that his upcoming studio album will include a track called ‘Bitcoin,’ — which as the name suggests, will clearly be filled with a whole host of references pertaining to the digital asset.
Some of the lyrics are as follows:
“Made a hundred racks ($100,0000) off of bitcoin, got on a computer and bought a Bitcoin.”
In a similar vein, even Eminem’s most recent album “Kamikaze,” contained a nod to bitcoin on its ninth track— where one of the featured artists rapped the following words in praise of the top altcoin “remember everybody used to bite Nickel, now everybody doing bitcoin.”
In closing out this article, it is worth remembering that a whole host of rappers in the past have been caught in different crypto scams. For example, last November, rapper TI was hit with a lawsuit which claimed that he had been involved with a project that swindled large amounts of money that he had procured from his investors.
