28-year-old ex-realtor, bitcoin millionaire, and rapper, CoinDaddy, was just lately interviewed by Enterprise Insider. That’s some severe shizzle for a person who claims his songs intentionally “aren’t that good.” Let’s discover these murky waters the place crypto and music meet.
Bitcoin… blah blah blah… Rapper
So I guess you’re simply dying to listen to the CoinDaddy story. It’s truly fairly quick and candy…
In 2013 he met a man in a bar who informed him to place every thing into bitcoin, so he put every thing into bitcoin. In 2017 he checked the value for the primary time in 4 months, purchased a pimp go well with and have become a rapper.
To be truthful, the man comes throughout as fairly regular and self-aware within the interview. I smiled when Enterprise Insider claimed Eminem and Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs as inspirations. Finger on the heartbeat of recent hip-hop there, eh Enterprise Insider?
He talks of wanting to make use of the character of CoinDaddy to deliver crypto into the mainstream. Personally, I feel the lyrics are maybe too esoteric and never humorous sufficient to attraction to anybody exterior the crypto neighborhood. Backing this up is the truth that (as of writing) he has solely 2647 subscribers… and I’m not considered one of them.
Search YouTube for ‘bitcoin music’… go on, I dare you! The truth is, I’ll present a hyperlink. However I warn you, proceed with warning. Watching only a few seconds of only a few of these movies has made me query my whole belief-system/stab myself repeatedly within the ears/transfer to the south pole.
Though most of the ‘artists’ are undoubtedly in it for the laughs, I can’t hear any of these laughs above the audible sound of individuals cringing. If you may get previous this stage of cheesiness, among the extra earnest makes an attempt are literally funnier.
The issue with making music about cryptocurrency, the financial system or present affairs, basically, is that your lyrics should be timeless or they’ll simply come throughout as tacky. The issue with making comedy songs is usually the terrible accompanying music.
