Murda Beatz is a famous, multi-platinum record producer, known for his popular collaborations with big names like Nicki Minaj, Drake, Travis Scott, and others. Among his many titles, he now has the right to call himself a Bitcoin holder, as well.
A New Member Of The Bitcoin Family
Beatz announced this news to Twitter for his 283,200 followers, giving a salute to Anthony “Pomp” Pompliano, the co-founder of Morgan Creek Digital, as well as Jermane Prime, the hip-hop artist, for being the two men that helped him decide to buy it.
Pomp promptly congratulated Beatz for becoming a new Bitcoiner, asking his followers to welcome Beatz into the fold, and welcome him, they did.

Murda Beatz, real name Shane Lee Lindstrom, stands as a Canada-based record producer, and worked on eight albums that were nominated for Grammys. He did so working alongside big names, like Travis Scott, Cardi B, Nipsey Hussle, and even produced Drake’s smash hit: “Nice For What.” This hit stood as No.1 on the Billboard Hot 100, doing so for 8 weeks straight.
An Attractive Space
The crypto industry at large has long since been an attractive space for celebrities to be involved in. All the way back in 2013, Snoop Dogg announced that he was making plans to sell his albums in Bitcoin.
Even Floyd Mayweather and Paris Hilton got in on the action, doing so during the ICO craze in 2017. Both parties endorsed various new coins that emerged from the market, but both parties proved to be less-than-honest when it comes to these projects’ quality.
Even Gwyneth Paltrow, the founder of the “Wellness” platform, Goop, advocated for Bitcoin. Somehow, the women have even managed to serve as an adviser at the Abra Bitcoin wallet, as well.
May Famous Faces
Even Aston Kutcher, the actor, and tech investor, had crypto pique his interest. Kutcher had invested with the billionaire, Mark Cuban, into UnikoinGold. Sadly, the startup behind Unikrn was forced to pay out a fine of $6.1 million a month ago, as the SEC found out it had violated securities laws.
Ben Askren stands as another celebrity, being a former UFC fighter. Askren regularly tweets about crypto in general, and has openly supported the latest Bitcoin Halving by quite literally changing his Twitter name to “Bitcoin Halving May 13.”
As the years went on, certain skeptics of Bitcoin has turned around completely going fully bullish. A key example of this would be MicroStrategy, the business intelligence firm, buying a staggering $425 million in Bitcoin. Micheal Saylor, Microstrategy’s CEO, had famously warned that Bitcoin’s days were numbered, doing it back in 2013.
