Kodak Black may be joining the “Paid in Bitcoin” revolution.
In a recent interview with the Full Send Podcast, the rapper explained the difference between his fees when he goes on tour with individual shows, vs. when he goes on tour with festivals. Regardless of which type of show he does, however, he wants to get crypto payments from now on.
“I swear that’s what I was saying, bro,” said Kodak Black, when asked by the hosts whether he’d want to be paid in Bitcoin. “That’s what I was telling fam and them to tell the people, like, ‘Ok, if I get $300K for a show, send me, like, $100K in Bitcoin.’ I’ma start doing that now.”
Fans of the show will recall that the Full Send Podcast has been doing a lot of cryptocurrency conversation lately. This is the same podcast where it was revealed that Lil Uzi Vert used Ethereum crypto to pay for his girlfriend, JT of the City Girls’ birthday gift (a McLaren).
“He just bought his girlfriend a car,” said RD Whittington, a celebrity car broker, on his episode of the podcast. “It was a gift. And he paid it in Ethereum.”
Kodak Black also recently made headlines when he challenged Jay-Z to a Verzuz battle for the chance to be the VP of Roc Nation.
Kodak Black set up a Bitcoin wallet and reportedly got paid by Drake
Kodak Black first got a taste of the brave new world of cryptocurrency back in February 2022. As AfroTech previously reported, Drake told the “Super Gremlin” rapper to set up a Bitcoin wallet, then reportedly sent him $300,000 in the coveted crypto coins.
“Drake and I do a lot behind the scenes talking and s—t,” he said on The Breakfast Club. “I ain’t tell nobody this, but the other week that n—a sent me a quarter-million dollars, for no reason. Me and my brother Lance, we in the car and this n—a text me like, ‘You got Bitcoin?’ I was like, ‘Nah.’ He was like, ‘Set up a Bitcoin wallet.’ So I’m putting two and two together, that’s four! S—t, and then over time, those coins got up to like 40 bands a coin. So then that s—t came in and it’s really like $300,000 in my Bitcoin wallet right now.”
