A BOOGIE WIT DA HOODIE WILL ONLY ACCEPT CRYPTOCURRENCY FOR ARTIST BOOKINGS GOING FORWARD

A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie is getting in on the crypto movement. The New York rapper took to Twitter on Monday (January 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.

A Boogie followed up the project with an interview with HipHopDX where he said he considers himself one of the top rappers in the game.

“I’m definitely one of those top guys now,” A Boogie told HipHopDX inside his trailer at Rolling Loud California. “I’m not where I want to be yet, but you already know what I’m going for. Number one, and we’re not settling for anything less. I used to settle for less because I never had that goal to look all the way up there, but now that we looking up there, it’s looking scary for a lot of people.”

When asked to elaborate on his current mindset, A Boogie said he was addicted to his craft.

“I’m at a part of my career where I’m addicted to what I’m doing,” he added. “Every part of this step, even if it’s a failure in life, it’s like another journey to where I’m going, and I appreciate this whole process. I’m having so much fun with the process.”
