It has been reported by announcing the news to his 283,200 followers on Twitter that Beatz “saluted” hip-hop artist Jermane Prime and Morgan Creek Digital co-founder Anthony Pompliano as being instrumental in him making the purchase.

However, Anthony Pompliano, also known as Pomp, congratulated him on becoming the newest Bitcoiner and asked his followers to welcome him, which they happily did.
Murda Beatz is a Canadian record producer who has worked on eight Grammy-nominated albums with the likes of Cardi B, Travis Scott, Nipsey Hussle, and he produced Drake’s smash hit “Nice for What,” which was No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 8 weeks.
Likewise, the crypto industry has long attracted the involvement of celebrities. Back in 2013, Snoop Dogg announced plans to sell his albums in Bitcoin.

Over the years, Bitcoin has also managed to turn certain skeptics into bull.
Thus, the crypto space is still far from reaching mainstream adoption, so the involvement of celebrities does help bring attention from people who may not hear about crypto.
