Cryptomania

IMG_0789

I wrote this rap back in June this year at a cafe somewhere in Amsterdam. At the time there was a lot of renewed interest in cryptocurrencies and prices were beginning to spiral out of control (and continue to this very day with Bitcoin having just reached an all time new high of over $10,000!!). Below is my rap inspired by all things crypto…

 

I bought a bunch of Bitcoin
at da top of da tree
But my boy Daryl bought
when it was almost free
Coz Daryl got da skills
He know when to make da kill
I am a Johnny come lately
Always beggin outside Macy’s
All I wanna do is make it
I accidentally always fake it
Me n Maceo always look
To Daryl D da crook
Tappin all that homie knows
Thinkin bro it’s gonna blow

Cryptomania
A world of insania
Cryptomania
Extendin to Asia
Cryptomania
And all da pain in ya
Cryptogamia
When da prices go up!!!

Then one day da bubble burst
I’m thinkin yo I got it the worst
I bought all the way at da top
Got one hell of a mess to mop
Now I am slammin on doors
N clutching at straws
Rappin to all n sundry
Hustling like a real numpty
When I tell em the price I bought
They reply I am a chump worth naught
Now I am diggin through all my thoughts
Asking; What have you every caught?
Any gold any silver?
Or fools rock n fake guilders?

Cryptomania
A world of insania
Cryptomania
Extendin to Asia
Cryptomania
And all da pain in ya
Cryptogamia
When da prices go up!!!
