Hip hop legend Busta Rhymes says he’s considering trying to get paid in Bitcoin (BTC).
The “Break Ya Neck” superstar told his 3.8 million fans on Twitter that he was thinking about accepting BTC for concerts and other business dealings.

The rapper, whose real name is Trevor Tahiem Smith Jr., also pitched a question to fellow artists.
“Let me pose the question.
Would you as an artist…want to be compensated with..
10k in cash right now or 10k worth in bitcoin ???”
Busta’s embrace of the king crypto appears to have started in July when he watched the B Word Conference featuring Tesla CEO Elon Musk, Twitter chief Jack Dorsey, and hedge fund titan Cathie Wood. According to the music mogul, he was completely sold on the world’s most popular cryptocurrency and soon became curious about the leading smart contract platform Ethereum (ETH).

Moving quickly after catching the crypto bug, Busta also became interested in non-fungible tokens (NFTs). He’s already been named as an ambassador for The HUSL, a platform that connects artists to their fans through NFTs.
Busta joins a slew of music artists getting into the crypto space. In March, indie rock band Kings of Leon became the first music group to release an album as an NFT. Earlier this year, rapper and singer Akon announced he was attempting to build his own smart cities in Uganda and Senegal powered by his own “Akoin” crypto.
