$ADA: American Rapper Soulja Boy Interested in Cardano NFTs

Influential American rapper and record producer DeAndre Cortez Way, aka Soulja Boy, seems to be excited by Cardano-powered NFTs.

In October 2018, he included a song called Bitcoin in the Young Draco album; in this track, he mentions buying Bitcoin at $6,000, and owning both $BTC and $LTC.

Currently, on NFT marketplace OpenSea, which he joined in April 2021, he has a super exclusive collectible called Crank That for sale. The current price is 5 ETH, and the sale ends on June 12.
