Juicy J, the Oscar-winning rapper, took to Twitter to celebrate Ethereum’s recent price recovery. The rapper, known for songs like “Shell Shocked” and “Bounce It,” informed his 2.8 million followers that the price of the second-largest cryptocurrency had increased by about 5%.

Ethereum surpassed the R24 000 mark on Saturday, outperforming the rest of the cryptocurrency market. Juicy J’s most recent tweet demonstrates that celebrities, despite the massive sell-off, are still interested in the cryptocurrency market. Last August, the Oscar-winning rapper hinted at writing a song about Dogecoin, the largest meme cryptocurrency. 

Last August, the Oscar-winning rapper hinted at writing a song about Dogecoin, the largest meme cryptocurrency. His cryptocurrency journey began in December 2020, when the rapper asked his Twitter followers if Bitcoin was worth it. The top cryptocurrency was then entering another major bullish cycle.

Juicy J, who won an Oscar in 2006 as a member of the Three 6 Mafia hip-hop group, is far from the only crypto-friendly rapper. Snoop Dogg and Eminem released a new music video in late June featuring their beloved Bored Ape Yacht Club non-fungible token (NFT) collection. Jay-Z, another well-known American rapper, recently launched a bitcoin literacy project in collaboration with former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.  

50 Cent, who agreed to accept the largest cryptocurrency for his album “Animal Ambition” in 2014, claimed in 2018 that he had become a cryptocurrency millionaire before retracting his claims. Meanwhile, rapper Rick Ross recently went viral after questioning crypto bros’ wealth because they are not ostentatious enough.
