YG rapper Kynon Dequan Ray Jackson appears to be showing off a daring $30 million stack with Bitcoin (BTC) in his latest music video.

The revelation looks like either an attractive but possibly misguided product placement, as the video prominently features a cold storage device from cryptocurrency wallet provider Ledger. As the Ledger social team immediately shared:

In one scene of the music video for the song “Scared Money” featuring Jay Cole and Moneybagg Yo, YG holds a Ledger wallet next to a smartphone that has a $30.6 million wallet app on the screen. It contains bitcoins.

While the image could be easily faked, rappers are known for flaunting their wealth and success, especially in this song, which focuses on spending money, investing, and wearing half a million dollar jewelry around their necks.

YG is the undisputed champion of BTC, having mentioned owning digital gold in several other songs such as 2018’s Big Bank, as well as in an interview with RollingStone in mid-2021.

During this interview, YG said that he enjoys the ease of owning cryptocurrencies when he can invest his money in the asset class without being distracted from his music career. He drew a comparison to the real estate market, where he had to spend a lot of time working and studying to make it work.

I’m using Bitcoin […] I recently got Ethereum and recently got Dogecoin but I’ve had Bitcoin for about three years […] Bitcoin came out and it was like “what?” Can I just do this and it will happen? He said referring to the increase in asset prices last year.

Earlier today in a Reddit post on the r/Bitcoin Reddit community, users questioned YG’s huge BTC stack, stating “AvoidMyRange” “The chance of all of these values ​​ending in 0 and cents ending in 0.00 is unbelievable and it’s clear that this is a mistake.”

User AKeveryday responded, “It’s fake because it’s not even a mockup of a ledger app.”

Other users saw the music-based fun side of YG’s attack on BTC, as Redditor Lexstell11 counted Big Bank’s lyrics when BTC was worth around $7,000.

In a song by YG Big Bank, he said, “Maybe I can buy her red pants for crypto-3 that will pay for the whole semester…” The song was released on May 25, 2018 when BTC finally hit $7,459. So it is assumed that YG paid $132,000 today for a girls’ semester transfer at what I believe is the University of Phoenix. I think about it a lot.”
