Atlanta, GA[c] – November 12th, 2021 – Today, multi-platinum Atlanta-based artist and entrepreneur, Money Man, releases cryptocurrency focused album Blockchain and visuals to “LLC” featuring Moneybagg Yo via Black Circle and EMPIRE, executively produced by CEO & Founder Ghazi. Coinciding with the release, Money Man simultaneously launched a unique NFT collection of the album trailer after recently receiving his entire 7-figure advance in Bitcoin via Cash App from EMPIRE’s Founder & CEO Ghazi as an early adopter on the label and first artist to receive payment in cryptocurrency.


Blockchain opens with “Numb to the Pain” introducing Money Man’s rise from nothing and enduring the pain he was blinded by with a past love interest. Shifting his focus on his self-worth with “LLC” featuring Moneybagg Yo, he touches on his assets and being a self-made boss describing himself as “a walking business” making his way to the top. Transitioning into “Blockchain,” Money Man showcases the luxuries and values in crypto investments. Taking it down with smooth acoustics over a heavy bass flow, “No Fema” featuring Jackboy touches on the extremities of past struggles and fantasizing a successful lifestyle to survive. He then showcases the values of digital currency in “Worthless” featuring Yung Bleu being ahead of the game of investing while others waste their money on materialistic items. Money Man wraps up Blockchain with “Transform” shedding light on his past struggles and his strategic focus on digital investments while providing insight on his evolution to stardom and preaching for authenticity in the world.


Launched on Thursday, November 11 at 9pm PST, Money Man and EMPIRE released a unique NFT collection of the Blockchain album trailer[d] priced at .0333 ethereum (roughly $150). Derived from and designed by the EMPIRE/Money Man team, the first 100 tokens were eligible for a free hoodie.[e][f] All 500 token holders received a 25% merch discount at Money Man’s merch store.



Rapper Money Man has emerged as one of the most talked about artists out of Atlanta in recent years. Through his relentless release strategy and fierce message of entrepreneurship and self-worth, Money Man has carved his own lane independently. Money Man first made waves when he bought himself out of his previous contract with his earnings from early investments in Bitcoin, to then partner his label with independent label EMPIRE. Then, with a bombardment of music that marries street culture to self sustainability topics – such as real estate, farming, technology, the stock market and more – Money Man emerged as a near mythical artist that continues to share his wealth of knowledge with his fans.


After hundreds of millions of streams, Money Man has now captured the attention of his peers with features from Lil Baby, Jackboy, YFN Lucci and more. His latest project, Epidemic, features RIAA-certified Platinum track “24” – a tribute to the late Kobe Bryant – that has now amassed millions of streams and a remix with Lil Baby.
