Earlier today, the Department of Justice announced the arrest of Ilya Lichtenstein and Heather Morgan, who allegedly attempted to launder more than 25,000 Bitcoins that were stolen as part of the 2016 hack of Hong Kong cryptocurrency exchange Bitfinex. What wasn’t clear to us at the time was that an even bigger crime had taken place on Morgan’s social media pages: her rap career.
Identified by NBC reporter Kevin Collier, Morgan – who introduced himself under the alias Razzlekhan – apparently spent all the time he was allegedly not moving around $3.6 billion in cryptocurrencies recording rap videos, leaving precious little bandwidth. to really learn to write or play music in an enjoyable way. in it YouTube pagecan find Morgan’s rap videos scattered between unboxing clips and a review of 13 different types of aluminium-free deodorant. Morgan, the self-proclaimed “Crocodile of Wall Street”, States that she experiences synesthesia, which results in “art” that “often resembles something between an acid trip and a delicious nightmare”.
We implore you to form your own opinion:
“Cutthroat Country,” embedded above, provides an overview of Morgan’s many talents as a rapper. His delivery is off-key, the bars are creepy, and the accompanying music video isn’t much better. But the best part is that Morgan apparently gets involved in the exact money laundering scheme she is accused of carrying out. “Spearfish your password / all your transferred funds,” she says in the 2:36 song tag.
But perhaps his masterpiece is “Versace Bedouin,” a “rap anthem for misfits and weirdos”:
“Always be a GOAT, not a damn sheep,” she sings at the beginning of the song. “Spirit of a revolutionary, power of a dictator/love to be contrary, but I fly like an alligator,” she later says. What’s striking about both videos are the low-budget production values displayed. Morgan and her husband allegedly laundered billions of dollars in Bitcoin, and yet it looks like they shot the clips on a tight budget.
We could say more about the videos, but we think YouTube user Gudi said it best. “Man could not allow so much talent to roam the streets. TO TEAR APART.” Morgan and Lichtenstein face money laundering and conspiracy charges. If convicted, they face up to 25 years in prison.
