The Hip Hop industry has long been obsessed with money. From Jay-Z to Birdman, making money has been a theme throughout. Much of this, is simply the acknowledgement that money makes the world go round; a clairvoyant observation. It is this observation that makes cryptocurrency and Hip-Hop a perfect match.

What’s prompting this new collective behavior? Tech This Out "Live" will examine how cryptocurrency and blockchain technology is shaping the future of music and the world around us.
