Cream Capital is the name of Wu-Tang Clan’s Ghostface Killah's new project, but it’s not the title of his next album or mixtape. It’s actually the name of a new cryptocurrency company he co-founded.
The New York lyricist is the latest celeb to get into the cryptocurrency game, following Paris Hilton, The Game, Floyd Mayweather and Jamie Foxx, who recently launched the free cryptocurrency exchange Cobinhood.
The name of Foxx’s company is clearly a play on the name Robin Hood, but it’s not clear if it has personal meaning to him. Cream Capital, on the other hand, is taken from Wu-Tang’s classic single “C.R.E.A.M."
CNBC reports that the firm will raise money through an initial coin offering (ICO), a way startups raise funds by selling percentages of the new currency to investors.
Ghost grew to fame when the Wu-Tang Clan’s Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) hit the streets, and became an even bigger star after releasing solo albums including Ironman, Supreme Clientele, Bulletproof Wallets and Apollo Kids.
When the rapper will drop a new solo project is currently unknown, since he may be busy raising funds for Cream Capital, but he did contribute to Wu-Tang’s new album The Saga Continues, due out on Oct. 13.
