From Rapper to White Collar Criminal

I just love that among the 4.5 million dollars this guy basically embezzled, a significant enough portion went to buying soundcloud plays and likes that it bears mentioning in the BBC summary of the crime. I’ll try and find his soundcloud later and see how that worked out for him.

Before that, there are phases with around 100 plays and no comments for tracks and phases with 20k plays…
