The self-proclaimed ‘Crocodile of Wall Street’, Heather Rhiannon Morgan, 31, who was granted $3million bail on Wednesday, is also a rapper who performs under the street name Razzlekhan.

‘I’m many things, a rapper, an economist, a journalist, a writer, a CEO, and a dirty, dirty, dirty dirty h*,’ she raps in one of her singles from 2019, Versace Bedouin. 

Morgan’s videos are all on her YouTube page together with various unboxing videos.

The pair were arrested on Tuesday in Manhattan on federal charges of conspiracy to commit money laundering and conspiracy to defraud the United States.

But when Morgan wasn’t allegedly shifting around billions of dollars in the world of cryptocurrency, she was taking to the mic and shooting rap videos. 

One website which decided to wade through all of the footage suggested ‘Laundering billions in Bitcoin may not even be the worst crime of her life.’ 

‘When she’s not reverse-engineering black markets to think of better ways to combat fraud and cybercrime, she enjoys rapping and designing streetwear fashion,’ her Forbes bio states.   

Morgan says that she experiences synesthesia when music can be heard but shapes or colors can be seen.    

Her website explains that ‘Just like her fearless entrepreneurial spirit and hacker mindset, Razz shamelessly explores new frontiers of art.’

Reviews of her rapping don’t present in the most positive light. 

‘Her delivery is tuneless, the bars are cringe and the accompanying music video isn’t much better,’ declared Engadget. 

In one set of lyrics, Morgan can be heard rapping about the scheme she is alleged to have carried out.    

‘Spearfish your password / all your funds transferred,’ she says. 

‘Always be a GOAT, not a god damn sheep,’ she states in another.  

‘Spirit of a revolutionary, power of a dictator / love to be contrary, but I’m fly like a gator,’ the rap continues in the low-budget looking video. 

They don’t get much better in another riff: ‘Yes that was cheesy/at least I’m not sleazy,’ she proclaims as her alter-ego named Razzlekhan.

The August 2016 Bitfinex hack itself was one of the largest crypto heists ever recorded – so massive that news of the theft knocked 20 percent off Bitcoin’s value at the time. 

Lichtenstein and Morgan are thus far not charged directly with perpetrating the hack, but rather with receiving and laundering the stolen funds. The case was filed in a federal court in Washington, D.C.

It was unclear who will be representing the couple in the criminal case and whether they had an attorney to speak on their behalf.

They were due to appear in federal court in Manhattan at 3pm on Tuesday. 

The couple is accused of conspiring to launder 119,754 bitcoin that was stolen, after a hacker attacked Bitfinex and initiated more than 2,000 unauthorized transactions.

Justice Department officials said the transactions at the time were valued at $71 million in Bitcoin, but with the rise in the currency’s value, it is now valued at over $4.5 billion.

‘As the complaint alleges, the FBI and federal prosecutors were able to trace the movement of Bitcoin from this hack,’ said Matthew Graves, the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia.

He added that the money moved through a major darknet exchange tied to a host of crimes, as well as cryptocurrency addresses tied to child sexual abuse materials.

Lichtenstein and Morgan are facing charges of conspiring to commit money laundering, as well as to defraud the United States.

Prosecutors said on Tuesday the illegal proceeds were spent on a variety of things, from gold and non-fungible tokens to ‘absolutely mundane things such as purchasing a Walmart gift card for $500.’

Bitfinex said in a statement that it was to working with the Department of Justice to ‘establish our rights to a return of the stolen bitcoin.’

‘We have been cooperating extensively with the DOJ since its investigation began and will continue to do so,’ the company said. 

Bitfinex said it intends to provide further updates on its efforts to obtain a return of the stolen bitcoin as and when those updates are available. 

Tuesday’s criminal complaint came more than four months after Monaco announced the department was launching a new National Cryptocurrency Enforcement Team, which is comprised of a mix of anti-money laundering and cybersecurity experts.

Cyber criminals who attack companies, municipalities and individuals with ransomware often demand payment in the form of cryptocurrency.

In one high-profile example last year, hackers caused a widespread gas shortage on the U.S. East Coast when by using encryption software called DarkSide to launch a cyber attack on the Colonial Pipeline.

The Justice Department later recovered some $2.3 million in cryptocurrency ransom that Colonial paid to the hackers.

Cases like these demonstrate that the Justice Department ‘can follow money across the blockchain, just as we have always followed it within the traditional financial system,’ said Kenneth Polite, assistant attorney general of the department’s Criminal Division. 

Justice Department officials say that though the proliferation of cryptocurrency and virtual currency exchanges represent innovation, the trend has also been accompanied by money laundering, ransomware and other crimes

‘Toda’´s arrests, and the Department’s largest financial seizure ever, show that cryptocurrency is not a safe haven for criminals,’ Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco said in a statement. 

‘In a futile effort to maintain digital anonymity, the defendants laundered stolen funds through a labyrinth of cryptocurrency transactions. Thanks to the meticulous work of law enforcement, the department once again showed how it can and will follow the money, no matter the form it takes.’
