Snoop Dogg has been the most vocal proponent of cryptocurrency in Hip Hop, saying in February that as the new owner of Death Row Records, he will transform the business into the first-ever NFT label.
During a chat with Weinbach Media CEO Will Weinbach, he revealed, “Death Row will be an NFT label.” “We’ll be releasing artists via the metaverse.” I want to be the first major in the metaverse, just like we shattered the business by becoming the first independent to be major.”
Snoop Dogg dropping NFTs one by one
Snoop Dogg appears to be getting much more involved in the NFT now. MakersPlace, dubbed “the foremost marketplace for unique and original digital artworks,” revealed on Tuesday (March 15) that they’ll be collaborating with the iconic West Coast rapper for a big NFT collaboration dubbed SUPERCUZZ.
Original artwork created by BossLogic for the NFT collection displays animated comic book covers portraying Snoop Dogg as a famous superhero.
SUPERCUZZ, a flying superhero born in the streets of “Angel City,” is played by Snoop Dogg. Snoop is a “self-made crypto-trillionaire” by day, but SUPERCUZZ at night, “smoking the forces of evil and filtering out criminality,” according to the press release.
Snoop’s son, Cordell Broadus, was in charge of the creative direction for the five covers. Snoop Dogg will provide unique speech animations for the NFT drop, as well as five visual stills.
In a statement, MakersPlace CEO Craig Palmer stated, “Snoop Dogg and BossLogic are two legendary figures in their respective professions and are both pioneers in the NFT area.”
“It’s an honor for us to host the launch of the SUPERCUZZ collection on MakersPlace and provide art fans with the opportunity to purchase NFTs from their favorite makers.”
The NFTs will be released at 3:30 p.m. PDT on Thursday, March 17. You can read more about the drop on the MakersPlace website.
Snoop’s continued support in the NFT space has been evident on Twitter. He continues to grow as one of the significant powerhouses and creators in the NFT space. It will definitely lure other artists into jumping on the bandwagon.
