Cardano-powered NFTs appear to be appealing to influential American artist and record producer DeAndre Cortez Way, known as “Soulja Boy.”
In October 2018, he included a song called “Bitcoin” in the “Young Draco” album; in this tune, he mentions purchasing Bitcoin for R92 083 and having both $BTC and $LTC.
On Friday (June 3), he once again asked his Twitter followers what Cardano NFTs to buy by sending out a message, which IOG CEO Charles Hoskinson thought was fascinating.
He currently has an “ultra-exclusive collectable” called “Crank That” for sale on NFT marketplace OpenSea, which he joined in April 2021. The current price is 5 ETH, and the sale will finish on June 12.
Snoop Dogg, aka “Cozomo de’ Medici,” and his son, “Champ Medici,” started their association with crypto project Clay Nation in April. The outcome was “Clay Mates,” a Cardano-based NFT collection. Clay Mates are “characters brought to life through stop motion animation and re-homed on the blockchain as CNFTs.”
The first NFT in the Clay Mates Series 1 collection was “Charlie Birdkinson.”
According to NME, on February 14, Snoop, who had earlier that month become the formal owner of iconic hip-hop firm Death Row Records, made the following announcement via a Clubhouse chatroom:
“Just like how we broke the industry when we was the first independent to be major, I want to be the first major in the metaverse so Death Row will be an NFT label.“
Snoop’s child, Cordell Broadus, who is particularly interested in crypto and the metaverse, tweeted on May 31 that he believes in the Cardano community:
”You can hate on #ADA as much as YOU want 💫 I believe in Charles & the whole Cardano Community in a whole ✅🦅 music coming soon @claymates 🌵🧡”
