Snoop Dogg, a pioneering hip-hop artist and businessman, believes in Bitcoin, the (blockchain) technology behind the crypto asset and the global connection it creates. The celebrity adds that while he’s not “too caught up in the value of the coin”, he’s been around long enough to “know it’s here to stay”.
Not a fad of the pandemic
In an interview with Vanity Fair, Snoop Dogg, real name Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr., also talks about the potential of the technology and why BTC’s popularity shouldn’t be viewed as a passing fad. He said:
The future is unfolding right before us. I don’t see it as a pandemic fad, the pandemic just put gas on the fire.
When asked if there will ever be a “Snoopcoin”, the hip-hop artist said to the interviewer: “You are damn right.”
Arguments for NFTs
Meanwhile, Snoop Dogg also discussed non-fungible token (NFT) investments and how this should be classified as “the next big thing”. According to Snoop Dogg, NFTs gives him a direct connection to his fans and his community. When advocating for NFTs, the hip-hop star added:
Unlike when you buy one of my records or download one of my songs, I can’t connect with you. You dig? With NFTs I can. I plan to keep engaging with the fans who buy this work of art.
He adds that NFTs “no longer have a platform or intermediary to filter my message”. Instead, fans will receive an original and limited piece by the artist.
In the meantime, Snoop Dogg confirmed the start of his NTF (A Journey with the Dog) on Crypto.com in an interview. The NFT consists of “a speaking portrait of a young Snoop, an original track called” NFT “, a Diamond Blunt, some” Snoop Dogge Coins “and a few other pieces.”
Snoop Dogg is no stranger to the digital asset Bitcoin (BTC) as the rap phenomenon was one of the first hip hop artists to accept BTC for his album. In fact, Bitcoin.com’s news desk featured a number of rap stars who could be crypto millionaires. Snoop Dogg sold copies of his album for 0.3 BTC back in 2013 and said his next album would be “delivered in bitcoin n ‘which comes in a drone”.
