Hip-Hop Is Blowing Up In The NFT Market


Hip Hop is breaking into the world of cryptocurrency with the trending NFT, as Bobby Shmurda, and A$AP Rocky, becoming the latest rap stars to announce NFT drops.

Following The Weekend, Post Malone, Rico Nasty, and Snoop Dogg, Curren$y’s 420 NFT-only Financial District EP hit the internet, marrying the worlds of digital art and Hip Hop music with a three-day, three-tiered auction.

Utilizing Minecro Inc.’s blockchain technology, Bobby Shmurda is offering fans who own $SHRUCOINS to purchase ticket to his concerts with Rowdy Rebel. Minecro Inc. specializes in the research, production, and distribution of psilocybin mushroom products.

A$AP Rocky teamed up with cryptocurrency marketplace Nifty Gateway to auction his first NFT collection. The collection will feature items from A$AP Rocky’s AWGE Shopping network. Rocky shared a promotional video featuring images of the AWGE Shopping Network items.

NFT’s are like collectible sports cards and essentially serve as a digital certificate of authenticity for “an object, real or virtual,”. Artists are utilizing NFT’s for virtual concert experiences like Bobby Shmurda’s, or releasing collectible tokens like Snoop Dogg’s A Journey With The Dogg, in addition to other applications.

Jeezy officially joined the NFT world, as partnered with Liquid Avatar Technologies to sell his snowman logo.

Jeezy’s logo is being sold in with Liquid Avatar, along with Imagine AR Inc. and DreamView Studios.

“Partnering with Jeezy is an amazing opportunity for Liquid Avatar and Oasis,” said Liquid Avatar CEO David Lucach. “As an artist and a businessman, we know Jeezy is always working to be at the forefront of fan outreach. NFTs have become an innovative way to sell art and engage fans and early adopters in the music industry are now able to jump right into this evolving market and expand their global footprint. Jeezy’s iconic snowman logo and brand is the perfect fit for NFTs and Oasis, and we know his success will draw even more top-level musicians to work with us.”
