Over the past year, Snoop Dogg and his son Cordell Broadus have become increasingly focused on developing the music NFT scene and metaverse. Snoop Dogg and Cordell Broadus are both the owners of Bored Ape Yacht Club NFTs and they are also investors in Yuga Labs (creator of BAYC). BAYC is the most successful collection of 10,000 unique NFTs based on the Ethereum blockchain. BAYC NFTs are an exclusive asset in the growing metaverse. In September 2022, one Bored Ape NFT was sold for US$1.2 million. Other influential Bored Ape celebrity owners include Eminem, Madonna, and Stephen Curry.
Snoop Dogg has featured the metaverse in several music videos, and he hosted a virtual concert in the Sandbox. This year the Sandbox developed a collection called the Doggies, which are Snoop Doggs playable in the Sandbox. Each Snoop is completely unique and hand-crafted from over 150 traits. The Doggies sold out quickly, but they are still available to be seen on OpenSea.
During this upcoming F1 weekend Snoop Dogg and his son are participating in a NFT art collection together in Singapore. This is the first time that the father-and-son duo will showcase their NFT collection to the world. This NFT Gallery tour will begin on September 30 and will end on October 2, which coincides with Asia’s crypto conference TOKEN2049 and the Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix 2022.
The Champ Medici x Dr. Bombay NFT Gallery, presented by BCA Gallery and OKX NFT, will be open for three days at The Mandala Club Singapore, Level 1. There will be an exclusive tour for VIP guests and media on September 30, followed by a public exhibition on October 1-2, from 11 AM to 9 PM.
Gallery visitors will also have the opportunity to view other prized NFT collections such as CryptoPunks, World of Women, Azuki, Moonbirds, Doggies, Theirsverse, Clay Nation, as well as BCA Labs’ decentralized curation utility–P01NT.
“I’m excited to share what my father and myself have been collecting in the Web3 all these years. It’s been great expanding our art pieces from oil paintings to photographs and now in the format of NFT art. We want to support these creators as much as we can. Through our gallery, the public will learn more about what we do in Web3, what excites us, why we continue to invest in it so much, and hopefully, how the world will be in a better and fairer place for the next generation of creators,” said Cordell Broadus.
“These rare collections from Snoop Dogg and Cordell Broadus impressed me for being so precious as well as displaying their distinctive style. It is an honor to exhibit their art pieces with a timeline highlighting significant events in the Web3 world and to present the next-generation NFT Gallery. Champ Medici and his team strike me as ardent advocates of the power of women, which is another major theme of this exhibition, with a number of outstanding NFT collections to be displayed in our Gallery,” said Sun Bohan, co-founder of BCA Gallery.
The newly formed Snoop Geek Squad will attend, as well as hip hop mogul Russell Simmons, top NFT personality Irene Zhao, and more. The NFT gallery is specially supported by Zonff Partners (a venture capital firm that invests in seed to late-stage technology companies) and co-produced with Cordell’s business partner, Gushcloud International (a Singaporean headquartered digital talent and media company). It is hosted by BCA Gallery, the world’s first international gallery focused on NFT art, in partnership with OKX NFT Marketplace.
“We are excited to be part of this once in a lifetime opportunity. It will be exciting for anyone interested in art to see up close and personal the collections of such legends like Snoop Dogg and Cordell Broadus. Web3 is really the future of the internet so we encourage everyone to visit the gallery, so they can get immersed in a space filled with art and be more familiar with the world of NFTs,” said Joanne Liew, Head of Content and Studios for Gushcloud.
