Snoop Dogg’s Vision for Death Row will take the label to into the Metaverse.
Death Row will be an NFT label…We will be putting out artists through the metaverse… Just like we broke the industry when we was the first independent to be major, I want to be the first major in the metaverse.
BODR dropped through blockchain company Gala Games as a stash box. Those who coughed up $5,000 for the NFT version of the album received the entire project, along with three bonus tracks. The rapper said that those who collected the entire project on the blockcahin will be treated to a Death Row chain, BBQ from Warren G, and access to an exclusive concert.
