[Short #35] Kanye West


Kanye West. Love him or hate him, he’s an icon, a mogul, a multi-disciplinary visionary.

And yup, you guessed it. Ye is getting into NFTs.

Wait, didn’t he make a statement that he isn’t doing NFTs?

Why yes he did, back in January.

*Note: Kanye deleted all his IG posts (assuming a protective measure on his end?) due to his account being suspended in March for a policy violation. Hence the screenshot.

Well, it’s May now and this popped up.

Kanye West has filed 17 new trademark applications around his YEEZUS name. The filings indicate an intent to launch YEEZUS-branded amusement parks, NFT's, toys and more. 👇 #KanyeWest

Well it looks like Yeezy is looking to expand his influence from radio waves and sneakers into…everywhere?

Wait a second, “Block-chain based currencies and non-fungible tokens”? What happened to “Do not ask me to do a fucking NFT?” Well it is “later”…😂

As I’ve shared before, the purveyors of culture are leading the way in Web3. Kanye doesn’t fit just one of the categories I mentioned, he checks all of them.

Content Creator ✅

Music ✅

Fashion ✅

Art ✅ Kanye embodies art in numerous ways, but did you know he was also an award-winning teenage artist?

Sports ✅ Heard of Donda Sports?

It might be a while before we see Kanye NFTs, but if he can change his mind about NFTs, other naysayers can too.

See you tomorrow, it’s truly never a dull day in this space 😵
