Snoop Dogg Releases 'Supercuzz' Comic Book Inspired NFT Collection



In contrast to Tyler, The Creator and Polo G, Snoop Dogg has been the cryptocurrency's biggest supporter, announcing in February that as the new owner of Death Row Records, he would turn the label into the first-ever NFT record label.


“Death Row will be an NFT label,” he announced. “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.”



Snoop Dogg seems to be getting even more involved in the NFT game.


The crypto marketplace MakersPlace, described as "the premier marketplace for rare and authentic digital artworks," announced on Tuesday (March 15) that they are partnering with the legendary rapper for a massive NFT collaboration called SUPERCUZZ. Snoop Dogg is portrayed as a superhero in the original artwork designed by BossLogic for the NFT collection.


Cordell Broadus, Snoop's son, handled the creative direction of the five creative covers. SUPERCUZZ is a flying superhero born in the streets of "Angel City." Snoop is a crypto-trillionaire by day, but by night he's SUPERCUZZ, weeding out crime. The NFT drop will also consist of unique voice animations created by Snoop Dogg as well as five graphic stills.


“Snoop Dogg and BossLogic are two iconic forces in their respective crafts and are both pioneers in the NFT space,” MakersPlace CEO Craig Palmer said in a statement. “We’re honored to host the release of SUPERCUZZ collection on MakersPlace and give art enthusiasts accessibility in purchasing NFT’s from their favorite creators.”


NFTs will be released on Thursday (March 17) at 3:30 p.m. PDT. Check out the covers below, and visit MakersPlace to learn more about the project.
