This week, NFT whale Cozomo de’ Mendici – aka Snoop Dogg – lashed out at NFT users practicing crypto wallet spam by sending jpegs ‘uninvited.’ The rapper also mentioned fake art, and how disrespectful it is towards ‘real artists.’
Snoop Dogg hates his crypto wallet spam
Renowned rapper Snoop Dogg used his pseudonymous Twitter account Cozomo de’ Mendici to attack NFT spammers. More precisely, he clarified that we would never support any collections sent to his crypto wallet ‘uninvited.’
What’s more, Snoop Dogg discussed the recent wave of ‘fake’ NFT art too. The collector insisted on saying that he doesn’t buy ‘any sort of fake ape, fake pepe, or fake punk.’ He also labeled the practice as ‘insulting’ towards NFT artists who put in all the effort into creating original pieces.
Fake art is indeed becoming a real problem in the NFT world. Recently, more and more copies of famous projects like CryptoPunk or the BAYC emerged. Reportedly, many of them are built on layer-2 solution Polygon – unlike their original alternatives, built on Ethereum.
As a result, Snoop Dogg tweeted that he never purchased an NFT on the Polygon Matic chain:
