Remember “Ferrari Boyz?” Well, it’s been over a decade (I know!) since the album dropped, and you’re probably wondering, “What happened to Waka Flocka Flame?” Since 2020, Waka Flocka Flame and business partner Stally have been running Satoshi Art, an education-driven NFT marketplace aimed to empower “digital artists by creating opportunities for them to fairly monetize their art.”
NFT stands for non-fungible token. It’s basically a digital asset representing real-world objects—such as art, music, and videos—that are traded online, most popularly with cryptocurrency. While NFTs have been around since 2014, they’re rapidly growing in popularity.
With everything being online nowadays, it’s no surprise that artists are hopping onto this NFT art trend and wanting to do it the right way. So, Waka Flocka Flame and his partner have stepped forward as artistic business leaders in the NFT marketplace with the launch of Satoshi Art: a minority-owned NFT marketplace.
How could Satoshi Art help artists?
The slogan for Satoshi Art is simple: It’s made for the artist by the artist. The company’s mission is to teach regular people the ins and outs of this new, fast-growing, digital space. They take special pride in providing NFT financial literacy to their clients in a one-on-one setting. We all know learning can be difficult when you’re just another number in a large class. But lucky for us, Satoshi Art goes beyond all of that: They want to know your name and help you safely share your name across the digital art world.
NFT is not limited to just music, and neither is Satoshi Art; they’re open to accepting any and every artist who has a story to tell and a drive for success.
As Waka Flocka Flame put so brilliantly, “It is easy enough to learn, but you’ve got to want it,” he said. “It’s not fake it ‘til you make it but make it and never fake it!”
