Snoop Dogg is no stranger to Non-fungible tokens (NFT). The prominent American rapper has helped usher in a new movement in the entertainment industry with his previous run-ins with the non-fungible space. It has now come to light that the “Big Dogg” of the rap game has applied for another NFT/metaverse trademark.

The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) received the application on June 14th, 2022, for UNCLE SNOOP and UNCLE SNOOP’S from Calvin Broadus, the rapper’s legal name.

On June 20, registered trademark lawyer Michael Kondoudis tweeted about the registration, highlighting that it would include apparel, footwear, headgear, virtual cannabis and smoking products, Non-Fungible Token markets, and digital collectibles.

Snoop the “top Dogg” of NFT?

Snoop Dogg is one of the few entertainment figures actively participating in web3 initiatives. Earlier in February, the rapper had launched his “The Doggies” NFT collection of 10,000 playable characters for The Sandbox, conceived and crafted by Snoop himself.

Snoop also revealed that he would launch a dessert establishment with a Bored Apes theme, akin to Bored and Hungry. Dr. Bombay’s Sweet Exploration will be the name of the eatery. It will be affiliated with the Los Angeles-based company Food Fighters Universe, controlled by Andy Nguyen, Kevin Seo, and Phillip Huynh. Moreover, Snoop is also a proud owner of a couple of Apes.

Snoop recently partnered with the Cardano network to create the Clay Nation NFT collection. This partnership added various features to Cardano, including land pitches, unlocking music content, and clay animations.

Although non-fungibles have enabled artists and musicians to flourish outside the industry, to say that the NFT space has dipped would be an understatement. The space has taken a massive hit in 2022 after skyrocketing in popularity and valuation in 2021. The non-fungible token market suffered significant losses while the whole cryptocurrency market collapsed below the $1 trillion mark.
