The Medici family gained wealth and political power during the 13th century in Florence italy. Beginning in 1434 Cosimo de’ Medici’s support of the arts and humanities turned Florence into the birthplace of the Renaissance. The Medici’s produced four popes (Leo X, Clement VII, Pius IV and Leo XI), and their genes have been mixed into many of Europe’s royal families. The most recent addition to the family is the notorious gin and juice sippin’, blunt smoking, rap genius that is Snoop D. O. double G.
Long story short; Snoop went ahead and claimed on twitter that he is @CozomoMedici… Which is a twitter handle of what used to be an anonymous Crypto promoter. Medici claimed he was going to dox himself and 5 minutes later Snoop dropped his tweet. The legendary rapper is no stranger to crypto and has sold NFT’s in the past. Could this be a prank? Maybe… but that would be pretty lame, and Snoop doesn’t seem like a liar to me and definitely isn’t lame. One thing is for sure, Snoop throwing his celebrity behind NFT’s and crypto is more evidence that this market; despite it’s dips, is deeply in the veins of pop culture investors.
Funny enough; the Medici account on the NFT Platform OpenSea, went ahead and bought a few weed themed NFT’s recently… One of which is a cat flying through a sky full of fireworks trailing a rainbow behind it while smoking a blunt and wearing a marijuana leaf costume… You can’t make this stuff up.
