After announcing their brief hiatus from the music world, Curt Cameruci aka Flosstradamus has announced their newest innovative project. The artist known for their boundary-breaking, instantly-recognizable tunes (ie. “Came Up”, “Soundclash”) that paved the way for trap, Floss has delved into a new creative side and has given his fan base, HDYNATION, a whole new idea to rave about -collaborating with multimedia company Blunt Action to deliver to the public the world’s first “smokable” NFT. Behind the idea combines vaporizers and a portable USB device to create what they call the Genesis Device – a true representation of what modern-day art trading can hold.
Floss describes coming up with this idea as “in an era with music and art where I started to feel boxed in and when the NFT space started to open up it felt like I could do anything and the possibilities were endless. I wanted to push the boundaries of the NFT and lead by example of how we can expand this area.”
This art piece can be called a “hybrid” of audiovisual art and is also 420 friendly, where cannabis and Flosstradamus enthusiasts can own an NFT that is both digital and physical, as well as providing mind-altering experiences. Two versions were released: on April 19th, a 4/20 special edition digital art piece was sold for $4.20, appealing to the general public. On April 20th, the collaboration released the limited-edition 3/3 HYDNATION-themed electronic vape, equipped with the rare digital asset. The highest bidder will receive the rarest out of the collection, a chrome-plated “HDY-VAPE” that has the highest-quality smoking technology for THC and CBD users alike.
This never-before-seen technology is a fully immersive “Genesis Experience” that breaks boundaries in how music and art is experienced, which could potentially lead to new and more immersive ways we perceive the world of NFTs.
