Rap legend Snoop Dogg and Cardano-based NFT project Clay Nation have unveiled a new NFT collection called “Snoop Dogg, Gin & Juice,” part of “Icons by Clay Nation.”
Back in April last year, Snoop Dogg announced his partnership with Clay Nation, a marketplace for collectible Cardano NFTs. The rapper caused a stir in the crypto community with the announcement.
The NFT artwork was created in collaboration with Champ Medici, the son of Snoop Dogg. Each NFT offers its users rare access to unreleased music by the artist and other limited edition merchandise. Snoop Dogg’s new NFTs on Cardano were announced yesterday via Twitter and are available now.

Snoop Dogg And His Son Are Crypto And Cardano OGs
Last September, Champ Medici released the rap album “Clay Nation Vol.1,” which included three songs about Cardano and its cryptocurrency ADA, available exclusively to holders of Baked Nation NFTs.
Baked Nation was a collaboration between Clay Nation, Champ Medici and Snoop Dogg in virtual land and clay animation. Three original and previously unreleased tracks, “Manifest,” “Lil Flex’n” and “ADA Dreams,” were added to the metadata of the Baked Nation pitch NFTs. The NFTs were first released in April last year.
In addition to exclusive access to the three tracks, Baked Nation NFT holders also received full commercial rights to the music. Medici, like his father Snoop Dogg, is a big fan of the Cardano project.
The latter has already worked with Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson on some how-to videos. On the song, “ADA Dreams,” the hip-hop legend’s son raps about his dreams of getting rich with ADA.
For Snoop Dogg, this is not the first time he has participated in a crypto project. The OG rapper is a well-known collector of the Bored Ape Yacht Club and repeatedly showed his support for Dogecoin along with Elon Musk.
But that’s just part of his personal history and involvement in the crypto world. Snoop also owns digital land in the sandbox metaverse, among other things.
Remarkably, Clay Nation announced one month ago that it will be the Cardano-based project that will be integrated into The Sandbox Game to further drive interoperability on the Web3. The experience is being built in collaboration with Smobler Studios, a Singapore-based creative agency.
Enter The Sandbox 🪨
Clay Nation will become the first @Cardano project to be integrated in @TheSandboxGame – pushing interoperability even further in #Web3
The experience will be created in collaboration with @smoblerstudios.
Stay tuned for more. pic.twitter.com/kzdSsUyKpW

ADA Price Remains In Bearish Territory
At press time, the ADA price was at $0.3451 and struggling to break above key resistance at $0.3539. After the ADA price was rejected at the 200-day Exponential Moving Average (EMA) on February 15, ADA is in strong bearish territory. A break above the 200-day EMA at $0.40 would be a second step to flip the price sentiment on ADA.
