How did Snoop Dogg get into the Boring Ape Yacht Club?
It all comes from a deleted tweet. What did it say? We will not know. However, NFT strategist Just1n.eth brought another rapper into the conversation. “He needs to contact Waka Flocka to talk about the NFT series he should study!” and Waka Flocka went Go directly to BAYC. “Uncle Snoopy, you need an ape mane!!! Join the yacht club.” This is Snoop Dogg’s answer:

But wait… Isn’t Cozomo De’ Medici an alias for Snoop Dogg?
The notorious NFT collector Cozomo De’ Medici once made a publicity stunt that seemed to imply that he was Snoop Dogg. However, since then, the prevailing view is that he is not. Artnet’s .pdf mag about NFT culture, Artnet NFT 30, Break down the story:
“Is Cozomo really Snoop Dogg? It was a rumor that swept the Internet after collectors announced that a celebrity would reveal Cozomo’s true identity (the first person who discovered the announcement won 1 ETH). Only then Snoop Dogg’s The official account said on Twitter: “I am @CozomoMedici. However, subsequent crazy investigations cast doubt on this connection, pointing out that a selfie posted by Cozomo with musician Jason Derulo in Lake Como covered their faces, but did not cover their small white species. Human body.”
If Snoop is Cozomo, he will undoubtedly become the largest celebrity NFT collector. But he is not. Or is it him? After Snoop Dogg announced BAYC, Cozomo wrote on Twitter:
Oh, by the way 😉 https://t.co/zn2ajWZFS4
