“Do not ask me to do a f**king NFT,” he added in the handwritten statement.
In a caption accompanying the image of the note, Ye added: “For now I’m not on that wave. I make music and products in the real world.”
NFTs have completely transformed these digital artists’ lives
Outside of art, a digital NFT house sold for $500,000 and the first-ever tweet by Twitter founder Jack Dorsey fetched $2.9 million.
Last year, model Emily Ratajkowski sold an NFT photo of herself titled “Buying Myself Back: A Model for Redistribution” via Christie’s auction, joining a growing list of celebrities including Grimes, Ja Rule and Lindsay Lohan who have jumped on the digital token bandwagon. But not Ye. He will not be joining in.
For those disappointed by his lack of interest in NFTs, he did offer a glimmer of hope: “Ye. Ask me later,” he signed off on Instagram.
