Gunna Spent $300,000 on an NFT and Got It Tattooed



With his recent purchase of the Bored Ape Yacht Club, Gunna is the latest rapper to delve into NFTs.


On Instagram, the Atlanta native stated that he paid $300,000 for the NFT via the MoonPay cryptocurrency network.

“I Bought A @boredapeyachtclub NFT worth 300K No Cap!” Gunna wrote on IG. “His Name is BUTTA Thanks @moonpay!”


Gunna’s Bored Ape, Butta, is clothed in turquoise sunglasses and an ammunition belt, and carries a green kazoo in his mouth.


Adidas, which introduced its own Bored Ape avatar earlier this month, is one of several celebrities and well-known entities entering the NFT arena. A yellow tracksuit, matching bucket hat, and heart-shaped sunglasses are worn by the company’s version. In September, Adidas paid $156,000 for it, or 46 ETH. Adidas is cooperating with the exclusive Bored Ape Yacht Club in addition to selling the NFT.
