All of it was a deleted tweet. It was a deleted tweet. We wouldn’t know. NFT strategist Just1n.eth, however, brought in another rapper to the discussion. “He needs to link up with Waka Flocka to talk about the NFT collection that he should be looking into!” And Waka Flocka wentDirectly to the BAYC. “Uncle Snoop you need a Ape mane!!! Join the yacht club.” This was Snoop Dogg’s answer:
