Tekashi 6ix9ine needs no introduction as he is a very controversial figure in the Hip-Hop world. He has beef with almost every rapper worth mentioning point in time. He was also accused of some very peculiar things as well.
The rapper loves to live a lavish life and show off his riches, even though many fans continue to wonder just how he makes so much money in the first place. This is despite his music not selling all that well.
According to Rolling Stone, the rapper has been out of prison for over a year now and is currently advertising NFTs priced at hundreds of dollars per piece. He claims they are to help several charitable organizations.
Last week, A website titled trollznft.io had surfaced. According to that page, the Trollz NFT collection is a “fan-based” project “made to interact with 6ix9ine’s fans and supporters but also give long term value to holders.” However, there is no proper explanation as to why the tokens would be valuable for fans.
The website specified that all “royalties” will go back to token owners, but it doesn’t specify the type of royalties. Each of the 9,669 tokens costs 2 SOL, which is around $400 at press time. The Trollz team says it will donate $20,000 to five different charities, which is in total $100,000 in total once they sell out.
One of the top five most frequently asked questions regarding this collection, according to its website, is “Is this a scam or rugpull?” The team’s answer is not entirely reassuring: “R U DUMB? No! This is a project in direct correlation with 6ix9ine. He is aware and privy to the inner workings going on behind the scenes. This project is directly influenced by his involvement, so anything promised on TROLLz web/discord will be delivered.” All in all, it certainly does seem like a very shady deal, so fans should be wary before purchasing a token.
