On this episode of “NFT All-Stars,” host Artnome (Jason R. Bailey) is joined by Ed Young, co-founder of The Source magazine and owner of NFT.hiphop, to interview long-time record mogul, entrepreneur and art collector Damon Dash.

Alongside Dash’s background in the record industry as co-founder of Roc-A-Fella Records, he also has extensive experience managing art galleries all over the world. Dash’s time spent working with creators made the challenges – and pitfalls – of the traditional art world apparent to him.

Dash has turned his attention to non-fungible tokens (NFT), where he sees immense potential benefits and opportunities for visual and musical artists. Cutting out the intermediaries often present in artist management can improve an artist’s financial and creative control over their work.

The NFT space continues to explode as more and more uses for NFTs become in use. Big names are recognizing their potential.
