Ape-In Productions (AIP) is a ground-breaking, artist-owned entertainment company and virtual community that will amplify, launch, and promote Bored Apes as successful music artists in the metaverse. AIP was co-founded by Grammy award-winning superproducer and music legend Timbaland and several other members of the Bored Ape Yacht Club community as a new platform for entertainment in the metaverse era, with the goal of discovering and amplifying music artists while unlocking nascent creative content through premium NFTs.
Beneath the glitz, AIP is simply a group of BAYC holders and their friends who share a common love of music, NFTs, and doing dope shit. They have leveraged their Apes, creativity, connections, and expertise to create this entity that has the potential to disrupt the entire music industry. This is about something so much greater than pixels and JPEGs.
The AIP roster will feature a select group of Bored Apes who will release original music and animation in the metaverse as NFTs, bringing a static medium to life. Timbaland, his company Beatclub, and other creators will be developing music for the AIP’s first set of releases, and have already brought several incredibly talented artists into the fold. By acquiring the related NFTs, collectors will then also gain access to a host of community building events, virtual studio sessions, merchandise, and animated concerts performed by AIP’s roster in the Bored Ape Yacht Club world.
