According to the announcement, Timbaland, who acquired a Bored Ape NFT, and his partners “plan on disrupting the music business again with this new venture similar to how Verzuz and Beatclub have.”
In a statement, Timbaland said, “We’ve built a new entertainment platform in the metaverse that puts creative control and long-term ownership back in the hands of artists, a concept that is incredibly important to us.”Jem Aswad, Variety
