Rapper Snoop Dogg has bought two of the nonfungible tokens created by former Barclays Plc trader Ovie Faruq.

The tokens, part of a collection called “rektguy,” were bought by Snoop Dogg on May 28, Faruq said. Snoop Dogg didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment, though the two NFTs are now listed on a verified account for Snoop Dogg’s Death Row Records on NFT platform opensea.io. Snoop Dogg also tweeted “Got #Rekt” on the day with an image of the NFT and made it his profile picture on Twitter.
