Press Release

Rockstar Apes NFT by RAG Launches July 4th

Rockstar Apes by the Recording Artists Guild is a collection of 10,000 NFTs living on the Ethereum blockchain. It celebrates 13 years of empowering independent artists.

Rockstar Apes, now on Opensea, was developed by the Recording Artists Guild (RAG), a music association of over 20,000 indie artists/labels, to bring more indie artists on the chain.

 Rockstar Apes, which celebrates the coming together of music and NFTs, pays homage to musical icons from the past, present, and future depicted as Board Apes. Bored Apes, the poster child of NFTs, has been embraced by many of today’s most notable music celebrities, including Justin Beiber, Snoop Dogg, Post Malone, and more. The 10,000 NFT collection of Rockstar Apes features artists like Willie Nelson, Tupac, Michael Jackson, Elton John, and more, all distinguishable by their iconic trademark features.

 RAG, which was founded in 2009, has always sought to empower independent artists by helping them thrive in the ever-evolving music industry. Since RAG’s inception, the primary music monetization has shifted from downloads to streams. We believe the biggest opportunity for indie artists will be NFTs. We hope that Rockstar Apes will encourage more artists to create a crypto wallet, create music NFTs, and thus create new ways to engage with their fans, delivering more value for all parties.

 Over the years RAG has not only worked with thousands of indie artists but also major acts like Sean, P Diddy, Combs, Skylar Grey, Matt Sorum, Warren G, and many others. RAG has facilitated song placements for many of its members in films with huge stars, including Robert DeNiro, and 50 Cent. Forest Whitaker, Bruce Willis, and more.

 The foundation of what RAG offers its members includes tools to help further their careers and resources to protect their personal and professional interests. The RAG members are featured in its digital magazine, are eligible for the RAG Awards, receive free medical benefits, and much more. 

 Byron Booker, Founder and Chairman of RAG, has written, produced, and or executive produced records featuring Ray J, FloRida, Chris Brown, Brandy, Snoop Dogg, and others. He has also secured 7 figure recording and publishing deals with Sony ATV and Universal Music. Not only is Byron a seasoned music executive, but he’s also been a thought leader in the blockchain and NFT space for years, having spoken at NFT.NYC, Audio Fest, Salesforce, DEW Expo, and other conferences.

 As stated on the roadmap, Rockstar Apes holders will receive VIP access to “Ape Shht”, a series of NFT music events in the metaverse and IRL. Musical guests will be tapped from RAG’s vast roster of artists. Ape holders will get a free RAG membership that they can use or gift. These items alone far surpass the .08 ETH cost of a Rockstar APE cost.
