“I’m fully not into it,” Tyler continued, “because you can’t NFT me looking at you in real life right now… I like tangible things.” The comments reflect a similar statement from Kanye West, who in February posted an Instagram statement reading “Stop asking me to do NFTs… I make music and products in the real world.”

Before admitting to a certain degree of ignorance surrounding NFTs and their function, Tyler excoriated NFTs as relatively soulless compared with IRL experiences such as hikes and driving 40 minutes for a donut. “What the fuck is an NFT, bro, if I’m really outside?” he said. “It’s just a dick-swinging contest, like, ‘Look, I bought a picture of a monkey?’… none of the examples I’ve seen is like beautiful art. It’s a fucking monkey in a Supreme hoodie.”
