Gala Music revealed a teaser video of Mount Westmore dropping its debut album in the form of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) on its platform. The hip-hop legend group Mount Westmore is a supergroup consisting of four California-based rappers Snoop Dogg, E-40, Too Short, and Ice Cube.
Mount Westmore was established in December 2020. According to a news blog by Stereogum, Too Short said that the group had recorded 50 songs. The project also includes rapper/producer Dr. Dre. The group dropped their first single “Big Subwoofer” in October, which now has more than 22 million views on YouTube.
Last February, Gala Games announced its partnership with Snoop Dogg to launch its Web 3.0-focused music platform named Gala Music. Labeled as the “first decentralized record company,” Gala Music also introduced the “Listen-to-Earn” concept. This is where holders of Gala Nodes earn tokens for hosting music on the node.
Gala Music Nodes function as a jukebox that the whole world can access. It enables music streaming of NFT tracks on the platform. At the time of writing, the music nodes are currently sold out. The Gala Music website described how if functions in a statement:
“Each node can host music NFTs, which may then be accessed through the network, rewarding both the operator of the node who hosts the track as well as the NFT owner and artist for each listen. This system not only rewards NFT owners and hosting node operators for supporting the ecosystem, but gives the largest portion of rewards directly to the artist themselves.”
Node owners must purchase their own NFTs in order to stream. However, in the future, there will be an option for node owners to offer their music nodes to NFT holders and share profit.
