‘First Day Out’ by Rundown Spaz featuring Kanye West is more than a new hit track that reminds you of the old Kanye; it’s a gateway to how blockchain can legally vibe with the music scene.
A quick click on the link to firstdayout.org in the YouTube description unveils a broader narrative—the birth of the First Day Out Collective ($FDOC). This isn’t your run-of-the-mill music collective; it’s a crypto-powered venture where snagging some $FDOC tokens means you’re buying a piece of the song, letting fans morph into stakeholders and groove to the rhythm of success.
The plot thickens with the track finding a home under a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO), jazzed up by the legal frameworks of the nation of the Joseon Empire. This isn’t just a cool trend; it’s a legal and innovative move aiming to tune up corporate transparency and a community-centric vibe in the music industry, paving the way for reduced barriers to entry in music and increased access to capital for new music and media projects.
Kanye’s feature has stirred up significant chatter across the digital world, adding an extra beat to the buzz around blockchain meeting music. Although the song was released by powerhouse record company Tha Lights Global, who is responsible for the proliferation of artists like Lil Pump among others, some commenters on YouTube appear to think that the verse was performed by AI, with many of them loving it regardless – a testament to Kanye’s lyrical prowess on the track. I speculate that Kanye knew he had to bring it given he was on a track with the young star Rundown Spaz who is getting all the buzz in the hip hop scene.
Either way, the buzz is real. Reactions and discussions are popping up on Instagram and TikTok. The community is digging the blockchain beat the track introduces, making ‘First Day Out’ a hot topic in the blockchain-music convo.
Furthermore, Kanye appears to confirm his boating incident in Italy, in addition to the swipe he takes at Adidas, who recently severed their relationship with him. This has further fueled the virality of this track and movement.
With nearly 15 million views across various platforms, this song is making waves, showcasing what happens when blockchain vibes meet musical notes, giving music ventures a fresh spin.
As ‘First Day Out,’ a title given to a song made by an artist fresh out of prison, resonates worldwide, it’s coincidental, given the regulatory landscape of crypto in other jurisdictions, that it’s as if crypto itself is experiencing its own first day out of prison with Joseon’s endorsement.
