There are a lot of things you could say about Dennis Rodman. One of the more sedate things that The Worm was known for was his colourful choice of hair on the basketball court. Whether it was the Scottie Pippen “33” return tribute, the smiley face, or even just the bright green – he was giving us something iconic on a nightly basis. Having been very active in the crypto space for a while now, Dennis Rodman has recently decided to drop his first-ever NFT collection via OpenSea aptly titled “Rodman’s Barbershop.”
For Rodman’s Barbershop, he has partnered with Jeff Hood and Sophie Watts (behind NFT studio Metacurio) to create a series of 5,000+ NFTs around Rodman’s own bright-coloured hairstyles. For US$175 / AU$233 a pop, you can get your own illustrated silhouette of Rodman with various hair colours and styles.
“We wanted to immortalize Dennis’ fashion sense, style, and bravado and give fans and collectors an opportunity to own one of the many hairstyles that have made Dennis a global icon,” said Hood of the collection.
The Rodman’s Barbershop NFTs will be minted on OpenSea beginning April 11th. As far as concepts for NFTs go, this one does seem like a fun one. Who doesn’t love Dennis Rodman? Imagine going back in time and telling the man that in 30 years he’d be selling his hairstyles as a digital ledger that could be sold and traded over the internet. If there’s anyone that would understand what that meant in 1993 it would probably be Dennis Rodman.
While not much else is known about Rodman’s Barbershop at this stage, you can expect more information about the drop to be shared on Discord, social media, and through the official Rodman’s Barbershop website ahead of its release later this month.
