A community comprised of the dopest venture capitalists, LPs, founders, fans, and artists
And get a glimpse into the future of community ownership and deeper creative connections
DMV is an episodic visual album about a venture capitalist that has an existential crisis and starts his own fund. It uses hip hop to move the story forward and real VCs and tech founders contribute verses and beats. DMV's VC protagonist (Roy/ SPIDR) used to work at the most successful venture firm of all time. The firm came to prominence via their "Seven Deadly Sins" thesis, and the team of 7, effectively bet on the most evil traits of humankind, earning unprecedented returns in the technology industry. Roy is visited by Jesus and his sidekick Yor one day and is condemned to hell unless he starts betting on the good of humankind. With that, Roy leaves his firm and starts his own fund: "Dope Millionaire Visionaries." But can Roy still save his soul?

Web2 music artists have to use a myriad of different platforms to connect with fans, which include: Spotify, Instagram, Youtube, Twitter, etc.
The distribution of music has changed drastically over the past 60 years as we've gone from vinyl to cassette to CD to streaming, but the content and experiences themselves have not changed.
The album is a music format that was created in the 60s, and it's still the primary way fans experience an artist's catalog, alongside live shows
Artists don't own any of the music; Fans don't own any of the music
There's a big gap of creators whose problems are not being addressed; Somewhere between Tik Tok/ Instagram, Youtube, and Netflix
Hollywood is inefficient; $1 million is considered low budget
Not that much creative engagement between fan and creator; Most creator collaborations are shallow
Web3 artists will follow an entirely new format to monetize and connect with fans via more immersive experiences enabled by crypto technology. Dope Millionaire Visionaries and BLCK UNICRN is the centralized platform, process, and infrastructure that music artists will follow in Web3
The Trilla is an episodic visual album; Kind of like Michael Jackson's "Thriller," but what if it kept going? (Immersive content built around music)

Real creative collaboration with founders and venture capitalists (verses, beats, NFTs, etc.) (Deeper creative connections experiment)
Build virtual worlds around music content (virtual worlds experiment; virtual land rental maketplace)
