SpecialGuest’s latest collaboration with Spotify is being unveiled at the Brooklyn Museum. Featuring three life-size sculptures, carved with massive robotic arms, of the three top rap artists on the RapCaviar playlist, SZA, Metro Boomin, and 21 Savage.
Spotify approached SpecialGuest with the vision to create a real MoneyPhone for artists and super fans. Holding cash like a phone has been a phenomenon in hip-hop culture; even Jay-Z mentioned it on his latest album. But the stack of cash has never supported a real phone, until now.
Reception a bit fuzzy with Cardi B.

SpecialGuest is doing a panel at SXSW on The Key to Innovation: Creative Problem Making. Learn more and spread the word: http://schedule.sxsw.com/events/PP61328. Creators shouldn’t just solve problems; they should make them. Solutions to existing problems are often derivative. Innovation happens by making problems. To prove our point, we will make and solve a problem on stage, inviting an influential YouTube creator to join us.
SpecialGuest collaborated with Young Gun & Levine/Leavitt "Artist in Residence,” Pablo Delcan, to develop a new visual identity and a baller new website going live today.

Bollywood's King Khan goes ape over Frooti, one of India's top-selling mango-juice drinks, in this ludicrously loopy commercial.
