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.

Also, Editor's Pick on Creativity http://creativity-online.com/work/spotify-rapcaviar-moneyphone/53201

Cardi B receives an actual money stack phone case 💸😂

The Key to Innovation: Creative Problem Making

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.
