Rapper Fetty Wap, born Willie Junior Maxwell II, has gotten into the cannabis game – quite literally.
The artist recently partnered up with social media entrepreneur Branden Hampton, the mind behind popular Instagram accounts like @Money and @Marijuana, to launch GROW.HOUSE, a crypto-generating cannabis farming game.

Think of GROW.HOUSE like a sort of Farmville for weed, but hosted on the blockchain and merged with NTFs. In other words: GROW.HOUSE seeks to educate users about cannabis, cryptocurrencies and decentralized finance (DeFi) in a gamified form. The app features a metaverse (or digital universe) where people can grow cannabis and make money (crypto) off it.
“Honestly, I'd never heard of the crypto world in the cannabis world going together before this,” Fetty utters during an exclusive interview.
“In this game you are digitally growing cannabis, harvesting it, selling it. It’s serious. And there’s real money involved: the GROW Token.
And he goes on: “Within the game, you’ve got communities: you can join a community or you can start a community. You can buy a plot of land and invite your friends. Now, you guys are growing together. You can even cross-breed plants, and get very rare flowers that are worth more than the others and even make your plot more valuable.”
GROW.HOUSE was inspired by a future where users can all live, play, and make a living in the metaverse. Built on Polygon/Matic (Ethereum Layer 2), the platform is faster and cheaper than many similar ones.
