Each Bored Ape is programmatically generated from over 170 possible traits, including expression, headwear, clothing, and color. BAYC #9797 is no exception, earning follows from the likes of GaryV, Rich the Kid, and Olympians as well as legions of fans who are now dressing up like Jimbos.
Jimbo had this to say about his collaboration with Reo Cragun and Clear Eyes, “Ever since I was born in the Metaverse, I fell in love with Reo’s music. We became friends on social media, met up, and started cooking instantly. He introduced me to Clear Eyes and it was like jelly finding bread and peanut butter. We just ended up making a banger.”
