As celebrities begin to hop on the NFT bandwagon, Kanye West made it clear he won’t be joining — at least not anytime soon.

On Monday, the Donda rapper took to social media to respond to those asking him to make NFTs, which stands for non-fungible tokens and is a digital asset that belongs to the buyer alone. 

“STOP ASKING ME TO DO NFT’s I’M NOT FINNA CO-SIGN … FOR NOW I’M NOT ON THAT WAVE I MAKE MUSIC AND PRODUCTS IN THE REAL WORLD,” Kanye captioned an Instagram post

The post itself contained a letter which read, “My focus is on building real products in the real world real food real clothes real shelter do not ask me to do a f****** NFT.”

Kanye signed the note “Ye” and added, “Ask me later.”

So maybe the Yeezy founder will eventually hop on the NFT train — just not right now.
