The first musical artist of his stature to be involved in creating a web3 studio from the ground up, Miguel represents an exciting new opportunity for top talent and brands to supercharge value to their fan bases by leveraging technologies and platforms such as Non-Fungible-Tokens (NFTs), Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs), and metaverse worlds. As T3MP0's creative director, Miguel will extend his extensive collaboration history into partnering with the world's biggest talent and brands in the web3 space.
"We are very excited to support Miguel's creative vision for the web3 space and the future of creator-direct-to-fan communities," said Roger Chabra, T3MP0 Founder & CEO. "Miguel is a true 'artist's artist,' who is consistently collaborating and pushing the boundaries of what is possible in the arts, fashion and technology worlds. Since joining T3MP0, Miguel has helped us evolve from a nascent idea into a world-class team and technology platform. We believe strongly that specialized, community-focused studios like ours, are critical pieces of the web3 ecosystem, providing a consistent flow of innovative content & experiences to the top digital marketplaces, platforms and metaverses."
A featured speaker during VeeCon 2022, during his one-on-one with its founder Gary Vaynerchuk, Miguel announced his first project as T3MP0's creative director–S1C (Schedule 1 Concepts).

Over the last decade, Miguel has established himself as a consummate artist who is unafraid to follow his creative impulses, wherever they may lead him. His Grammy-winning "Adorn" was RIAA certified 2x Platinum and is just one of his 12 songs to hit the Billboard Hot 100. As the recipient of 12 Grammy nominations, it's no surprise Miguel's last three albums debuted at #1 on Billboard's R&B Albums Chart. In 2015, his second studio album "Wildheart", debuted at #2 on Billboard's Top 200 albums. In 2017, this was then followed up by his third studio album "War & Leisure'', which was released to further acclaim. Boasting a resume full of solo hits, as well as collaborations with Dua Lipa, Kendrick Lamar, Alicia Keys, Usher, Calvin Harris, J. Cole, Travis Scott and A$AP Rocky, among others, Miguel has proven himself to be one of music's most sonic visionaries.
