Acclaimed rapper Eminem is launching his own series of NFTs on Sunday through the popular NFT platform Nifty Gateway.
While Eminem is known for dropping beats. This weekend will see the rapper drop some of his own non-fungible tokens (NFTs) instead.
Shady Con set for Sunday 25 April at 6:30 PM ET
The event is titled “Shady Con” and will include original material from Eminem, including original instrumental beats and a set of action figures. The NFT drop will feature open editions, only available for purchase for fifteen minutes.
Digital trading cards and limited edition NFTs will also be up for grabs. There will also be an auction for a limited NFT which includes physical items. These items include EMINEM X CARHARTT JORDAN 4’s, SSLP20 Film Strip Shadow Box signed by Eminem, and a very RARE vinyl print of Eminem’s, “Infinite” album signed by Eminem.
Eminem commented on the NFT event stating he had been an avid collector of all things including baseball cards, toys, and rap albums since he was a kid. ““Not much has changed for me as an adult…I’ve attempted to re-create some of those collections from that time in my life, and I know I’m not alone. I wanted to give this drop the same vibe of, ‘Oh, man I gotta get just that one or maybe even the whole set!’ It’s been a lot of fun coming up with ideas from my own collecting passion” he said.
Eminem fans will be looking to get their hands on one-of-a-kind original collectibles from the rapper. The NFT drop is inspired by Eminem’s own love for collecting.
Rappers enjoying NFT success
Eminem becomes one of many who have already entered the NFT space. With legendary rapper Snoop Dogg having already released his very own NFT series titled “A Journey With The Dogg”. Another notable NFT rapper is Soulja Boy, who sold his tweets as NFTs over a month back already.
The NFT market continues to grow and it is possible that Eminem’s latest NFT offering will collect the artist a decent payday. Most recently, celebrity Paris Hilton sold a set of NFTs for over $1.1 million.
