Eminem, the hip-hop legend, has revealed that he is entering into the non-fungible token (NFT) collectibles game, as he is auctioning three types of NFTs through Nifty Gateway and each design was created by him.
It has been reported that Eminem is dropping some Slim Shady NFTs for his Stans. The rapper who has sold approximately 130 million records globally and 389 million singles during his career, will now sell blockchain collectible assets.
However, he said that he has been a collector for years and it all started with cassette tapes. The well-known hip-hop star is three types of animated NFTs with beats produced by Slim Shady himself.
“I’ve been collecting since I was a kid, everything from comic books to baseball cards to toys, as well as every rap album on cassette I could get my hands on. 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.”
Eminem further added:
“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.”
Likewise, Eminem’s NFT sale is happening on the NFT marketplace Nifty Gateway and there are 50 editions of the NFTs called “TOOLS OF THE TRADE” and “STILL D.G.A.F.”
The last NFT is a limited edition single copy called “STAN’S REVENGE,” and it will be sold auction style.
The first two NFTs will be a flat rate of $5k per Eminem NFT. The NFT art and animations were created by an artist called “D.O.M.” There is also a not yet available NFT pack limited to 888 remaining pieces that haven’t been released.
Thus, the Eminem NFT auction on Nifty Gateway has happened on April 26.
