Eminem's NFT: In detail
Eminem announced that he will be releasing a number of Slim Shady inspired NFTs for his fans. The world renowned artist, who sold an estimated 130million records and 389million singles during his successful career, will be a welcomed addition to the NFT market.
Eminem, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, said that he has been a fan of collectibles since the cassette tape days and this pushed him to create three animated NFTs with beats produced by no other than himself.
"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.”
Eminem NFT: What, when, where?
The NFTs will be made available on Nifty Gateway with 50 editions called "Tools of the Trade" and "STILL D.G.A.F", with both selling at a flat rate of $5k. Meanwhile, the last edition which will be a single copy is called "STAN'S REVENGE", and will be sold in an auction setting.
The art and animations were all created by an artist called "D.O.M". There is also a NFT pack which is not available just yet which is limited to 888 remaining unreleased pieces. The auction is scheduled for today according to Nifty Gateway's Twitter account.
