In a tweet featuring a lightbulb emoji, Eminem retweeted Nifty Gateway, who wrote, “Surprise… We’re excited to announce that @Eminem is dropping this Sunday — April 25th on #NiftyGateway!” The drop will be a combination of collectibles and instrumental beats.
NFT INFLUENCED BY SNL?
The NEWS comes just a few weeks after sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live (SNL) released a skit explaining NFTs. The music for the comedy clip was a parody of Eminem’s hit single “Without Me.”
In the skit, US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen is asked by a student what an NFT is. “Now what the hell’s an NFT/ Apparently cryptocurrency/ Everyone’s making so much money/ Can you please explain what’s an NFT?” he inquired.
The official website informs:
Eminem announced that he will be dropping his first NFT (Non-Fungible Token) release this Sunday, April 25 at 6:30/7 pm ET on NFT marketplace Nifty Gateway. The drop, dubbed “Shady Con,” will feature a variety of Eminem-approved NFT collectibles.
In addition, the collection features original instrumental beats produced by Slim Shady himself specifically for this release. The tracks will be made available only as part of the limited-edition and one-of-a-kind NFTs. You can get a sneak peek at one of the offerings – a set of NFT action figures – below. But this only scratches the surface of what’s coming this weekend!
