Eminem Set to Launch His First NFT on Nifty Gateway


Eminem, the American rapper, songwriter, and record producer is set to release his first-ever NFT on Nifty Gateway on April 25. The hip-hop star is one of several prominent artists to drop an NFT on Nifty Marketplace this week. Others include rapper A$AP Rocky and rock band The White Stripes.

Eminem Dropping His First NFT on Nifty Gateway 

In a tweet featuring a lightbulb emoji, Eminem retweeted Nifty Gateway’s announcement of the American rapper releasing his first-ever non-fungible token on April 25.

The announcement comes just a few weeks after the American Television show Saturday Night Live (SNL) did a skit using an Eminem-style parody to explain Non-fungible Tokens.

The funny video involved SNL regular and comedians Pete Davidson and Chris Redd rapping alternative lyrics over Eminem’s 2002 hit “Without Me.”

Davidson is seen in the video donning a Batman & Robin-style costume as he parodies the track to explain the trend.

In the skit, U.S. 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?”

“Here’s the thing about NFTs, it’s a non-fungible token you see. Non-fungible means that it’s unique, there can only be one like you or me.” explains the video.

Eminem even acknowledged the video on April 20 by retweeting SNL’s tweet of the video, along with a thinking face emoji.

Non-Fungible Tokens Gaining Mainstream Appeal

Several other rappers are joining the NFT space, including A$AP Rocky. However, Eminem is by far the most prominent rapper to join the NFT bandwagon.

Meanwhile, just this month, Snoop Dogg released a collection of Non-fungible tokens titled “A Journey With The Dogg.” The collection includes original tracks from Snoop, along with artworks inspired by Snoop’s life.

Meanwhile, Soulja Boy claims to be the world’s first rapper to sell his tweets as an NFT. After asking his fans on March 7, how to sell his tweets as NFTs, he proceeded to sell that tweet for $1,288.

Additionally, Lil Pump launched his NFT collection on Sweet, while Takeshi69 on Bondly.finance.
