Eminem Announces Details of His First NFT Drop on Nifty Gateway

Nifty Gateway revealed a few days ago that Eminem would be the latest celebrity doing an NFT drop on the platform, which many had already predicted would happen since SNL’s Eminem-style NFT skit. However, fans were kept in suspense about the details for a few days, only knowing the release date which is this Sunday, April 25th at 6:30/7PM ET.

Eminem has finally announced that his drop, dubbed “Shady Con,” will feature Eminem-approved NFT collectibles. The collection will also come with 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. The drop was inspired by Eminem’s childhood passion for collecting vintage toys, comic books and trading cards. 

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,” said Eminem.  “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.”
