Iconic Musical Pioneers Celebrated with NFTs
A new blockchain technology company concentrating on creator ownership has released its first batch of non-fungible tokens, which include five previously unreleased DMX tracks as well as an image of jazz legend Miles Davis. Melanated NFT Gallery, a Black and female-owned enterprise in the NFT and metaverse sphere, is backed by Nea Simone, a marketing executive and New York Times bestselling author. The firm’s mission is to provide an equitable platform for creators from the African and Afro-Latinx diasporas, as well as others who have been historically exploited, to share and sell their work.
“Melanated Originals” by emerging and established artists are shown in the Melanated NFT Gallery. In early December, MNFTG will release its inaugural Icon and celebrity NFT Collection, which will include a range of drops. TikTok debuted a DMX account on December 1 in honour of the late rap legend and to promote “X-ecember,” a month-long celebration of the icon.
DMX raps along to “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” in the first video clip, which was shot during a 2012 radio visit to New York’s Power 105.1. On April 9, 2021, the 50-year-old Yonkers native and rapper passed away. The news comes after the publication of DMX: The Legacy, a Def Jam collection that celebrates his career accomplishments. The definitive, official best-of collection of hip-hop icon DMX is DMX: The Legacy. Legacy is a retrospective of his career as one of hip hop’s most distinctively gruff, gritty, and unabashedly passionate voices.
“Ruff Ryders’ Anthem” is a track written by the Ruff Ryders. “What’s My Name,” “Party Up,” and “X Going To Give It To Ya,” to name a few others on the upcoming release. This Def Jam compilation, which begins shortly after DMX’s return to the label, includes songs like “How’s It Going Down,” “Who We Be,” and “Grand Finale,” among others. The vinyl will be released on December 10th.
