The collection will be exhibited in partnership with Nifty Gateway and is based on novelties Eminem collected and admired as a child — this includes everything from comic books to trading cards to toys and action figures. Eminem will also be dropping NFTs of original instrumental beats produced by himself.
“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 in a statement. “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.”
Shady Con will begin at 6:30 p.m. EST on Nifty Gateway‘s website.
