Benny The Butcher is celebrating two years of The Plugs I Met with his debut NFT collection on UREEQA Marketplace.

The upcoming NFT drop will offered as an online auction on August 12 and will offer winners the opportunity to own limited and exclusive music content, as well as personally connect with the Griselda titan. Benny The Butcher’s collection is set to include all track utility videos from The Plugs I Met CD that hears him dissect about each track, a personalized autographed The Plugs I Met CD, the opportunity to watch him in concert via Zoom during his Burden of the Plugs Tour, plus virtual backstage access and a personal Zoom call with the artist. One lucky winner will also be given an in-person opportunity to attend one of the shows chosen by team, including backstage and all-access passes and one-on-one time with Benny The Butcher, but will have to cover their travel and lodging.

“This NFT collection is a chance to give back to the fans that have been down with me since day one,” Benny the Butcher said in a statement. “I wanted to do something that would be exclusive to my core fans and connect with them in a way that hasn’t been possible until now.”
