Another series of NFTs inspired by Tupac Shakur will be released on the 15th of December 2021. The auction is set to take place on MakersPlace – a popular market where rare digital arts are sold off as Non-fungible tokens. This was disclosed to the public on the 9th of December 2021 through a press release by the marketplace.
The Shakur estate approved the NFT collection and dubbed it the immortal collection. The collection features the jewelry preferences of the late rapper. The collection includes the diamonds rings, Medallion, and bracelets he wore in the last set of photographs.
The collection is hyped to be the first observation of Tupac's personal items by the public. According to the press release contents, the collection was picked together by the concerted efforts of his estate, NFT artists' impossible brief and curators Digital Arts and Sciences.
Meanwhile, in May 2021, the first big Tupac Shakur-inspired NFT – a photo of him two weeks before his death - was announced for sales. The NFT had an opening bid of 1 million dollars. The image Nanette Nick took was auctioned on Open seas and a video clip of Michael Jordan.
However, the Immortal collection is the first NFT planned and authorized by the Shakur estate. It would be included in the museum experience dubbed "Tupac Shakur: Wake Me When I am Free," which will come up later in January 2022. In the press release, the Shakur estate stated that the exhibit is a "part museum, part art installation, part sensory experience." They also said that it would take attendees "through a myriad of surround sound spaces, rich with rarities embedded in technology and delve into the greater meaning of his activism, music, and revolutionary art."
Tupac Shakur died at the age of 25 years old in the year 1996.
