Marshall Mathers, popularly known as “Eminem,” is joining the non-fungible token (NFT) collectibles games as he auctions three types of NFTs he designed himself via Nifty Gateway.

As for the items, there are 50 editions of the NFT called “TOOLS OF THE TRADE” as well as “STILL D.G.A.F.” The third NFT is a limited edition, single copy known as “STAN’S REVENGE” and will be sold auction style.

Eminem’s sale will happen on the Nifty Gateway marketplace. The first two tokens will sell at a flat rate of $5,000.

The move adds the legendary rapper to the list of popular personalities who have joined the NFT bandwagon.

A collector since the younger days

According to Bitcoin.com, during the announcement of NFT sale, Eminem said he had been a collector ever since he was a kid.

“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,” he said.

As for the NFT drop, the rapper said, “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.”

Celebrities lining up for NFTs

There have been a number of popular projects involving non-fungible tokens that have already made the headlines.

These include Lindsay Lohan, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Rob “Gronk” Gronkowski’s NFTs, Tom Brady’s Autograph project, Topps Garbage Pail Kids and Baseball cards, Annoying Orange NFTs, and NFT collectibles by Kenyan filmmaker Rich Allela.

It is also important to note that per reports, there are already a great number of celebrities that have stepped into the NFT world, and there seems to be no indication that the trend will stop.
