A house party in The Bronx, New York on August 11th, 1973 gave birth to hip-hop culture. Ever since, the alternative society art movement spread from New York housing projects to the whole world, while modern-day hip-hop artists often lead the global pop charts.
Indeed, the rebellious and free spirit of hip-hop culture aligns well with the innovations that blockchain technology has to offer. While the culture’s music adopts futuristic, EDM sounds more than ever, three OGs decided to take it up a notch and step into the metaverse to share the creative process with Web3 enthusiasts.
Hip-Hop Icons to Teach Peace in the Metaverse
The first musical metaverse performance will feature three artists – Havoc of Mobb Deep, Saigon, and Jahlil Beats. Havoc, one of the greatest East Coast producers of all time, had a long-standing beef with the Brooklyn-bred rapper Saigon throughout the early 2000s.
On top of that, Havoc, the author of “Eye For An Eye”, had a fair number of altercations with other popular artists throughout his lengthy career, including 2Pac, Jay-Z and even Prodigy, the other half of The Infamous Mobb Deep. However, recently Havoc and Saigon settled their differences and aimed to set a positive example for the community by creating a song together produced by Jahlil Beats.
With four months and 20 days left until the 50th anniversary of hip-hop culture, the celebration series by M.Verse begins today – the countdown clock is punching the last 13 hours, while full-access NFT tickets cost $50 on initial sale. The Polygon-minted NFT ticket includes the Hip-Hop Museum, participation in the song making process, and current airdrops and gives access to attendee-only NFT drops.
