3,000 NFTs Sold in the Blink of an Eye
OneOf NFT, the NFT platform behind the new collection, aims to “connect fans and collectors to their favorite artists, athletes & brands”. With the finely crafted pieces of digital art selling out within 10 minutes, Biggie Smalls fans are already asking “what’s next?”. Indeed, the OneOf NFT has plenty in store for those looking to contribute, as NFT holders on the platform also gain voting rights.
The lucky NFT holders will now be able to join the ‘Sky’s The Limit Collective’ and vote on who gets permission to remix Biggie’s ‘Fulton Street Freestyle’. Freestyle marks the beginning of Notorious B.I.G’s journey into music. Brooklyn, home to a great many iconic emcees, now has Christopher Wallace Way, a street right next to Fulton, to celebrate the late Hip Hop icon.
It comes as no surprise that in the over saturated music business, quality is sometimes overlooked. However, Sky’s The Limit NFT holders now have the unique opportunity to make sure this doesn’t happen, as anyone hoping to remix Notorious B.I.G’s Fulton Street Freestyle will first have to gainthe approval of the Collective.
