A new NFT collection inspired by Tupac Shakur’s jewelry collection will be sold by the late rap icon’s estate, making it the first Pac-related NFT to be officially licensed. “The Immortal Collection” will be available Wednesday, December 15 and will include digital replicas of 2pac’s most popular jewelry, including one that was worn by the rapper the night he died.
Created by Digital Arts & Sciences in partnership with Impossible Brief, The Immortal Collection consists of four pieces: “Artist”, “Activist”, “Sinner” and “Saint”. Each piece is inspired by an aspect of Pac’s personality and includes “diamond solitaire rings, his Makaveli bracelet and the locket he wore in the last photo ever taken of him,” according to a press release.
“Tupac’s belief that everyone has the right to honest expression through whatever art form they deem appropriate includes everything from music to theater, writing to dance, photography and art. ‘culinary art to self-expression through fashion,’ read the press release. “For Tupac, that included his choice of jewelry.”
The collection will also be included in the museum’s upcoming exhibit titled “Tupac Shakur: Wake Me When I’m Free,” which opens in January 2022 at The Canvas at LA Live near Georgia Street and Olympic Boulevard.
