Tupac Shakur passed away in 1996, but his legacy continues as now his classic ‘Makaveli” album will be turned into a NFT.
“The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory” is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year and TMZ reports that Riskie Forever will have the artwork as a non fungible token. The album is known for its iconic artwork that sees Tupac Shakur depicted controversially as Jesus Christ. The parental advisory sticker infamously covered his pelvic area.
The album saw Tupac Shakur release his last music video with the single “I Aint Mad At Ya” and other classics such as “White Manz World” and “Hold Ya Head.” The project was released soon after his murder on November 5, 1996. Tupac’s last event he attended was the Mike Tyson fight in Las Vegas.
Tyson will also be apart of this project to have the album work as a NFT. The iconic boxer told TMZ Hip Hop: “This episode was cool to shoot. Having the opportunity to honor Pac and have this painting here with us was awesome. It’s by far the most iconic hip hop album artwork of all time.”
Fans can start bidding on the art starting today until June 18 in Dallas at 445 Park Avenue and fans will also have a chance to win up to $100,000 through sweepstakes on the MakaveliArt.com website starting today all the way to June 5.
