Another NFT will consist of 5 unreleased songs from the famous artist and rapper DMX, who passed away recently. Besides this, an NFT called ‘My Time With Prince’, will consist of audio and video compilations of the early days of Prince. ‘Collab Crib: The Collab Times’ NFT will consist of limited edition avatars and trading cards launched by one of the first all-black content houses in the city of Atlanta.
