Nas announced his partnership with blockchain platform Royal to offer 50 percent of the streaming rights from two of his songs as NFTs.
According to a press release, a limited number of tokens will be offered on January 11, granting holders a portion of the publishing rights to “Ultra Black” and “Rare” from King’s Disease and King’s Disease II, respectively.
Nas released a surprise new album called Magic, which was produced entirely by Hit-Boy. The record marked his third team-up with the producer following King’s Disease and King’s Disease II.
Nas will head to the concert hall on May 1 for a show that will see him perform his seminal album Illmatic in full. It won’t be the first time the rapper has given the record the orchestral treatment – in 2014, he teamed up with the National Symphony Orchestra for another run-through of the album in full.
