- Rolling Stone and Coinbase are collaborating to mint exclusive NFTs.
- Both companies have roped in 12 established artists in the NFT space.
- The NFT drop will be offered to Coinbase Wallet users.
American music and pop culture magazine Rolling Stone has partnered with Coinbase to mint exclusive NFTs. Following a two-year hiatus, the magazine company is returning to the Superbowl through its “Rolling Stone Live” event.
The event will mark the beginning of Rolling Stone’s partnership with Coinbase and will feature a star-studded lineup of music performances. For their first project in this ongoing partnership, both companies are collaborating to mint a limited release NFT offered to Coinbase Wallet users.
For this exclusive NFT drop, Rolling Stone and Coinbase have roped in 12 influential NFT artists to each create an artwork. Later this year, the static NFT art will be animated before being made available for purchase on Coinbase’s NFT marketplace, giving Rolling Stone fans a chance to own a piece of the magazine’s history.
The creators behind NFT collections such as Deadfellaz and Boss Beauties are among the 12 artists collaborating on this limited NFT. Deadfellaz counts celebrities and influencers like Elijah Wood, Crystal Hefner, and Odell Beckham Jr amongst its buyers.
Recently, Boss Beauties announced that they will be the first NFTs to be displayed at the United Nations. The project was also the first NFT art displayed at the New York Stock Exchange and are teaming up with Marvel for a yet-to-be-revealed project to spread the message of women empowerment.
Other prolific NFT artists contributing to this project have been working within the world of music and pop culture.
They include graphic designer and 3D artist KidEight who has worked with Atlantic Records, Def Jam, Sony Records, and UMG; graphic artist Jeff Manning who creates work inspired by neo-soul music; Emmy award-winning motion graphic artist Emonee LaRussa who has created music visuals for artists like Kanye West, Lil Nas X and Megan Thee Stallion; and digital collage artist MikeGrillMadeIt, whose works explores the conflict between pop culture and religion.
Ahead of Super Bowl LVI on Feb 14, Rolling Stone is giving viewers a first look at the art pieces here.
