According to the listing that was posted on the OneOf website before the sale of The Notorious B.I.G.: Sky’s The Limit Collection, it is the very first NFT collection commissioned from the estate of Christopher Wallace.
The collection contains 3,000 “unique generative art pieces” that encompass Biggie’s genuine outlook based on his life and lyrics from his viewpoint. Buyers of each NFT are granted exclusive membership to the Sky’s The Limit Collective. Members hold 80% voting rights on the creatives which may include artists, DJs, and musicians who can remix or sample Biggie’s iconic “Fulton Street Freestyle.” The collective of the Sky’s The Limit Collection will be entitled to all licensing, sales, and streaming revenue from the use of the freestyle. They will then be able to invest in future music projects, NFT collections, IRL events, other VIP activations, and more. They also will have the benefit of having early access to The Brook Metaverse, which is slated to launch later this year in the fall, and a few surprises that will be revealed in time.
OneOf is a “platform that supports NFTs on multiple energy-efficient blockchains, connecting fans and collectors to iconic musicians, athletes and brands.”
The Notorious B.I.G., already an icon before his untimely death, was a Brooklyn-born rapper and songwriter. Born Christopher Wallace and also known as Biggie, the legendary rapper was killed in a hail of bullets after attending a VIBE magazine party in California in 1997. He was just 24 years old.
