The Notorious B.I.G. estate is partnering with OneOf to release an NFT collection for Biggie Smalls. OneOf made the announcement on March 9, the 25th anniversary of Biggie’s death.
Part of the proceeds from the Biggie Smalls NFT Collection will go to Biggie’s foundation.
To Josh James, CEO, and co-founder of OneOf, the new partnership is a celebration of Biggie’s legacy.
“We’re honored to work with The Christopher Wallace Estate,” says James. “Using NFT technology, Biggie’s legacy and his outsized impact on music and culture will be forever cemented on blockchain.”
Meanwhile, fans can look forward to the anniversary of Biggie’s sophomore album, Life After Death. The 25th anniversary of that occasion follows 2 weeks after the Biggie Smalls NFT drop.
The Notorious B.I.G., Christopher Wallace
Christopher George Latore Wallace is also known by several stage names. These include the Notorious B.I.G., Biggie Smalls, or simply Biggie.
Wallace was an American rapper and songwriter, sadly assassinated in 1997. It was a drive-by shooting incident.
Voletta Wallace, the late rapper’s mom, later founded the Christopher Wallace Memorial Foundation. The non-profit seeks to support the youth in their education. Voletta says the NFT drop will be a chance for fans to honor their love for Biggie and his music.
