Get ready for hip hop in the metaverse, as The Heart Project and BitlectroLabs have big news. A ka$hdami Cryptovoxels concert has been confirmed for Saturday 27th November. The rapper will take to the virtual stage, alongside DJs including D33j.
Anyone looking to attend the event should register in advance. In return, you’ll get access to sets from the headliners. Not to mention Jordan Reyes, Theul Travistor, Gables, The Orion Lion, and Crypto Buffalo.
The showcase is being billed as the first of its kind, although we have certainly seen plenty of concerts inside various metaverses, VR, and digital environments before. Nevertheless, we’re expecting big things for this weekend, considering the parties involved.
Who’s Who in the ka$hdami Cryptovoxels Concert?
First up, The Heart Project. This community-led creative studio is the brainchild of photographer and director Aidan Cullen. He’s known for working with the likes of A$AP Rocky, Trippie Red, and Halsey, among others. Built on the blockchain, the studio’s aim is to conceptualise, workshop, and fund so-called “passion projects”.
It has also tasked itself with engaging communities and uplifting talent that don’t have access to traditional media entry points. Forthcoming projects will touch on music videos, gaming, clothing, short films, and more. Deb Never, Jean Dawson, benny blanco + lil Dicky, and MadeinTYO are all involved.
Then we have ka$hdami. If you keep an eye on the music press, this Las Vegas, Nevada-born talent should already be familiar. Rising to stardom in recent months, he is still in his mid-teens. So the future seems very bright for the him. Not least if he continues to explore and embrace the opportunities blockchain has created for the music industry.
Finally, there’s BitlectroLabs. This is the team behind Cryptovoxels, which is one of the most forward-thinking metaverses out there. Just look at the recent news we reported on how people will soon be able to use avatars from all NFT collectibles series on the platform. Or the carbon offsetting initiative it has launched with help from Offsetra.
