The performer will launch a never-before-heard demo of his hit song “Beach In Hawaii”. Furthermore, each NFT will come with unique illustrations by Jim Mahfood renowned for his works at Disney, Coemdy Central, and more.
In fact, each digital assset brings unique experiences and prizes – so let’s find out more!
What is Ziggy Marley’s NFT drop all about?
This week, the iconic eight-time GRAMMY winner Ziggy Marley officially taps into NFTs! In essence, his NFT collection reveals the unheard version of his song “Beach In Hawaii”. The drop will go live on October 17th via OneOf, a green music-focused Web3 platform.
In addition to the demo, fans will also receive a digital artwork from none other than Jim Mahfood. The iconic illustrator has been working with Cartoon Network, Marvel, Disney, and created several comic book series himself.
Of course, the NFT’s illustration perfectly captures Ziggy Marley’s reggae style and the essence of “Beach In Hawaii.” After all, the Rolling Stones once described it as “a quick-stepping song with sun-soaked guitars that mask a heartsick loneliness”.
