Eminem Spends $450K USD on an NFT That Looks Like Him

With the rising interest in NFTs and the metaverse, more celebrities are tapping into the virtual space, including Eminem. The rapper most recently purchased a Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT for $450,000 USD.

The graphic, dubbed “EminApe,” shows the signature Bored Ape figure dressed in a khaki army cap and a gold chain necklace, both often worn by Eminem in real life. The digital artwork was sold by BAYC member GeeGazza for 123.45 ETH, which roughly converts to $450,000 USD. “I still think Eminem is destined to buy my @BoredApeYC one day,” GeeGazza had tweeted back in November 2021.

This isn’t Eminem’s first NFT purchase — the musician already owns 15 virtual pieces on the OpenSea platform under the name “Shady Holdings.”

In related news, the world’s first text message has been sold as an NFT.
