Eminem is all about making coin and expanding his brand. That includes getting into any new way to cash in. The NFT space is booming and Slim Shady is right there on board.

Stans are still waiting for Eminem’s next drop, but those with deep pockets will be able to pick up some sick Marshall Mathers NFTs in the meantime. Tom MacDonald already dropped $100,000 on an original beat, one he turned into a song dedicated to Eminem; an Em isn’t finished in the space yet.

Eminem announced that he is about to dive deeper into the NFT gold rush as he invested in MakersPlace, a multi-million dollar marketplace. He will now get a cut from the buying and selling of that digital art and other work.

The site has raised more than $30 million so far, but it’s unknown exactly how much of that money is Eminem’s buy-in. Larry Fitzgerald and Eminem’s long-time manager Paul Rosenberg are also involved.

The NFT marketplace is booming and high-dollar purchases make headlines all the time. Perhaps, Eminem’s recent move in the space will encourage others to invest their time and financial interests as well.

What’s your take on the NFT space? Sound off in the comments!

H Jenkins

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
