Eminem’s contributions to the world of Hip-Hop cannot be understated in any way. Artists such as Skylar Grey still get starstruck working with him even now. It seems a marketplace Eminem Invested in will now trade Baby Shark NFTs.
Eminem is also never shy from telling fans about his humble beginnings, as he grew up very poor and portrayed as such in the film 8 Mile. He also previously opened up his own restaurant called ‘Mom’s spaghetti.
The “Baby Shark” music video took the world by storm in 2018. It became a viral sensation and now is the most viewed video on YouTube with almost 9.7 billion views gained. Due to this it certainly has a lot of brand and marketable value.
According to a report by Forbes, SmartStudy, the Korean company behind the video, is looking to make an impact in the NFT market. SmartStudy has chosen MakersPlace, where Eminem was on the MakersPlace investors list together with Sony Music, former Sotheby’s CEO Bill Ruprecht and more.
It was said that the SmartStudy shareholders’ stocks jumped about 6% on Tuesday after the NFT announcement. It remains to be seen whether the NFT deal will turn out to be lucrative or not.
