Clifford Smith Jr., better known by his stage name Method Man from the rap supergroup the Wu-Tang Clan, announced plans to launch a non-fungible token (NFT) collection called “Tical World.” The tokenized comics and Killa Beez-centric art was designed by the New York artist Alex Smetsky.
Wu-Tang Member Method Man to Launch Killa Beez-Centric NFTs
The popular member of the rap supergroup Wu-Tang Clan, Method Man has revealed he’s stepping into the non-fungible token (NFT) industry. Method Man is releasing an NFT comic series called the “Tical World” chronicles and “Part 1: The Origin,” which offers a slew of features from the Wu-Tang rapper. The NFT will include never-before-released music from Method Man, 3D animations, and apparel.
Essentially, in terms of apparel, the NFT owner can get a VIP rewards card from the American rapper’s clothing line Tical Athletics. Last year, Method Man also launched a cannabis brand that leverages the name Tical as well. The Wu-Tang rapper coined the cannabis term ‘Tical’ back in 1993 and it’s been represented in hip-hop culture ever since. The Tical World NFT art will also be signed by Method Man and the artist Smetsky.
Method Man Teams up With Flow Blockchain and Tunego
The NFTs will feature the only copies of the original Tical World characters which will be issued on the Flow blockchain, the same protocol that issues NBA Top Shot. NFT collectors will be able to capture “community-owned crypto-characters,” according to a write-up published by Rolling Stone. Besides leveraging the Dapper Labs’ Flow blockchain technology, the Wu-Tang rapper’s NFTs will utilize Tunego Vault as well.
On August 6, a Twitter handle by the name Tical World introduced itself online and said: “Get Ready! Tical World is coming.” The same day, the official Flow blockchain Twitter account also tweeted about Method Man’s upcoming NFTs.
“Open worlds continue to collide as incredible musicians make their move to blockchain,” the Flow blockchain account said on Friday. “We can’t wait to enter Tical World with legendary emcee Method Man, a true comic book aficionado launching his very own comic universe of exclusive NFTs with Tunego.”
