Following the recent announcement of his two-day virtual concert experience later this month, “Weekend at Murs”, the legendary West Coast rapper has added a unique upgrade experience for the ultimate fans, and a warm welcome for crypto-art fans new to his music. Available on the new hip-hop-centered NFT website TheHotBlocks.com, attendees will have a 24-hour period this Saturday to buy a package of limited edition digital VIP upgrades thanks to the power of the blockchain, including a unique piece of art inspired by “St. Ides”, a track from Murs’ latest album ‘Love and Rockets 2‘, illustrated by comic book artist Joel H Herrera (Mercy Sparx, Barack the Barbarian, The Encoded), a limited-edition video clip of the live performance, and a T-shirt featuring the Herrera art. The open sale of the NFT will be available for 24 hours starting at 9PM Eastern / 6PM Pacific Standard Time, Saturday, April 17, and once closed, the NFTs will be created and numbered in the order purchased. Prices rise over the twenty-four hour period, rewarding earlier buyers. Register for notifications today at TheHotBlocks.com
