Eminem Buys a Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT For Nearly $500,000

Eminem’s new ape-tastic twitter profile is a must for fans to check out,  as the 2002 Oscar winning rapper joins many others in buying a bored  ape NFT for nearly half a million dollars.

Dubbed as the “EminApe”, the NFT was sold by BAYC member GeeGazza for  123.45 ETh, or approximately $452,000, as reported by HypeBeast.

The Bored Ape Yatch Club (BAYC) NFTs have sold out like hot cakes among  famous personalities in 2021- Jimmy Fallon, Post Malone, Stephen Curry,  Logan Paul, Marshmellow, and the list goes on.

The BAYC saw  hundreds of millions of dollars in sales volume last year, and it’s  rapidly emerging as an up-and-coming brand in the non-fungible tokens’  market, as well as bringing the craze out into the mainstream.

For Marshall Mathers, better known through the stage name Eminem, this  isn’t the first time getting into the non-fungible market space either.

Presently, the hip hop megastar also owns the NFTs SABC #2615, Shaq Gives Back #4077, and Adult Fantasy Sub-Dude (130/151).

The artist has even released his own NFT collection, ‘Shady Con’ before.  These NFTs, with instrument beats, became an instant hit in the market,  with one of them selling for over 100K dollars.

Evidence that this  is not his first brush with the digital tokens’ circle is even seen in  his music, as he mentions bitcoin in “Not Alike,” one of the tracks on  his album “Kamikaze,” as mentioned by Coindesk.
