Hip-hop legend Sir Mix-A-Lot launches an NFT collection celebrating the 30th anniversary of his 1992 hit “Baby Got Back.” In partnership with META-X Studios, the NFT Collection “BIT BUTTS” will go live on May 9th.
And yes, you heard that right. The collection consists of 6,666 hand-drawn digital derrières (butts) by world-class animators. In addition, Sir Mix-A-Lot personally designed the rarest BIT BUTTS in the collection. So, to put it simply, you should keep an eye on this one.
Sir Mix-A-Lot raises funds for a good cause with proceeds from the sale of BIT BUTTS NFT
make no mistake The cheeky NFT project with a purpose will raise funds for one of the world’s most underfunded cancer charities. Unlike BIT BUTTS, colon cancer is no joke. The disease affects more than 150,000 Americans each year, with black communities particularly at risk. A portion of every sale goes to the Colorectal Cancer Alliance, a non-profit organization dedicated to ending this life-threatening disease.
“When the META-X team showed me what they do, it was a no-brainer for me,” laughs Sir Mix-A-Lot. “And as an artist stepping into this new medium of NFTs, the idea of designing my own branded butts was exciting. Add to that the benefit of raising funds for a great cause like colon cancer and wow! I hope everyone enjoys snagging some nice NFT loot while helping others.”
“NFTs are a charged medium for storytelling,” said Joesichta, CEO of META-X Studios. “We chose BIT BUTTS as our debut launch because we all need a good laugh for a good cause right now.”
Nonetheless, Sir Mix-A-Lot and META-X Studios released a 1 minute teaser about the collection at NFT LA. To all NFT collectors who don’t take themselves too seriously, feel free to join the META-X Studios Discord channel for the latest updates on the Drop.
