Seven unreleased tracks to collect in NFT
The two rappers will publish a collection of seven unreleased tracks to listen to and collect as NFTs on Pianity.

A new way to create value in music
NFTs allow artists to sell their tracks as limited editions and connect with their fans while bringing in a new way to monetize and create value from their art. Fans and collectors can support their favorite artists by purchasing music that includes a unique certificate of authenticity, which can be kept, traded or sold. With Pianity, artists, fans and collectors give value back to musical creation.
