The self-taught 27-year-old, Grammy-nominated, Canadian trap prodigy has become one of the most sought-after producers in the music industry. Now, he takes his brand and sick beats to the NFT space, with a curated collection of incredible “Baby Murda” based NFT pieces on Crypto.com — dropping this Friday.
Born Shane Lee Lindstrom, from Fort Erie, Ontario, Murda has always had music be big part of his life. At 16, he was drawn to Chicago’s drill scene and reached out to Glory Boys Entertainment, home of Chief Keef and Lil Durk just as that wave was breaking. He began sending them beats and would eventually travel to Chicago to work with this crew that was pioneering the new sound of music. Before long he was locking in with Takeoff, Offset, and Quavo of the Grammy-nominated rap trio Migos, on records that would shape pop culture.
Having produced 8 Grammy nominated albums and over 20 Billboard #1 albums, Murda Beatz has solidified himself as the must have producer on any project. He has production credits on the #1 song in the world in 2018, Drake’s “Nice For What,” which was #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 8 weeks as well as the triple-platinum Migos single “Motorsport” featuring Nicki Minaj and Cardi B.
Beyond producing platinum singles by artists ranging from Drake to Travis Scott, he is growing his brand exponentially into sectors such as DJing and gaming. His passion for new and innovative technology has also now manifested into a curiosity for blockchain, cryptocurrencies and NFTs.
The “Murda Beatz NFT Collection” features 5 incredible NFT collectibles starring his Baby Murda character in different scenes inspired by Murdaz everyday life. Each collectible features a beat from the platinum-selling producer. From rolling down the palm tree-filled streets of LA to producing with Migos in the studio watching BTC charts go to the moon, this collection captures it all.
The collection also includes a plethora of various redeemable scenarios for lucky collectors, including:
- Murda Beatz x Kidrobot Limited Edition Figure
- $3,000 worth of BTC
- $2,000 worth of ETH
- $1,000 worth of CRO
Mark your calendars and fill your wallets — the collection goes live exclusively on Crypto.com’s NFT marketplace on Friday, December 10th.
