The estate of Tupac Shakur has unveiled an NFT collection based on some of the rapper’s personal jewelry.

According to a press release, Pac used jewelry as a form of self-collection, growing more of an interest after his rise to the mainstream. “In the last year of his life, he had the luxury of not just affording higher-end items,” it read, “but he started to design them himself, down to the smallest details.” The series titled the Immortal Collection reportedly features four of the pieces the estate and curators Digital Arts & Sciences and Impossible Brief believed “had some of the deepest meanings and intentions attached to them.” They each symbolize one of Pac’s self-proclaimed titles.

Per the release, Pac’s Makaveli bracelet, for example, represents his role as an “Activist.” His solitaire ring stands for the “Sinner” in him, the medallion necklace symbolizes his role as a “Saint,” and his 2Pac ring represents his life as an “Artist.”

The Immortal Collection, the first NFT series authorized by the Shakur Estate, is slated to drop on Dec. 15 on the Marketplace platform. The pieces will also be featured in the “Tupac Shakur. Wake Me When I’m Free” immersive museum experience at The Canvas at LA Live in January.

As previously reported by REVOLT, the exhibit will “explore the life and legacy of the acclaimed artist and activist” through the examination of his (Pac’s) poetry and music as well as technology, contemporary art and exclusive artifacts.

“We wanted to create a memorable experience that will inspire you to be better than when you walked in, all while leaving you with the knowledge that he was a true revolutionary spirit,” said Jeremy Hodges of the Project Art Collective. He partnered with the Shakur estate and Nwaka Onwusa, the Chief Curator & Vice President of Curatorial Affairs at the Rock &Roll Hall of Fame, for the project.
