NFTs don't seem to be going anywhere any time soon (that's what a lot of people with a lot of money want you to think, anyway) and they continue to infiltrate more and more of the pop culture universe. 

That continues today with the announcement of an NFT collection commemorating the 25th anniversary of Notorious B.I.G.'s death. The legendary rapper's estate has teamed up with platform OneOf to release the collection. 

"We are excited about our partnership with OneOf and their expertise to memorialize my son Christopher with this first official NFT drop to give his fans an opportunity to participate in and honour their love of him and his music," said Biggie's mother Voletta Wallace.

"We're honoured to work with the Christopher Wallace Estate to celebrate the incredible legacy of Biggie Smalls," added OneOf cofounder and COO Josh James. "Using NFT technology, Biggie's legacy and his outsized impact on music and culture will be forever cemented on blockchain, to be honoured and shared with fans around the world and for generations to come."

The collection will be minted by OneOf on Tezos, the "environmentally responsible proof-of-stake blockchain." A portion of the proceeds will go to The Christopher Wallace Memorial Foundation, Inc.

In related news, it was recently revealed that LimeWire would be returning as an NFT marketplace. The crypto bros will eventually come for us all.
