Hip hop legend Sir Mix-A-Lot is launching an NFT collection celebrating the 30th anniversary of his 1992 hit “Baby Got Back”. In partnership with META-X Studios, the “BIT BUTTS” NFT collection will go live on 9 May.
And yes, you’ve heard that right. The collection consists of 6,666 hand-drawn digital derrières (butts) by world-class animation artists. What’s more, Sir Mix-A-Lot has personally designed the rarest BIT BUTTS in the collection. So simps, you might want to keep an eye out on this one.
Make no mistake. The cheeky NFT project with a purpose will raise funds for one of the most under-funded cancer charities. Unlike BIT BUTTS, colorectal cancer is no joke. Each year, more than 150,000 Americans are impacted by this disease with Black communities at particular risk. A share of each sale will go to the Colorectal Cancer Alliance, a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending this life-threatening disease.
“When the team at META-X showed me what they were doing it was a no-brainer for me,” said Sir Mix-A-Lot. “And as an artist entering this new medium of NFTs, the idea of designing my own branded butts was exciting. Add to it the benefit of raising funds for a great cause like Colorectal Cancer, and wow! I hope everyone enjoys grabbing onto some nice NFT booty while helping others at the same time.”
“NFTs are a supercharged media for storytellers,” says META-X Studios CEO Joe Sichta. “We chose BIT BUTTS as our debut launch because we all need a good laugh right now for a good cause.”
Nonetheless, Sir Mix-A-Lot and META-X Studios have released a 1-minute teaser about the collection at the NFT LA. To all of the NFT collectors who don’t take themselves too seriously, feel free to join META-X Studios’ Discord channel to get the latest updates about the drop.
