We are beyond proud to welcome British rapper and songwriter Aitch as one of the first headliners dropping on LimeWire. Aitch’s first-ever NFT collection was done in collaboration with Soga World and is based on his upcoming debut album “Close To Home” that is being released on August 19th.
One collection entails a physical copy of the new album as CD or Vinyl combined with a limited edition album cover, while the second collection comes as a Mystery Box with the chance to win a variety of exclusive in-person benefits. Fans can sign up on our platform and purchase the NFTs with their credit card, much like on any other online store or with one of the crypto currencies we currently accept.
“To commemorate the release of my debut album "Close To Home," I've partnered with LimeWire for my first-ever NFT initiative. It will be a collection that my fans will undoubtedly like. One collection will be a constrained set that includes a signed poster, a tangible CD or Vinyl, and a digital piece of NFT art. The other one, the Mystery Box collection, is something I'm really excited about because it will give 46 lucky NFT holders the chance to win something really special, like spending a full day onsite filming a music video, getting backstage passes at the next performance, or joining me for a shopping extravaganza.” said Aitch.
The Limited Edition “Close To Home” album collection, consists of only 500 copies (250 CDs, 250 Vinyls), and contains a signed poster, a physical CD or Vinyl with a unique alternative album art, as well as a digital NFT art piece which is only available on LimeWire. The CD bundle is priced at $25, while the Vinyl bundle costs $50, shipping included.
The “Close To Home” Mystery Box collection is the second collection, with 100 copies of 16 different collectible digital trading cards & artworks created by Funny Tummy totaling 1600 collectibles overall. For each purchase fans will receive one of the 16 digital trading cards & art pieces at random. Each copy is priced at $15. With the help of this collection, 46 fortunate NFT holders will have the opportunity to win in-person experiences with Aitch, such as 5x unlimited show tickets for life, spending a whole day onsite experiencing how it is behind the scenes at the recording of a music video, or going shopping with Aitch. The lucky winners will be revealed once the collection is sold out. Other perks include 10x unlimited access to shows for the next year, 1 FaceTime with Aitch, 16 signed physical artworks, a fan portrait done by Funny Tummy, 10 Merch bundles and a personal video message from Aitch.
“I'm absolutely thrilled with the artwork that's behind the NFTs. The NFT artwork symbolises each track on the album, and they truly capture the essence of the songs, the subjects, and what it's all about. Funny Tummy and I closely collaborated on the graphics for the collections. Few of the songs were released as singles, thus fans are already familiar with them. Baby with Ashanti is a true love song on the album, and the NFT for it is based on a picture of myself when I was a baby. The artwork created by Funny Tummy is brilliant; it incorporates elements of graffiti and anime.” said Aitch and continues: “One of the NFTs was created for the song 1989, a love letter to Manchester and a nostalgic ballad. There are traces of Manchester in the artwork, including my former home. My G, a song with Ed Sheeran, is another one I want my fans to know how special it is. Because of the title, you might assume it's simply about my pals in the first few seconds, but it's actually about my sister Gracie, who we call G. It's all about her in that song. It holds a very important place in my heart. I created this song specifically for her so that when she's older, she may listen to it and know how important she is to me and hopefully be proud of what I am doing as an artist.”
