Method Man is launching his own comics universe, titled Tical World, via NFT. The first installment of the rapper’s anthology series, “Part 1: The Origin,” features original characters, animations, artwork, apparel, and unreleased music available for sale as NFTs.
This includes a Killa Beez-inspired original artwork signed by Method Man and New York artist Alex Smetsky; a 3D-enabled digital animation depicting the origin story of Tical World; an unreleased audio recording with music and lyrics by Method Man; the sole copies of the first artistic renderings of the Tical World characters; and a gold VIP card for Tical Athletics, Method Man’s athleisure line. Tical World also represents the first “community owned crypto-characters” to use Flow Blockchain, developed by Dapper Labs and secured by the patented TuneGO Vault.
The comic series is only the latest comics-related project from Method Man, who currently hosts a weekly Marvel podcast, Marvel/Method. Earlier this summer, he took the stage at the 2021 BET Awards with Swizz Beatz, Busta Rhymes and Griselda to pay tribute to DMX. He also teamed up with the duo Jones Ink for a new single, “Day Ones,” marking his second collaborative single of 2021 after “Story of My Life” with Street Life in February.
