Eminem looks like he could be entering the lucrative NFT (non-fungible token) game. Slim Shady kicked off the week on Monday (April 19) providing a vague response to the viral skit from Jack Harlow, SNL‘s Pete Davidson and Chris Redd explaining NFTs during a Saturday Night Live episode in March.
Eminem responded with a thinking emoji to the spoof, which used his 2002 “Without Me” to help dissect the cryptocurrency craze.
“Two silicon boys were talking outside, talking outside, talking outside/Now what the hell’s an NFT/ Apparently cryptocurrency/Everyone’s making so much money/Can you please explain what’s an NFT,” Davidson raps while donning Em’s Rap Boy costume from the “Without Me” video.

On Tuesday (April 20), Eminem followed up with another tweet featuring a lightbulb emoji next to Nifty Gateway’s account. The tweet essentially teases Em joining the NFT foray with a surprise on the way for his very first crypto release possibly coming on Sunday (April 25) with more details to come.
“Surprise We’re excited to announce that @Eminem is dropping this Sunday – April 25th on #NiftyGateway! Look out for more information and details to come,” Nifty Gateway wrote.
