Iconic hip hop group releases first generative art series from recording artists
Curio, the premier NFT platform for the biggest names in entertainment, has announced the “Dirty South Soul Food Truck” NFT collection in partnership with Goodie Mob, a legendary hip hop group based in Atlanta that was formed in 1991 by T-Mo, Khujo, Big Gipp and CeeLo Green. The collection is the first generative art project for a major recording artist and will feature art that celebrates Goodie Mob’s Atlanta roots with soul food and hip hop music.
“We’ve been doing this a long time and are excited to participate in the next wave of artistic creation and expression,” states Goodie Mob. “We’re proud to be the first recording artists to come out with a generative art project. Working with Curio empowers us to be creative beyond our musical talent and give our fans visual art that demonstrates everything that makes us, us.”
The collection consists of a generative art series featuring a food truck from the near future. The NFTs themselves will consist of artwork showcasing food, beverage, tin chefs and Goodie Chefs that all represent different rarity values. Upon launch, 2,500 packs will be available through a blind draw, costing about $100 per draw. Each draw will include a punch card that allows collectors to maintain access to exclusive Goodie Mob experiences even past NFT resale.
The collection celebrates Goodie Mob’s debut album, Soul Food, which was critically acclaimed, certified Gold and spawned a number of Billboard Hot 100 hits while also addressing social and political issues such as racism, discrimination, geopolitics and gentrification. Proceeds from the collection will be allocated to the Atlanta Community Food Bank.
“We grew up listening to Goodie Mob and their music is timeless and iconic,” states Ben Arnon, Co-Founder and CRO, Curio. “This collection represents fans’ entry point into the Goodie Mob NFT community, which will grow and remain vibrant for years to come. We’re thrilled to be partnering with these musical legends.”
The drop for the “Dirty South Soul Food Truck” NFT collection from Goodie Mob is scheduled for October 7th at 2 pm PDT.
