The First NFT Collection, Inspired By “The Breakfast Club,” Will Feature Artwork By Renowned Artist Justin Richburg
February 22, 2022 – OneOf, the Green Web3 Company built for music and sports, has announced an exclusive partnership with iHeartRadio’s influential, top-rated contemporary Hip-Hop/R&B nationally-syndicated morning show "The Breakfast Club". “The Breakfast Club,” hosted by DJ Envy, Angela Yee and Charlamagne tha God, is one of the most important media outlets for hip hop news, music and interviews.
OneOf and “The Breakfast Club” - including both the on-air broadcast and digital podcast - have teamed up for an exclusive partnership to bring the accessibility of NFT’s to a mass audience, give diverse artists a platform in this emerging space, and create six drops of digital NFT collectibles inspired by the morning show and its legendary hosts. Information about OneOf’s wide range of exciting and accessible NFT drops will be shared with fans on “The Breakfast Club’s” broadcast. The artwork featured in the first drop will be created by renowned illustrator and visual artist Justin Richburg.
“’The Breakfast Club’ is one of the most influential morning shows, where honest, provocative and powerful conversations about Hip Hop and culture happen today,” said Gayle Troberman, Chief Marketing Officer for iHeartMedia. “Charlamagne tha God, Angela Yee and DJ Envy are an awesome team to collaborate with Oneof to share the latest and greatest NFTs with their massive, diverse audience across iHeart’s broadcast radio, podcast and streaming platforms.”
“The Breakfast Club” has millions of monthly listeners, is nationally syndicated in nearly 90 markets around the U.S.,and was recently inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame. Portions of the proceeds from the collection will benefit critical and timely causes supported by “The Breakfast Club” and that are important to their listeners.
“’The Breakfast Club’ is the most culturally relevant morning show in America, and the tireless work Charlamagne, Envy and Angela do everyday to elevate artists and shine lights on the important issues are inspiring to us all,” says Lin Dai, CEO and co-founder of one of. “OneOf has always been committed to be the most inclusive NFT platform since our founding, backed by Quincy Jones, over 80% of OneOf NFT collections are by black or minority artists. There’s no better partner than ‘The Breakfast Club’ to educate the mass audience about importance of NFT technology to the music community.”
OneOf and iHeartRadio first partnered in the fall of 2021, when the platform created the official collectible NFT for the annual iHeartRadio Music Festival featuring performances by some of the biggest artists in music. The collection featured one million free NFTs and participating fans were eligible to receive tickets to the festival as well as limited-edition iHeartRadio Music Festival NFT artwork.
Since then OneOf has announced major partnerships with Warner Music Group, The Grammy Awards and their launch into sports with the Sports Illustrated covers series that celebrates superstar athletes including Muhammad Ali, Shaquille O’Neal, Emmitt Smith, Jerry Rice and more. OneOf’s recent Whitney Houston Collection made headlines when a never-before-heard Whitney Houston song made when she was 17 was sold at auction on OneOf for $1 million.
Deeply committed to a sustainable blockchain future, OneOf is known as the environmentally friendly “Green” Web3 Company: minting a music NFT on OneOf using the Tezos blockchain uses over 2 million times less energy than the competition, and takes as little energy as sending out a tweet. OneOf donates 5% of its platform revenue from every sale to either a charity of the artist's choice, or OneOf's environmental cause partner: the Right Here Right Now Global Climate Alliance, an official partner of United Nations Human Rights. OneOf makes NFT adoption seamless for the next 100 million non-crypto native fans by enabling NFT purchases via credit and debit cards as well as major cryptocurrencies.
