The legacy of the late Tupac Shakur is being celebrated with a new Immortal Collection NFT series inspired by his personal jewelry.

The collection consists of four pieces: the “Artist,” which is represented by his 2PAC ring; the “Activist,” symbolized by his Makaveli bracelet; the “Sinner” solitaire diamond ring; and the “Saint,” which is represented by the Euphanasia medallion necklace Shakur wore in the last photo ever taken of him in 1996.

“Tupac’s belief that everyone has the right to express themselves honestly through whichever art form they saw fit includes everything from music, to acting, from writing to dance, from photography and culinary art to self-expression through fashion,” the estate says in a statement, according to Complex.com. “For Tupac, this included his choice of jewelry. In the last year of his life, he had the luxury of not just affording higher-end items, but he started to design them himself, down to the smallest details.”

The NFTs, the first authorized by the Shakur Estate, will be available December 15 on the Makers Place digital art market. The collection provides a sneak peek at some of the items that will be displayed at the “Tupac Shakur. Wake Me When I’m Free” exhibit, which will open January 21, 2022 at The Canvas @ L.A. Live in Los Angeles.
