Shigga Shay’s Spacebars NFT collection exceeded expectations when it sold out in less than 5 minutes. The collection consists of three series (Stellar Swinging, Cosmic Cartwheels, and Far Out Floating), with each containing a different part of a rap verse. Based on the cover of his 365 EP released in 2020, the animated artwork features a cartoon astronaut designed by visual artist Ebao and animated in 3D by American digital creative agency Wild Portals. There are 3 different card designs, each featuring a different portion of the freestyle. Within each design, there are 3 different levels of rarity to pursue: Common, Rare and Ultra. If you were lucky enough to collect all 3 different designs (regardless of rarity) you would then unlock the legendary card with the full 16-bars freestyle embedded inside.
