- Eminem buys Bored Ape NFT for $ 450,000.
- The rapper joins a number of other celebrities to invest in Bored Ape.
Legendary American rapper Marshall Mathers, Eminem, became the last super celebrity to buy Bored Ape NFT. That’s why NFT’s Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) has been very popular this year and the project has had more than $ 1 billion worldwide, according to defillama.com metrics.
On Thursday night, he bought one of the Ethereum-based monkeys for 123.45 ETH ($ 452,000). He then made the monkey his profile picture on Twitter. Following his recent acquisition, the rapper appears to have collected at least 15 NFTs on OpenSea so far under the name Shady_Holdings.
NFTs from the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) collection recorded a 35 percent increase in the minimum price, while other popular collections in turn fell.
Part of the reason for this may be that many super celebrities like Steph Curry jumped in and bought Bored Ape for their pictures on their Twitter profile.

Eminem is one of the best-selling music artists of all time, having sold more than 220 million records worldwide. He is also the only rapper to ever win an Oscar and a Golden Globe for Best Original Song, which he won for “Lose Yourself” in the movie “8 Miles”. He has also won numerous American Music Awards and 15 Grammy Awards.
Fellow member of BAYC GeeGazza sold a blonde monkey to a rapper, announcing that the sale that is becoming reality is “madness” and the remark: “I live in a simulation”. Eminem has not yet publicly commented on the sale.
GeeGazza, in fact, had been hoping for months to sell this monkey to Eminem. Back in November, he said, “I still think Eminem is destined one day to buy my Annoying Monkey.” He also admitted, “You don’t understand how long I’ve been showing Eminem buying my monkey.”
