Method Man is the latest Hip-Hop head to enter the non-fungible tokens (NFT) space so he opted for a more unique avenue to make his debut.
Complex reports that the Wu-Tang Clan veteran will be launching a comic series titled “Tical World” and introducing “Part 1: The Origin” as part of the anthology series through NFTs. The exclusive collection will feature original characters, animations, artwork, apparel as well as unreleased music from the rapper that will all be for sale. Additionally, a 3D-enabled digital animation detailing the origin story behind “Tical World” will be released in conjunction with New York artist Alex Smetsky.
Bitcoin.com shares that Method Man has teamed up with Flow Blockchain and Tunego to leverage their technology and introduce his NFT collection to the world. On Aug. 6, a Twitter account for “Tical World” presented itself to its online community tweeting, “Get Ready! Tical World is coming,” to which both of its partners also confirmed their collaboration.

Beyond cryptocurrency, Method Man has been keeping himself busy with other professional ventures in the entertainment world. When he’s not playing David MacLean on Power Book II: Ghost, the rapper is helming his creative production company, Six AM.
As previously reported by AfroTech, the music-turned-Hollywood star co-launched the company as a means to help amplify diverse storytelling that people of all ages can enjoy.
“We aim to tell authentic stories; to be ahead of our time and on time simultaneously,” is what the company’s website states, “and to engage an audience ranging from youth to the young at heart.”
In addition to this, the “How High” star naturally found his way into the cannabis game last year with his own socially-conscious brand also dubbed “TICAL,” according to the New York Post. The acronym that Method Man has grown so fond of using — which stands for “Taking Into Consideration All Lives” — was originally coined for his 1994 debut solo album. Now, he leans on it as an official part of his personal branding.
