During Miami NFT Week, the event that preceded Bitcoin Miami, the biggest cryptocurrency event in the world, American rapper French Montana announced that his next album will be a non-fungible token (NFT) that will be used in their own play-to-earn metaverse.
According to Radio Caca, the metaverse will be a 2D play-to-earn game integrated with the Radio Caca (RACA) metaverse platforms, specifically Metamon Worlds. The metaverse will be called 2DMMontega and is expected to release around July 2022.
Additionally, according to the artist, the album will contain 2D characters from the game.
“This is the first NFT collection that combines music, visual arts, games and the metaverse. NFTs are a big deal for artists. I finally own 100% of my music,” the rapper said.
On NFTs, Montana said he sees great potential in NFT technology in the music and other creative industries and that NFTs are a great way to confer ownership of intellectual property.
“My New Year’s resolution this year was to own everything that bears my name. I want to make sure my family benefits from everything I create, not from a record label,” he said.
According to him, NFTs also allow artists to create a deeper connection with their biggest fans, to engage more with them and to get to know them.
“I don’t want to denigrate a platform, but if you go to sites like Instagram, the connection you get there is pretty superficial. NFTs allow you to build a real community,” Montana said.

NFTs are the next music trend
The rapper said he sees NFTs as a natural continuation of technology trends the music industry has been going through. The metaverse is not a digital world separate from the physical world but a world that people have to adapt to this revolution.
French Montana said:
“When I started, DVDs were the only game in town. Soon YouTube became a big business. After that, the same thing happened with Instagram and TikTok. “I live in the real world, say- they. The universe, not the metaverse,” say some critics. But when I talk to younger people, like my nephews, they’re much more open. You have to constantly adapt to new trends so you don’t fall behind .
According to the rapper, 10,000 physical copies will also be released along with the hand-signed CD. When it comes to the metaverse game, $25 million is invested in creating the game.
The developed NFTs will also have different functions in 2DMMontega and rewards in Metamon Island and Lost World, both produced by Radio Caca.
Following Montana’s announcement, an official Radio Caca Medium post said the Metaverse will be a move-to-win, where players are rewarded for spending 30 minutes in-game.
About 2DMMontega, Radio Caca also stated that the game will have NFTs called Kevin badges as the main token generated by the game, in addition to houses, cars and other items in the NFTs, which the developers say will be the next investment trend: collecting in the metaverse.
“In the real world, most urban youth go into debt with mortgages for homes and loans/leases for their cars. Over time, the house needs repairs and the car wears out, the tires get changed and possibly new – an endless cycle of cost and debt.In the Radio Caca universe, owning a house or car for their avatar characters will only grow in value and create a freer future as those houses and cars are assets that can be passed down from generation to generation and can increase in value, as discussed on Radio Caca’s recent post here.
Metaverse on Ethereum
The metaverse will be built on the Ethereum blockchain and will support all smart contracts running on ERC-721 and ERC-1155. According to the team, if the user has an NFT embedded in this model, it can be embedded and used as a playable item in the metaverse.
NFTs will be used to their full potential in 2DMM, representing all of your in-game assets, be it pets, 2D homes, or various tools. NFTs will even unlock a custom view to experience unique visual effects for any type of NFT.
Going into more detail about the game, the developers reveal that there will be three different stories with three game views. To interact with these resources, 1 million NFTs of 2D houses with different types of rarity between castles, mansions and villages will be sold. In them, owners can decorate their space, display NFT art, and host events.
The Kevin Badge NFT will, as a feature, be a reward for every user who deposits an NFT from a verified collection in the new 2D metaverse. Any user with a Kevin badge will have access to airdrops, private parties in the metaverse, and exclusive access to whitelists, among other benefits.
2D houses can also be earned by playing Metamon Island.
