Do The Math will be released on the Near protocol with three different Audio NFT packages available (limited quantities) starting September 17th, 2021.
Listening parties have been scheduled on Clubhouse and Spaces for the week of September 12th in which Symbolik and C-Sol will discuss the process behind the production of the Audio NFT as well as the details regarding the different packages.

The collaboration between the Digital Creator/Emcee known as Symbolik and Producer C-Sol has resulted in an Audio NFT offering that fuses various artistic elements, bringing to life the collectible, all-original, digital, musical masterpiece entitled Do The Math.
The track is 3 minutes and 35 seconds of hard hitting, up-tempo boom-bap, coupled with intelligent word play as Symbolik delivers lyrical food for thought. Navigating an aggressive bassline, vibrant piano loops and bright, soothing synths he references the current state of the world and the parallels between that and the perceived decline in consciousness within Hip Hop culture.
The NFT drops September 17th and consists of the audio track, 360 Still Motion art and a full-length 360 video. This digital packaging of the audio NFT is unique as it provides collectors with various artistic, original visuals that compliment the music. 360 Still Motion is a treatment developed by Symbolik in which he takes a still image frame from his 360 video, processes it, creating a scrolling effect in which the image is in constant motion. There will also be limited personalized versions (dubplates) of the track which will be made available for a few lucky supporters. There will be 3 different NFT packages set up at various price points.
‘It’s a great time to be an independent artist’ says Symbolik discussing the emerging NFT community. ‘NFTs are creating a lot of options, a lot of opportunities that weren’t there before for artists . With these NFTs, the artist is really only limited by their own creativity, their own imagination. It’s giving artists the control to deal directly with their audience. We’re working with the Near protocol. This is a crypto currency that is geared towards creatives. It’s a community of artists, musicians, creatives, a whole network that is thriving, building, creating and supporting one another. It’s amazing.’
Clubhouse and Spaces listening parties have been scheduled for the week of September 12th in which Symbolik and C-Sol along with special guests will premiere the track and discuss everything that went into putting together the music and visuals behind the NFT. They will also discuss how collectors can get their personalized version of the Audio NFT. More details regarding the NFT drop will be available shortly.
