Charity NFTs supported by rappers: The Painted House

The Painted House, an NFT platform founded by rapper and entrepreneur Ja Rule and his longtime business partner, Herb Rice, has announced the launch of its first NFT collection called ‘Black Is Beautiful’, sales of which will go to support historically black universities and colleges

“We entered the Web3 NFT space a year ago after first attending the annual NFT NYC. It was warm and social, but there were no people of color. We wanted to bring more people of color in space,” Rice said in a recent interview with Billboard.

The Black Is Beautiful collection contains 1,000 NFTs to collect, celebrating every figure and movement in pop culture. The Painted House will donate 10% of all sales to five educational institutions: Hampton University, Morgan State University, Jackson State University, Spelman College and Morehouse College.
