Link Media Partners, a business development and marketing services firm for the music industry, today announced it has joined up exclusively with the Estate of Ol’ Dirty Bastard to release the ‘Dirty Coin’, creating approved cryptocurrency and blockchain technology-based products for the Estate’s future music projects. The coin will initially be used by the ODB Estate to fund projects for emerging hip-hop talent Young Dirty (Barsun Jones), Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s son.
With the Dirty Coin (Symbol: ODB), fans will have access to shows, tours, exclusive merchandise, and music from the former Wu Tang Clan rapper as well his progeny. The ODB token will go live on TAO Network (Symbol: XTO) and be traded on AltMarket, the exclusive cryptocurrency partner of Link Media Partners.
“Music thrives creatively and financially when it’s in the hands of the artist themselves. By removing the price tag of experimentation, we’re able to deliver for both the artist and their fans,” said Bryce Weiner, CEO of AltMarket.
“Bitcoin is the future of money and all the fans want a part of the future of Ol’ Dirty Bastard. In the past, Dad’s music was ahead of its time, so it makes sense that he would be ahead of the technology of money now,” said Young Dirty.
Link Media Partners will work with Young Dirty develop his own music and infrastructure to produce and release music without a record label. His projects will be announced pending the Initial Artist Offering (IAO) in Summer 2018.
Young Dirty is currently in the studio recording his first album, which is slated for a Fall 2018 release. This will be followed by a North American tour with Digital Underground later this year.
“My career has been spent helping artists build and own as much of their careers as possible, so it is an absolute honor to be partnered with Young Dirty and the ODB Estate as we discover and implement exciting new ways for artists to connect with, and empower, their fans,” said Hakim Draper, CEO of Link Media Partners.
