The streaming service Spotify Island launches a new themed digital experience called Planet Hip-Hop which is now live on Roblox. The virtual music destination will feature upcoming female rapper Doechii and others. 

According to the streaming service, the virtual experience aims to give a younger generation of hip-hop fans new ways to connect with their favourite music artists. 

The Plannet Hip-Hop is set to offer players a lot of activities such as virtual merchandise, customise vehicles in the “Speed Shop,” dance on a floating dance floor, create hip-hop beats powered by Sound-trap and more. 

“We wanted to create a space inspired by the newest era of hip hop, exploring how the current generation of artists and fans are redefining what the genre looks like and sounds like,” Steven Conaway, Senior Art Director at Spotify. 

Metaverse is becoming a reality, here at home we saw national banking institution Nedbank launch their 1st ever virtual world initiative ‘ubuntuland’ in partnership with Africacare.
