We are thrilled to announce a partnership with Platinum-selling, Grammy-nominated rapper, songwriter, producer, community activist, and entrepreneur Royce da 5'9".
Along with performing during half-time at the Detroit Pistons game, Royce 5'9" is celebrating 313 Day by announcing his new virtual world, The Heaven Experience. Built with Passage, the community-focused world ties closely to his upcoming EP project, The Heaven Experience: Lost Sessions, which drops on Friday, March 31.
"I have been searching for a better way to connect with my community for a while, but existing platforms haven't lived up to my expectations. Passage delivers on all fronts.”
— Royce da 5'9"
The Heaven Experience is a virtual space built for the community. In it, fans can connect with Royce and his team, access exclusive events and content, and engage with the hip-hop community.
The Heaven Experience doubles down on Royce 5’9”’s commitment to community, offering a unique, immersive space to authentically engage with fans, artists, and the community. The initiative follows a successful 60-second sell-out of his first NFT offering, which gave fans a percentage of streaming royalties from the critically acclaimed single, “Caterpillar,” ft. Eminem and King Green.
"Collaborating with Royce and his team has been a dream. Royce has a real story to tell and a clear desire for authentic connection with his community. This is what Passage was made for, and the Heaven Experience will bring fans closer than ever to Royce and the Heaven Studios family."
— Lex Avellino, Founder & CMO of Passage
Fans can participate by buying the Heaven Experience Pass, which will offer access to the Heaven Experience throughout 2023.
Heaven Experience passholders will receive a variety of benefits, including: connecting directly to Royce and his team, real-time engagement with the community and artists, as well as access to exclusive songs, performances, interviews, VIP events, meetups, apparel, and more.
Passes go on sale April 4.
