XSET and Tee Grizzley announced Partnership on Tee Grizzley's Grand Theft Auto Roleplay Server

XSET the world's fastest-growing gaming and lifestyle organization, announced today an exclusive partnership with Detroit rapper Tee Grizzley. As a part of this partnership, Grizzley and XSET will join forces to invite ex-convicts to join the Grizzley Gang and play in Grizzley World RP, Grizzley's customized Grand Theft Auto roleplay server. The partnership was announced on Tee Grizzley's Grand Theft Auto Server, making history by being the first talent that has ever joined a gaming organization live in-game.

"I'm excited to join XSET and take Grizzley Gang Gaming to the next level," said Grizzley. "I've always loved gaming for fun, but now it's so much more than that. I've seen how this industry can really change lives and I can't wait to provide more opportunities for people who have faced similar challenges and adversities as I have."

Falling in love with games like GoldenEye 007 and Tony Hawk's American Wasteland, gaming has been part of Grizzley's lifestyle since childhood. In the gaming world, Tee is best known for streaming Call of Duty and his own customized Grand Theft Auto roleplay server, Grizzley World RP on his Twitch channel. In Grizzley World RP, the rapper takes on numerous roles, from the head of Grizzley Gang to a gang unit detective cleaning up the streets. His server features everyday characters played by everyday people, with the occasional drop-ins by friends like Anthony Davis , who is a part of Grizzley World . Since building the world in 2021, Grizzley World RP has climbed to the top 10 most popular GTA V RP servers worldwide, and recently served as the platform to announce Grizzley's last album, Built for Whatever.

Similar to his music, Grizzley shares his compelling backstory and raw authenticity in his streams, using it as a way to connect with fans and share a part of his life with them off the stage. But what he values most about the gaming scene is the opportunity it provided him and others - giving them a new and fun way to make money while staying out of trouble and off the streets. Grizzley has already gifted a gaming PC for his friend who was recently released from jail and under house arrest, to encourage him away from going back to old ways and is now a full-time gamer and streamer as well.

"XSET is about pushing boundaries and redefining the world of gaming," said XSET CBDO and co-founder Clinton Sparks . "We are excited to welcome Tee Grizzley to the set to help give a second chance to those who need one, as well as continuing to introduce gaming to those unfamiliar with the opportunities it provides. XSET is building the worlds greatest culture club and Tee with his music, gaming and entrepreneurial spirit is an amazing representation of what that means."

With the announcement of this partnership comes the drop of the first of three installments of Tee Grizzley x XSET merchandise. Within Tee Grizzley's GTA server will be a merchandise store where players can go and purchase the commemorative shirt to wear while in Grizzley World RP. The proceeds from the sales of the first installment of t-shirts will be used for giving personal consoles to ex-incarcerated inmates who have a passion for gaming and are looking to start a positive future.

Revolutionary Metaverse Launch from UFO Gaming

UFO Gaming the pioneering blockchain gaming platform, unveiled its long-awaited Metaverse with thousands of visitors in attendance.

While many companies are building Metaverses following Facebook's rebrand to Meta, UFO Gaming was among the early pioneers that announced audacious plans on building one long before this - and it has now finally come to fruition.

UFO Gaming is the first initiative to establish a unique multichain Metaverse with concrete advantages for gamers, providing them with digital assets such as NFTs in the form of in-game items, virtual land, and monetary value. $UFO holders may take advantage of a variety of perks, including dividends and community participation.

During the launch, UFO Gaming orchestrated an Easter Egg Hunt, Team AMA, Streamer Takeover, and Staking dApp Launch, all within their Metaverse event allowing their community to play and win prizes.

UFO Gaming enclosing their gaming platform within their Metaverse was a strategic move; recent analysis by McKinsey&Co (2022) projects that the Metaverse market will top $50billion by 2026.

The rise of ambitious crypto projects such as UFO Gaming is important in driving Metaverse growth and adoption. UFO Gaming utilizes virtual reality technology combined with the power of the blockchain to create uniquely immersive gameplay and future value for the $UFO token. The Metaverse market is expected to be driven by the increasing adoption of blockchain technology, the growing popularity of crypto assets, and the rise of UFO Gaming (CoinTelegraph, 2022 1 ).

Mckinsey surveyed over 3,400 consumers and executives on the Metaverse to find the vast majority believe that it will become increasingly important in the years to come. While Metaverse adoption is in its early stages, it is clear that it has the potential to revolutionize the way we live, work, and play. Those who don't start planning for the Metaverse now may find themselves at a serious disadvantage in the years to come. One way to get involved is to research early pioneers in the Metaverse space such as UFO Gaming (McKinsey&Co, 2022 2 ).

About UFO Gaming
UFO Gaming (UFO) is a revolutionary blockchain gaming platform giving players the power to earn cryptocurrency while playing games and to own their in-game items as NFTs. While launching their own games, UFO is developing its own Metaverse which invites users to meet, interact, and jump into its play-to-earn games.
