Through the Otherside metaverse, Snoop Dogg and Eminem performed their most recent song, “From The D 2 The LBC,” live during last night’s VMAs. The two rappers’ comprehensive VMA performance included references to marijuana, their Bored Ape avatars, and even Otherside’s Koda NFT avatars.
This is also the first time MTV has featured the Metaverse and the first time two well-known artists have used their BAYC NFTs in a live performance. In fact, the NFT community agrees with the VMA in describing the performance as “simply legendary”!
How Did the Bored Ape Winners Perform at the VMAs?
Hip-hop legends Snoop Dogg and Eminem performed their most recent track, “From The D 2 The LBC,” together on August 28 at the MTV Video Music Awards.
Eminem and Snoop Dogg were smoking on a couch when the show began. The two eventually float toward the metaverse. Fans might view the digital avatars’ performances there in a vibrant setting.
The rappers eventually transform into their Bored Ape NFTs as they explore the Otherside metaverse. Giant BAYC avatars were dancing on the VMA stage they shared to the beat of the dark track.
As a result, MTV and Yuga Labs collaborated to create the special performance. Of course, the ground-breaking programme has given the NFT market more attention than ever.
Why Did Snoop Dogg and Eminem Include the Otherside Meta?
The rappers make overt references to the Otherside metaverse during a portion of their live performance. We may picture, for instance, Eminem and Snoop Dogg coming into three enormous Koda avatars while travelling around the Metaverse.
In a nutshell, Kodas are the primary beings responsible for the Otherside virtual world. These enigmatic species use their ability to maintain the integrity of their microverse. The plot claims that Kodas have determined that Bored Apes and a few other treasures, mostly from Yuga Labs, are welcome to join the Otherside as well.
Thus, it should come as no surprise that Eminem and Snoop Dogg combined their BAYC avatars with glances from the Otherside meta. An unforgettable combination of remarkable NFT projects is the end outcome.
What Was the Response to Snoop Dogg and Eminem’s NFT Performance?
Initially, hip-hop fans were ecstatic to see the two legends perform live once more. Eminem and Snoop Dogg are sharing the stage for the first time in over 20 years, which is unexpected. This time, their passion for NFTs may play a role in their cooperation.
After all, one of the largest NFT collections available is owned by Snoop Dogg. Eminem is the proud owner of an NFT from Bored Ape and the ENS address Eminem.eth.
The rappers collaborated to produce an amazing video for their song “From The D 2 The LBC” using the BAYC IP commercial rights. When the song made its debut at Apefest back in June, the NFT community was naturally hooked.
At this year’s MTV VMAs, Eminem and Snoop Dogg’s BAYC-themed video was nominated for Best Hip Hop Video. Overall, the live performance gave NFT creators a lot of new access points to global popular audiences.
