Would the spark that will rekindle the NFT fire come from Snoop and Eminem? Because whenever non-fungible tokens find themselves in a dead end, they always find a solution. Hadn’t they released a clip with the image of the Bored Ape Yacht Club last June when the ApeCoin was going through a crisis? Last Sunday, these legendary rappers were talked about again. And you certainly know how tough the situation is for NFTs right now.
NFT lovers Eminem and Snoop ignite the
We know that in the rap world, no one can match the love of Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr. and Marshall Bruce Mathers III for the NFTs and the metaverse. For them, non-fungible tokens present themselves as a GREAT opportunity to seize. This is why Eminem started selling NFT very early, before embarking on the Bored Ape adventure.
Snoop Doggy Dogg, too, is not one to miss opportunities. Cointribune has closely followed its recent investments, to mention the purchase of virtual land in The Sandbox, the cultivation of digital herbs in the metaverse, the launch of NFT collection or the announcement of an album including NFT music with Steve Aoki.
Recently, the two have released a music video featuring their respective Bored Ape,” From The D 2 The LBC ». An opus with 47 million views on YouTube that was able to bring the ApeCoin back to life as soon as it was released.
But these legendary rappers do not think to stop there in their promotion of the BAYC. Indeed, they gave show breathtaking last Sunday on the occasion of the MTV Video Music Awards 2022.
Obviously, this surprised the audience since their peers (Nicki Minaj, Flo Milli …) performed there physically. For Snoop and Eminem, there is no way to miss such an opportunity to better promote NFTs and the metaverse.
The two men first chose a black sofa to start with. Snoop Dogg well posed with his oversized joint suddenly embarked the audience in a teleportation to the metaverse. And it was there that they began to embody their own respective BAYC avatars.
A well-prepared performance
We must not forget that ” From the D 2 the LBC “signifies the end of the arguments between Eminem and Snoop Dogg. Because long before the release of this clip, these two American rappers have separately pursued their own path following a disagreement over a downgrade of Eminem in the Top 10 rap legends.
It should also be noted that the two have not been on the stages of the VMAs for ages. Their last joint appearance was in 1999, while Eminem did not appear there until 2010. To say that Snoop had not received an invitation to animate the audience of the same event until 2005.
Eminem and Snoop, who had just buried the hatchet, therefore preferred to strike hard with this staging worthy of their new comeback. They will have to be proud of this achievement.
To be able to perform like this, they benefited from the help of Yuga Labs and MTV News. In fact, the script was blown by Otherside, a metaverse platform owned by Yuga Labs. By doing this, and highlighting the Bored Apes, Otherside will certainly gain popularity with the American public.
That’s why they thanked Eminem and Snoop for their performance during the VMA.
However, the hybrid live of ” From the D 2 the LBC “performed by Snoop and Eminem was sanctioned only with a nomination for the best hip-hop song. The two could not match Blackpint to the point of seeing the nomination for the best performance of the metaverse go to Blackpink. Note that the Video Vanguard Award was attributed to the artist who performed ” Do We Have a Problem “, Nicky Minaj.
A new lease of life for Web 3?
Admittedly, Eminem and Snoop did not collect the maximum number of trophies during this performance, but we would agree to say that their approach was highly appreciated by the Bored Ape community. This is how new assets such as NFTs and cryptocurrencies will gain popularity. AND as a corollary, their values will increase once again.
