On August 28, the two rap icons Snoop Dogg and Eminem performed their new single song, “From The D 2 The LBC,” live in the guise of their Bored Ape NFTs exclusively on the Otherside metaverse.

The live performance event that brought together celebrity artists, including Justin Bieber, Rift Tour (featuring Ariana Grande), Twenty One Pilots, and others, took place at MTV’s Video Music Awards (VMAs).

At the time, the live metaverse performance saw rappers changed by the transformative powers of web3 from fresh-and-blood human characters into animated versions of their Bored Apes NFTs. Snoop Dogg turned into BAYC #6723 while Eminem changed into his BAYC #9055.

What Went Wrong?

The worst part with the performance, apart from the fact that their Bored Apes are dead amid crypto winter, was that they looked pathetic and awful. Snoop Dogg and Eminem’s Apes featured dead eyes, a passionless aspect that no one expected from the faces of the two wealthiest and most famous artists in the world.

The animated portions of the video took place within the Otherside metaverse, a web3 platform established by Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT collection maker Yuga Labs. The animated video showcased Snoop and Eminem base-jumping off towering monoliths.

Moreover, the video showcased the two artists addressing thronged masses of robots while rapping about the many properties of weed. During the performance, their faces were deadpan like this was their 30th year in a dead-end job. However, not the entire performance went wrong.

Snoop Dogg & Eminem’s Best Performances

The best part of the live metaverse show was when two men stood at the top of an obelisk, with Eminem rapping his songs. Throughout the whole section, Snoop Dogg was waving his arms, wearing a stare as if he had remembered his boyhood love.

In the meantime, although Snoop Dogg and Eminem performed below the expectations of many crypto enthusiasts, their performance currently ranks one of the best metaverse performances in 2022.
