The performance mixed in-person performance with digital technology.
Eminem and Snoop Dogg teamed up for a special “metaverse-inspired” performance at the MTV VMAs 2022 tonight (August 28).
The rappers were among a raft of performers at the ceremony, which is being co-hosted by Nicki Minaj, Jack Harlow and LL Cool J at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.
Eminem and Snoop Dogg shared a version of their recent collaboration ‘From The D 2 The LBC’ that saw them mix in-person performance with digital technology. The appearance was organised in partnership with Yuga Labs – an NFT and cryptocurrency company best known for the Bored Apes project – and was inspired by “the world of the Otherside metaverse”.
The performance began with the pair sitting on a couch, with Snoop smoking a comedically large joint. As Eminem said he felt like he was getting high just from sitting next to him, a green swirl appeared on screen, taking viewers into the rapper’s head where he and his collaborator became digital avatars and figures from Bored Apes.
