Eminem and Snoop Dogg Star as Characters from BAYC
A little over a year and a half ago, it seemed as if Snoop Dogg and Eminem, both of whom are Dr. Dre’s proteges, had some unfriendly emotions against one another. Now, the world-famous rap group has released a music video in which they appear in character as Bored Apes.
Eminem announced through Twitter on June 24 that a new song titled “From The D 2 The LBC” will be released the following day. The post included the artwork for the song, which was drawn in the manner of a comic book and featured two cartoon monkeys symbolizing Snoop Dogg and Slim Shady as well as their affiliation with Bored Ape Yacht Club. Almost immediately after that, he sent out another tweet promoting the video.
The latest music video features animated versions of Eminem and Snoop Dogg performing as gorillas. The 1st
Amendment and Young California, together with the Bay Area Youth Coalition, worked together to develop it. In the refrain of the song, the two of them take turns yelling out the names of their respective hometowns, which are Detroit and Long Beach:
“Put your doobies high if you dwell in 213, let’s see them blunts raised / Whether you east side or west side of the 313, let’s watch them firearms blazing,” the song says. “Put your doobies high.”
Eminem and Snoop Dogg both Performed at Ape Fest
Em and Snoop raps their rhymes while transforming into animated versions of themselves in the manner of Bored Ape. Recent live performances by the duo at Ape Fest 2022 included sneak previews of the tune. Due to the fact that both Eminem and Snoop have already dabbled in the realm of nonfungible tokens (NFTs), it is important to point out that they are already aware of the subject matter.
Eminem, whose true name is Marshall Mathers III, spent $462,000 to become a member of the Bored Ape Yacht Club after purchasing an NFT from the OpenSea marketplace. Along with other “industry VIPs” such as Justin Bieber, Bruce Willis, and Ashton Kutcher, Snoop Dogg was revealed in April to be a key investor in MoonPay, a business that provides on- and off-ramps for financial transactions. MoonPay and Snoop Dogg’s Death Row Records have formed a partnership in order to establish an NFT marketplace.
