“You-all ready to take a trip with me?” legendary rapper L.L. Cool J asked the audience at the MTV Video Music Awards 2022, as he introduced two other hip-hop giants.
In one of the most eagerly anticipated performances of the night, the scene opened with Eminem and Snoop Dogg chilling on a black leather sofa. Snoop takes a big drag on the biggest joint, ever.
“How’d you get that in here,” Em asked.
Snoop responds, “I got the connection.”
They both drift off into the metaverse, transforming into animated characters, for what Variety said was billed as a” first of its kind performance” of their single “From the D 2 The LBC.”
The duo is in character as their Bored Ape NFTs, a virtual gaming world that is not yet fully developed but is designed to use NFTs and a cryptocurrency called ApeCoin, Pitchfork reported.
This performance marks both Em and Snoop’s first time performing at the annual event in over a decade. They joined Mary J. Blige, Dr. Dre, 50 Cent and Kendrick Lamar for the 2022 Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show.
