Eminem and Snoop Dogg brought their unique styles to the 2022 VMAs and took fans to the metaverse during the performance! The iconic duo performed their song “From the D 2 the LBC” Sunday night, August 28, at the MTV VMAs. The entire performance seemed like a big marijuana-induced trip, but in the best way possible.
At the very start of the performance, we see both Eminem and Snoop Dogg sitting on a couch. Of course, Snoop is smoking a ridiculously sized joint, but the main highlight of the performance is when the two go into the metaverse. It’s a sight not many fans thought they would see, but it’s something everyone will remember. Bored Ape Yacht Club, an NFT collection, confirmed on its Twitter account that Snoop Dogg and Eminem performed “their new single featuring their Apes and @OutsideMeta.”
Eminem and Snoop Dogg’s “Joint” Performance
After the due became their ape selves, they hop onto the MTV logo and begin to do their thing. We saw the metaverse versions of Detroit, Michigan, Long Beach, California and the Prudential Center, where the 2022 VMAs took place. As soon as the two came down from their metaverse high, Slim Shady jokingly asked Snoop “This MTV?” Snoop would respond to him by saying “C’mon we got a show to do!” After this, it was all fun and games as the two finished out their performance, entertaining the crowd. As they performed, however, there were projections of their Ape characters surrounding the stage, along with rainbows and floating mushrooms. Somehow it was everything you would expect from a performance with Eminem and Snoop Dogg, but it was completely unexpected too.
“From the D 2 the LBC” was released back in June as part of Eminem’s second greatest hits album. It released as the second single to the album, “Curtain Call 2.” This collaborative performance between the two legendary rappers marks their first performance together at the VMAs since 1999.
