In the latest semi-animated music video titled From The D 2 The LBC, Eminem and Snoop Dogg remarkably resemble Bored Apes.
Snoop Dogg and Eminem, both of whom are Dr. Dre’s proteges, looked to have animosity against one another barely a year and a half ago. The renowned rappers are now featured in a new music video as Bored Apes.
On June 24, Eminem tweeted that a new song titled “From The D 2 The LBC” would be made available. The post included the single’s comic book-style artwork, which featured two cartoon monkeys that represented Snoop Dogg and Slim Shady as well as their affiliation with the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC). He quickly sent out another tweet promoting the video in response.
The two hip-hop icons have come together to share a brand-new music video with their fans. This time, they highlighted the nonfungible token (NFT) collection Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC), which was created on the Ethereum blockchain.
The new music video, “From The D 2 The LBC,” features Snoop Dogg and Eminem as animated gorillas. It was created in association with the BAYC by 1st AMENDMENT and Young California.
The refrain of the song features the two of them praising their respective hometowns of Long Beach and Detroit:
“Put your doobies high if you reside in 213, let’s see them blunts raised / Whether you east side or west side of the 313, let’s see them guns blaze.”
The focus of the video then switches to Em and Snoop, who transform into animated, Bored Ape-style avatars as they sing their verses. The duo recently performed the song live at Ape Fest 2022.
It should be mentioned that Snoop and Eminem have already dabbled in the NFT scene and are therefore already familiar with it. Eminem, also known as Marshall Mathers III, paid $462,000 for an NFT on the OpenSea NFT marketplace and joined the Bored Ape Yacht Club.
Along with “industry VIPs” like Justin Bieber, Bruce Willis, and Ashton Kutcher, Snoop Dogg was revealed in April as a significant investor in MoonPay, an on- and off-ramp service. In order to establish an NFT market, MoonPay also collaborated with Dogg’s Death Row Records.
