During Sunday’s award show in New Jersey, rap legends Eminem and Snoop Dogg brought their recent collaboration “From the D 2 the LBC” to life through the metaverse.

The performance began with Eminem, 49, sitting on a black leather couch alongside Snoop, 50, who was holding an oversized lit marijuana joint prop and pretending to smoke it.

Appearing shocked, Eminem asked his longtime collaborator, “Yo, hold on. Oh my God, bro! How’d you get that in here?”

“I got the connections,” replied Snoop.

“Yo man, I feel like you’re getting me high again, bro,” said Eminem. “That s—‘s the size of my hand, dawg. That s—‘s gonna make me relapse.” (The rapper is 14 years sober.)

After getting pseudo-stoned, the pair was transported into the metaverse, where cartoon avatars of the rappers smoked more marijuana and performed the track in a colorful fantasyland complete with Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT characters — which also featured in the “From the D 2 the LBC” music video.

Halfway through the performance, Snoop and a fur coat-donning Eminem found themselves back on the VMAs stage to finish performing the track.
