Snoop Dogg and Eminem, two iconic rap artists, will perform live at the MTV Video Music Awards this Sunday. BAYC NFT holders can watch this Bored Ape-inspired event live only on the Otherside metaverse.
Eminem and Snoop Dogg, two NFT-friendly rap icons, will perform their Bored Ape track on the Otherside metaverse transformed stage on August 28.
The Otherside collaborates with Yuga Labs’ BAYC and video gaming behemoth Animoca Brands.
Snoop Dogg & Eminem at the 2022 annual VMAs
The global rap icons will perform “From the D 2 the LBC,” their latest collaborative single, live on the Otherside metaverse. The Bored Ape-inspired single is the two artists’ first collaboration in 20 years and will be presented in the ‘Best Hip Hop’ category.
Eminem and Snoop Dogg hold BAYC NFTs. Snoop Dogg recently released the single EDM, which features Esther Anaya in an animated video with Bored Apes and other NFTs. This Sunday, the global rap icons plan to give the Web 3 infrastructure mainstream exposure through their live metaverse performance at the VMAs.
Surprisingly, the VMAs team has added a new category to its annual awards called “the Best Metaverse Performance.” Creating a new metaverse category indicates that the metaverse deserves more attention. Other VMA nominees include Justin Bieber, the Rift Tour (featuring Ariana Grande), and Twenty-One Pilots.
The VMAs anticipate that the much-anticipated metaverse live event will increase viewership for its flagship show. In 2011, the VMA reached an all-time high of 12.4 million viewers. However, since then, the number of viewers has steadily declined. The 900,000 viewers currently tuning in live to watch the awards on MTV represent a drop in viewership for the eighth year in a row.
Overview of the Otherside Metaverse
The Otherside is a gamified interoperable metaverse venture currently in beta launch. In addition, the virtual world provides “Otherdeed NFTs,” which represent digital ownership of land plots in the metaverse.
According to the litepaper, Otherside will support feature interoperability, allowing Otherdeed owners to bring their collections and NFTs to life within its metaverse. Otherdeed NFTs have surpassed $1 billion in sales since their debut in June, according to CryptoSlam data.
Tamadoge is an additional metaverse-related platform that we recently reviewed. Tamadoge has already raised over $8.5 million, with only 40% of its presale token still available.
