After more than a decade, Eminem and Snoop Dogg returned to the MTV VMAs stage on Sunday night. The duo teamed up for a trippy metaverse performance of their latest collaboration, “From the D 2 the LBC,” which they released back in June. The performance was set inside Yuga Labs’ upcoming metaverse game “Otherside.”
“VMApes this Sunday — We’re glad to support @SnoopDogg & @Eminem who will be performing their new single featuring their Apes and @OthersideMeta,” the game’s official Twitter account tweeted on Aug. 25. The song’s accompanying music video also scored a nomination for best hip-hop video.
Their VMAs performance comes six months after the two took the stage alongside Kendrick Lamar, Mary J. Blige, Dr. Dre, and 50 Cent for an epic Super Bowl halftime show. During the performance, Eminem made a powerful statement as he took a knee in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.
Eminem was also featured as part of the “Elvis” movie soundtrack, which debuted in June. The 49-year-old rapper joined forces with CeeLo Green for a rendition of “The King and I.”
