The video which is a blend of different generations is a partial animation. The hip-hop stars occasionally transformed into the Bored Ape characters in the video. It is the duo’s first collaboration after about a year and a half of bad blood between them.
The viral video is now streaming on various platforms and it is also available for download. Both hip-hop legends are already familiar characters in the crypto space.
Earlier in April, Snoop Dogg alongside other industry legends became a major investor in MoonPay. MoonPay also created a Non-fungible Token marketplace in partnership with Snoop Dogg’s Death Row Records.
The songwriter has also planned to launch an NFT-themed restaurant. The songwriter also partners with the Sandbox metaverse game for its Alpa season 2.
Eminem became a member of the BAYC after he acquired his “EminApe” for $462,000. His NFT collections include Superlative Apes and several Lil Baby Doodles X.
BAYC announced a 2-day Merch drop for its community to celebrate the new song by the hip-hop duo. Starting today June 24, collectors can acquire the drops using ApeCoin. BAYC also advised its community to be wary of potential scams.
