Just last week, Eminem and CeeLo Green released the song “The King and I” from the soundtrack to the new “Elvis” biopic, now the rapper is causing a musical stir again this week. Together with Snoop Dogg he released the single “From The D 2 The LBC”.

    In the song, which is musically heavily influenced by Eminem, the two hip-hop veterans rap about their respective hometowns of Detroit and Long Beach. The chorus says: “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.

    Eminem and Snoop Dogg turn into animals

    The song was released alongside a music video directed by James Larese. It begins with a scene where Snoop Dogg and Eminem are recording a song together in a music studio. However, Snoop Dogg smokes such a huge joint that Eminem keeps coughing: “I can’t even breathe.”

    The video that follows is a lengthy drug trip in which the two rappers morph into animated animals in the style of Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC)’s NFT collection. The crypto beasts have generated tremendous hype in the United States. In addition to Snoop Dogg and Eminem, many other American stars such as Justin Bieber, Timberland and Madonna have also acquired rights to the blockchain animals.

    But there was also recently reports, according to which the Bored Ape Yacht Club is a Nazi troll club brimming with far-right symbols, alt-right quotes and troll mechanisms. As a result, many prominent BAYC members have removed their NFT avatars on Twitter and other social platforms. Snoop Dogg and Eminem don’t seem to think much of the club’s criticism – they recently unveiled the song at BAYC’s Ape Fest.

    The two rappers were last on stage together at the halftime show of this year’s Superbowl – alongside Dr. Dre, Mary J. Blige, Kendrick Lamar, Anderson Paak and 50 Cent. Snoop Dogg’s latest album is called BODR (Back on Death Row) and is the artist’s first album on his old Death Row Records label in 26 years.
