Eminem and Snoop Dogg are going from the D to the LBC to the VMAs.
MTV partnered with Yuga Labs for the metaverse-inspired performance, which is based on Otherside, a virtual gaming world that is being developed as an online multiplayer game. Yuga Labs is also responsible for launching the Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT collection, featured in the music video for “From the D 2 The LBC.”
This will mark Em’s first performance at the VMAs since “Not Afraid” and “Love the Way You Lie” in 2010. Snoop most recently teamed up with Diddy in 2005 to perform “Juicy” and “Warning.”

Westside Boogie Talks About Eminem
One of the rappers Eminem presented with Shady Records is Westside Boogie.
Raquel Harper recently spoke to Westside Boogie and asked the Compton native about the “best gift” he’d ever gotten from Eminem.
“Performace-wise, he told me to stop stage-diving, because I can get sued,” said Westside Boogie. “I just like jumping into the crowd. It’s my thing. So I don’t know if that’s necessarily good advice, but advice he gave me.”
Boogie signed to Shady Records in 2017. Released Everythings for Sale in 2019 and MORE BLACK SUPERHEROES in 2022. And Boogie and Em joined forces for “Rainy Days.”
There are important names in Boogie’s 12-track studio album. Soulja Boy, Snoop Dogg are some of these names.
Detroit legend recently collaborated with CeeLo Green for a song on their project “Elvis”. The song was released on digital platforms on June 16.
