Eminem x Snoop Dogg’s The D 2 The LBC, Bored Ape music video is nominated for Best Hip Hop in Video Music Awards 2022.
The American rappers collaborated in June and dropped a music video featuring their Bored Ape NFTs as avatars. The MV is highly interactive and was recognized as a revolutionary concept that combines technology, art, and music together as one.
On July 26, VMAs announced nominations for various categories, and Eminem x Snoop Dogg’s The D 2 The LBC is nominated in the Best Hip Hop category.
This is the first Bored Ape and NFT-based music video to be nominated for a music award, which makes it extra special. As soon as the announcement came out on Twitter, the rappers and Bored Ape fans celebrated the huge achievement.
Although Snoop Dogg and Eminem have individually been nominated for VMAs in the past years, this collaborative nomination is a new honor that will be remembered in music history.
Following the announcement, BAYC's official Twitter account retweeted the nomination tweet and congratulated the rappers for it. This is the first ever Bored Ape music video to be nominated and it deserves celebrations for the BAYC community as a whole.
BAYC team also encouraged the followers to vote for the nominated video to bag the win officially on VMAs to be held on August 28, 2022.
