The prominent rap stars Eminem and Snoop Dogg released a new music video that showcases the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) non-fungible token (NFT) collection. The duo’s latest single called “From the D 2 The LBC” debuted at this year’s Apefest, an annual gathering for BAYC and Mutant Ape Yacht Club (MAYC) owners.
From the D 2 the LBC: Eminem, Snoop Dogg, and Bored Apes
The new Eminem and Snoop Dogg music video has been trending on Youtube and at the time of writing, the video has gathered 8.85 million views. The official music video for the “From the D 2 The LBC” single highlights the popular BAYC NFT collection. Snoop and Eminem have animated their Bored Apes for the video which was shown at the Apefest event. Apefest had a number of high-profile music performances from Lil Wayne, Future, LCD Soundsystem, The Roots, Haim, and Lil Baby.
While the new single features a whole lot of spliced BAYC imagery, the song is mostly about smoking cannabis. Snoop Dogg owns BAYC 6,723 and Eminem owns BAYC 9,055 and both were purchased for six figures per NFT. The song and video on Youtube have been very popular and there’s a large number of comments from listeners. “It’s great to see these two legends squash their beef and now make drop some joints together for us,” DJ Skandalous wrote in the comment section. As far as the media is concerned, publications like the Verge downplayed the video and said:
Snoop Dogg and Eminem’s Bored Ape music video is here to try and sell us on tokens.
Apecoin Down 82% From ATH, BAYC NFTs Still Command the Top Floor Values
The Snoop and Eminem video follows the recent lawsuit filed by the BAYC creators’ Yuga Labs against the artist Ryder Ripps and several associates. Furthermore, the crypto token apecoin (APE) has increased in value by 15% this past week and 21.6% during the past two weeks. However, APE’s current $4.76 value at the time of writing, is 82.2% lower than the all-time high (ATH) of $26.70 per unit.
BAYC NFTs have the largest floor price at 89.49 ETH or $106,289 for the least expensive BAYC on the market today. There are no BAYC NFTs that sell for under six figures but MAYC’s floor value is 17.57 ETH ($20,868) for the least expensive MAYC on the market today. During the past seven days, Bored Ape Yacht Club 8,522 sold for 233.33 ether or $262,958. Bored Ape Yacht Club 2,896 sold for 166 ether or $205K and BAYC 7,381 was sold for 147.25 ether or $182K.
