Eminem watches Snoop Dogg smoke a giant joint before they team up for a metaverse-inspired performance at the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards

Eminem and Snoop Dogg took a trip to the metaverse during their performance at the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards, which took place at the Prudential Center in New Jersey on Sunday.

The Lose Yourself rapper, 49, began the performance of their newest track, From the D 2 the LBC, by sitting on a couch while watching his 50-year-old collaborator smoke an oversized prop cannabis joint.

The pair then entered a metaverse-inspired virtual reality and were seen rapping in several animated forms before finishing the song in front of the event’s adoring crowd.

After seeing the size of Snoop Dogg’s joint, Eminem joked: ‘Yo, hold on. Oh my God, bro! How’d you get that in here?’

The Drop It Like It’s Hot rapper then nonchalantly replied: ‘I got the connections.’

His collaborator then stated that he was getting a contact high from the smoke and made a reference to one of his older albums.

‘Yo man, I feel like you’re getting me high again, bro. That s***’s the size of my hand, dawg. That s***s gonna make me relapse,’ he stated.

After going through a psychedelic tunnel, the two changed into digital versions of themselves while Eminem performed the song’s first verse.

The pair transformed for a second time when they assumed the forms of a pair of Bored Ape NFT-like characters.

The rappers were also seen performing inside of a pinball machine, an apparent reference to the cover of the Not Afraid rapper’s new greatest hits album, Curtain Call.

The two rapped their way through several other settings and avatars before they were sent back through the tunnel.

Eminem and Snoop Dogg eventually came back to reality, and woke up on the couch on which they started their performance.

The rappers were joined by a group of musicians before they finished the track’s final portion.

The former of the pair is the second most-nominated performer in the history of the VMA’s, falling only behind Madonna.

His first award was for Best New Artist, and it was given out in 1999, when he was put up for three other awards.

The performer went on to receive nominations in numerous other categories over the years.

Eminem’s most recent win occurred in 2014, when editor Ken Mowe was given the Best Editing award for his work on the video for the rapper’s track Rap God.

The musician’s newest nominations were given out in 2020 for the video for his song Godzilla, on which he collaborated with the late Juice WRLD.
