Is the Bored Ape Yacht Club responsible for this collaboration? Hip hop legends and worldwide icons Snoop Dogg and Eminem join forces once again for the single “From The D 2 The LBC.” The video is basically a BAYC ad and the duo premiered the song at Apefest, the Bored Ape Yacht Club multi-day party that was part of the NFT.NYC conference. This is a huge win for the BAYC, at a time when the NFT collection lost 60% of its value in a flash. The last time we saw this duo collaborate was on the track “Bitch Please II,” from Eminem’s 2000 outing The Marshall Mathers LP. Besides Snoop Dogg, that track features their mentor Dr. Dre, Xzibit, and the late Nate Dogg. After that, the legend says that Eminem’s camp denied a request for collaboration from Snoop and the pair never worked together again. Until now. Did the Bored Ape Yacht Club accomplish that? Eminem And Snoop’s Bored Ape Yacht Club Story It’s worth noting that both Eminem and Snoop Dogg come from Dr. Dre’s lineage, so a collaboration between both artists makes all the sense in the world. They are also both part of the Bored Ape Yacht Club. Approximately six months ago, Eminem paid $425K for a BAYC specimen inspired in him. At the time, NewsBTC reported: “The NFT, named “EminApe,” depicts Eminem’s iconic Bored Ape figure wearing a khaki army cap and a gold chain necklace, both of which he frequently wears in real life. BAYC member GeeGazza sold the digital artwork for 123.45 ETH, which is around $450,000 USD. In November 2021, GeeGazza tweeted, “I still think Eminem is destined to buy my @BoredApeYC one day.” Took too long to reconnect with @snoopdogg– you know we had to make a movie! https://t.co/087W2OZJOI #FromTheDToTheLBC #curtaincall2 @BoredApeYC pic.twitter.com/k443JqXHON — Marshall Mathers (@Eminem) June 24, 2022 For his part, at approximately the same time, Snoop Dogg got a full set and announced “When I APE in I APE all the way in!!.” A full set, for those not in the know, consists of a Bored Ape, an M1 and an M2 Mutant, and a Bored Ape Kennel Club with similar characteristics. In Snoop’s case, those were a military helmet, leopard skin, and a pink and fluffy garment. At the time, NewsBTC reported on the story behind the purchase: “It all came from a deleted tweet. What did it say? We wouldn’t know. However, NFT strategist Just1n.eth brought another rapper into the conversation. “He needs to link up with Waka Flocka to talk about the NFT collection that he should be looking into!” And Waka Flocka went straight to the BAYC. “Uncle Snoop you need a Ape mane!!! Join the yacht club.” Eminem. Snoop. From the D 2 the LBC. Out now. https://t.co/fcZqaniRxQ pic.twitter.com/bmTpKNXtjq — Snoop Dogg (@SnoopDogg) June 24, 2022 The Video, The Song, The Premiere The psychedelic video mixes video of Em and Snoop in the studio with Bored Ape Yacht Club-inspired animation. It was directed by James Larese. They premiered it at Apefest, an all out party that featured performances by hip hop legends like Lil Wayne, Bun B, The Roots, Future, and of course Eminem and Snoop Dogg. The videos abound. Check this one out: WORLD PREMIERE: Snoop & Eminem show their new song featuring at ApeFest @BoredApeYC @SnoopDogg pic.twitter.com/8lLVY9mRng — cr0ss.eth @ NFT NYC (@cr0ssETH) June 24, 2022 And this one: What the actual fuck? @SnoopDogg @Eminem @BoredApeYC #apefest pic.twitter.com/1KDZ5rxHGc — Leonardo Viti (@leovitiart) June 24, 2022 The Bored Ape Yacht Club team will also sell merchandise related to the single, but no one knows what it actually looks like. “Snoop x Eminem merch drop pushed. We’ll tweet here with timing updates,” they announced through Twitter. APE price chart on Coinbase | Source: APE/USD on TradingView.com This is not Snoop Dogg’s first musical collaboration with the Bored Ape Yacht Club. The rapper appeared in Colombian producer and singer Esther Anaya’s single “BAYC,” a dance music track that sounds like this: Last but not least, NewsBTC has to point out that Eminem and Snoop appeared on stage together earlier in the year at Dr. Dre’s presentation at the Super Bowl Halftime Show. So, maybe the Bored Ape Yacht Club is responsible for this single, but the two artists probably had already squashed their beef. Featured Image: Screenshot from the video | Charts by TradingView
Despite the bear market in Bitcoin and altcoins, the industry’s builders continue to build for a brighter future.
THORChain has been trading in the green and recovering faster than larger cryptocurrencies. The development team behind this project, Nine Realms, announced the launch of their mainnet after 4 years of development and research. Related Reading | Cosmos (ATOM) Price Swells 12% – Can It Breach Resistance? At the time of writing, THORChain (RUNE) trades at $2.30 with a 14% and 35% profit in the last 24 hours and 7 days respectively. The market seems to be positively reacting to the announcement. As part of the announcement, crypto users on the Binance exchange will be able to participate in a promotional campaign and earn part of a total $1 million price. Via an official post, the team behind THORChain said the following celebrating the project’s major milestone: Mainnet marks the achievement of a fully functional, feature-rich protocol with a large ecosystem and strong community. It has been a long time coming and the community is very excited about this important milestone. Before mainnet, THORChain was operating with the Multichain Chaosnet (MCCN) to enable users to provide cross-chain liquidity. This allowed the project to battle-test its features and migrate from a centralized to a decentralized and community-driven platform, according to the official post. As part of this deployment, the project launched its native token RUNE and has called for all token holders to swap their non-native RUNE for the former asset. Once 67% of the network runs on native RUNE, the protocol will implement a “Killswitch” and “kill” the non-native asset under the BEP2 standard. As NewsBTC reported, 4 months ago THORChain released a highly expected feature, synthetics assets. This allowed users to gain exposure to the price of large cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH), by trading with their THORChain versions called sBTC and sETH. This was just one of the milestones reached by the project on track to its mainnet launch. The aim is to make the platform a decentralized, secure, and liquidity-efficient protocol in the decentralized finance (DeFi) sector. Who Is Buying The THORChain (RUNE) Rally? Data provided by the team behind the project claims THORChain has seen $9.2 billion in total trade volume, with a total of around 10 million transactions and around 72,000 unique swappers. The protocol has around $250 million in total value locked (TVL) making it one of the largest in the DeFi sector. In their next step of development, which includes making the platform more transparent and decentralized, the team behind the project said: Centralised points of failure must be removed as they are a risk to the future of the network. The largest remaining centralised point is Treasury management. Treasury plans to hand over full control to the community soon. Further data provided by Material Indicators (MI) records an increase in buying pressure from investors with over $1,000 to $10,000 bid orders (red and green on the chart below). Retail investors (yellow on the chart) have been selling into the current price action while whales (brown and purple) have been inactive.
