Snoop Dogg has been dabbling in the metaverse for some time now. However, he just made his biggest web 3.0 play to date. The famed hip hop artist is launching a collection of playable NFT avatars for the Sandbox. Here’s what’s going on:

Snoop Dogg Drops Sandbox Avatars

According to various reports, Snoop Dogg is dropping 10,000 avatars for the Sandbox, one of the most popular blockchain-based metaverse game experiences. The avatars will be sold as NFTs today, February 22, 2022, just in time for players to get their hands on them prior to Alpha Season II. 

About the Snoop Dogg NFTs

According to the reports, the NFTs included in this collection are programmatically generated voxelated NFTs. The collection includes a massive list of over 150 traits. 

Known as Doggies, each unique avatar can be used to play in Alpha Season II as well as to attend events, concerts, complete quests, hang out with friends, and explore the metaverse. With the avatars, Snoop Dogg fans can go to metaverse concerts with their Doggie avatars or potentially appear in music videos that are being recorded entirely in the Sandbox. 

There are seven rarity tiers in the collection, including Human, Blue, Alien, Zombie, Dogg, Robot, and Golden. Two thirds of the NFTs in the collection will be common while a third type of uniquely designed pieces in the collection will come with special traits and features to make them stand out in the crowd. 

The three sets included in the collection include:

  • Dope Avatars. A set of dope, fresh, and funky Doggies that have been designed by the teams at the Sandbox and Snoop Dogg. Each item in the collection is one of a kind. 
  • Classic Avatars. The classic collection features avatars that were created based on the history of Snoop Dogg. For example, one of the avatars is based on Snoop’s 2007 anthem, providing a seductive look and the retro 80’s vibe. 
  • Signature Avatars. Finally, the signature edition features avatars that look like snoop has been returning from an interstellar journey! 

How to Get a Doggie

If you already have a Snoop Dogg NFT, like a Snoopverse Early Access Pass, Snoop Party Pass, JADU Jetpack, JADU Hoverboard, SupDucks, or FLUF Burrow, you’ll be able to mint the Doggies 24 hours before the release. For all others, the release will take place on February 22, 2022. 

Each Doggie will come with a mint and sale price of 150 SAND. 

The Bottom Line

The bottom line here is simple. Snoop Dogg is no stranger to the metaverse, and with his drop of Doggies, he’s digging his roots deeper and deeper into the industry; a plus for Snoop himself and metaverse enthusiasts alike.
