Snoop Dogg is one of the most popular artists involved in the NFT and metaverse. He owns the property in the virtual world. One of his fans paid 450,000. dollars, for a nearby plot to become its neighbor.
Metaverse is a digital space where the real and virtual world converge into a vision straight from science fiction. Since Mark Zuckerberg announced work on his own version of the metaverse, more companies have started joining this speeding train, filled to the brim with NFT, cryptocurrencies and other virtual items.

As the metaverse grows in popularity, celebrities are also making their way into the game hoping to cash in on the rising insanity. One of them is Snoop Dogg who turned into a technology investor. Last month, the rapper launched his own metaverse called Snoop Verse on The Sandbox.
Snoop has built a virtual mansion for himself in his metaverse. Immediately after the residence was built, one of the rapper’s fans using the pseudonym P-Ape paid 450,000. dollars to become his neighbor in the Snoop Verse. In response to the purchase, Snoop tweeted: “Won’t you be my neighbor?”
The rapper first encountered metaverse in September 2021 after he announced that he would be building his own virtual world on the Sandbox platform. In a press release, Snoop said, “I’m always looking for new ways to connect with fans, and what we’ve created at The Sandbox is the future of virtual meetings, NFT drops, and exclusive gigs.”
