Snoop Dogg & GaryVee Speed Through The Cosmos In Animated Music Video: Please Take A Step Back
The Legendary Emcee Snoop Dogg and Acclaimed Entrepreneur GaryVee Present “Please Take A Step Back” NFT with Generative PFPs Inspired by the Video.
A One-Of-A-Kind Web3 Project, Accessible to Attendees of VeeCon 2022, “Please Take A Step Back” Urges Listeners to Take Stock and Give Thanks For All They Have. Snoop Dogg and GaryVee share the animated music video for “Please Take A Step Back,” their collaborative single, and the first official single released by GaryVee, out now via Death Row Records.
Animated and directed by @VeeFriends, the psychedelic video for “Please Take A Step Back” brings Snoop’s lyrics to life in vivid color, underlining the song’s inspirational message about cherishing our time on Earth. As the two entrepreneurs cruise the cosmos in a custom coupe, they transform into Bored Apes and Black Cats and encounter a host of other characters on the way.
Characters from the video inspired the design of Snoop Dogg and GaryVee’s “Please Take A Step Back” NFT, exclusively available to attendees of VeeCon 2022, which was minted last week. Holders of the “Please Take A Step Back” NFT will each earn a one-of-one profile pic inspired by the music video’s design. Every generated “Please Take A Step Back” token will unlock the ability to participate in new Burn Island: Trivia competitions, where “Please Take a Step Back” NFT holders can test their knowledge of VeeFriends and Snoop Dogg for a chance to win NFTs including Bored Ape Yacht Club #1452, GaryVee’s own prized token, with an estimated value of 80 ETH.
“The idea of taking a step back has been something that’s been woven through my content for 15 years,” says Gary Vee. “Every time I say ‘patience’ in my content, that’s saying take a step back. Every time I’m saying ‘be empathetic and care about the other person’, every time I’m saying ‘be self-aware, know yourself.’ What I’m really saying to people is take a step back, take a breath, take a beat, and figure out who the f*ck you are.”
Close friends for years, Snoop and GaryVee came up with the idea for “Please Take A Step Back” at the inaugural VeeCon 2022, where Snoop participated in a panel conversation about business, innovation, and collaboration with GaryVee. Snoop and Gary teased a potential Web3 project, available only to the attendees of VidCon 2022, and “Please Take A Step Back” is the result. Fans who hold the “Please Take A Step Back” NFT will also be eligible for a once-in-a-lifetime chance to join GaryVee and Snoop Dogg at the Atlanta stop of The High School Reunion Tour (w/ Wiz Khalifa) on August 9th. 10 winners will enjoy the ultimate insider’s experience, enjoying an intimate pre-show gathering with Gary, riding together to the concert in style, and experiencing the show with front-row seats and backstage access.
