“I’m always on the lookout for new ways of connecting with fans.”
The rapper, known for his hits including ‘Drop like it’s hot’ and ‘Who am I?’, already has an estimated $17 million in Ethereum-based NFTs, including nine of the legendary CyrptoPunks.
Now, he’s taking things a step further by not simply minting his own NFTs but recreating his entire mansion — and will be hosting parties for other Sandbox users to join in. The first of which is a limited ‘Snoop Dogg Private Party Pass’. It allows users access to concerts, events, Q&A sessions as well as dedicated NFT drops.

Come September 30, The Sandbox plans to host a land sale for vacant plots next to Snoop Dogg’s house in the metaverse. So, technically — at least in the virtual world — fans can buy in to be the rapper’s neighbour.
His real house is located within the gated community of Country Estate on the eastside of Los Angeles in Diamond Bar, California. He bought the mansion back in 1998 for a reported $720,000 and has lived there ever since.
The house takes up around 2.8 hectares of land in the real world and has a square footage of 4,000. It is unclear right now if Snoop also plans to recreate ‘Tha Chuuch’, a two-story home on the same street as his mansion, which functions as his ‘ man cave’.
