Snoop Dogg had gaming fans screaming when he recently announced a virtual land auction on the widely played The Sandbox.
The Sandbox, a virtual metaverse world that allows users to create and play games within a game, has the US rap legend hooked.
The game allows for people to purchase and develop land in order to sell it off for more money. Snoop is ready to rake in the virtual green!
