RZA isn't the only rap legend touting his old school video game interests this week. Snoop Dogg has announced his own new game contribution in the form of an eight-pack of tracks for Rock Band titles, and like RZA, he touted his roots as a longtime player.
"I consider myself an OG gamer, and to be chosen as the first hip hop artist to appear in Rock Band...well, it doesn't get any better than that, ya dig?!?" Snoop said in a press release. "I know my fans gonna get down with tha Pound with this one and tha youngsters really gonna realize who started this gamer ish, u hear me?!?"
Here's what he's decided to put on the market for 160 MSP, 200 Wii Points or $1.99, depending on what your Rock Band platform of choice is:
-"Drop It Like It's Hot"
-"Ridin' In My Chevy"
-"Snoop's Upside Ya Head"
-"That's Tha Homie"
-"Who Am I (What's My Name)?"
They'll all be available individually for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii on September 7 with the exception of "That's Tha Homie," which will arrive on the PS3 September 14. You'll also be able to pick them up together for $13.49 or 1,080 Microsoft Points as "Snoop Dogg Pack 01." And they've all been "specifically" reproduced just for Rock Band games, so don't go searching around for them elsewhere, because you won't find them.
