Snoop Dogg headed to Rock Band

Rapper to bring Doggystyle swagger to MTV's music game

Songs from rapper Snoop Dogg's back catalogue will be released for MTV's Rock Band series.


It's unclear which of Snoop's tunes will be released, or in what form they'll hit Rock Band - most likely they'll be launched as DLC, but there's a chance they could ship with a new game. So all we know is that they're coming at some point.

Perhaps it'll be some tracks from his new album, Malice In Wonderland, which is scheduled to be released later this year.

Personally we'd like to see some of Snoop's earlier work. Gin and Juice, Murder Was the Case or Lodi Dodi from Doggystyle would be cool.

The Rock Band move is part of a wider deal Snoop (real name Cordozar Calvin Broadus) has agreed with MTV, which will also see the rapper front a new TV variety talk show.
