Snoop Dogg to star in 505 game Way of the Dogg

Hip-hop icon and name-changing spliff champion Snoop Dogg/Snoop Doggy Dogg/Snoop/Snoop Lion is to star in a new 505 game.

It’s called Way of the Dogg (presumably pronounced ‘dawg’?). It’s a rhythm-action combat game. It’s coming out on Xbox Live, the PlayStation Network and mobiles. It’s about fighting and stuff.

And of course it will have music from the stoned songster himself.

Everyone knows that Snoop is down with the biggest and best video games whether it’s droppin’ my hits on the soundtrack or showing the world I can go toe- to-toe with the best fighters on the street but Way of the Dogg is the first true gamification of my music,” Mr Dogg confusing said of himself, partly in the third person and partly in a language we’re not able to comprehend.

It’s the way you live, it’s the way you do what you do and captures the beat, the rhythm and the spirit of my music. It’s not just about who you are or where you’ve been but where you are headed to. This game shows how we evolve as individuals and they’ve incorporated the journey of my own personal reincarnation as Snoop Lion into my character, the environments and the path that players have to follow.”


There’s a new album or something as well that’s out next month or something. Oh, and a film. That’s probably also about how we evolve as individuals. Or just about rapping and smoking and fighting and shit.
