News: Fo shizzle.
Almost two years ago, Harmonix and Snoop Dogg announced that a Snoop Dogg Track Pack was coming soon to the Rock Band Music Store. It looks like they'll finally make good on their promise next week.
Starting next week, September 7, PS3, Wii and Xbox 360 gamers will be able to download the following Snoop Dogg songs for $2 each:
"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)?"
All of the songs will be a part of the Snoop Dogg Track Pack 01, which will be able to be downloaded from the Xbox Live Marketplace for 1,080 Microsoft Points ($13.50). PS3 owners should take not that "That's Tha Homie" won't be available to download until September 14, which is why the Track Pack also won't be available to PS3 gamers until then.
Naturally, Snoop himself had the last word:
?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. ?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?!??
We hear you, Snoop, we hear you.
