Will March come in like a lamb, out like a lion this time around if rumors of Snoop Lion’s nee Dogg’s new video game are substantiated?
The multi-talented artist with as many different colors to his blunt papers as his career choices. He’s dribble-drabble-dabbled in pornography, weird high school themed collabs with Wiz Khalifa, and much, much more. True to the name of his upcoming album, Snoop has “reincarnated” himself a million times over.
He’s rebranded himself as a Lion and now “Snoop Lion” wants to put out a “rhythm-action, beat-matching combat experience” called Way of the Dogg that will feature an animated version of Lion-Dogg-Man doing kung-fu kicks set to a ’70s “blaxploitation” theme. The game will purportedly be produced by 505 Games and Echo Peak reports The Guardian.
“Everyone knows that Snoop is down with the biggest and best video games,” says the press release. “[I've dropped] hits on the soundtrack [and shown] 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.”
“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,” said Snoop about the Dogg versus Lion choice of monikers in his game. “It’s not just about who you are or where you’ve been but where you are headed to.”
This is what we think Snoop should do with this idea.
