Snoop Dogg Coming to Rock Band

Acclaimed musical celebrity and DoggyFizzle Televizzle star Snoop Dogg will see tracks from his "impressive catalogue of hits" appear as downloadable content for Harmonix's music game franchise Rock Band, studio owner MTV has announced.

No other details, such as specific track names or a release date, were provided. It is likely that the content will be timed to help promote Snoop's upcoming "Malice In Wonderland" album.

The revelation comes in conjunction with a new marketing deal that will see Snoop Dogg host a new variety show, "Dogg After Dark," on MTV.. In addition, MTV will help distribute and promote the "Malice in Wonderland" album due later this year.

"We felt it was the right time to let Snoop Dogg back on MTV so we could continue to run thangs with music, movies, DVDs and bring Hip-Hop to Rock Band," said Snoop Dogg.

"Dogg after Dark is the only nightclub tv show hosted by you know who," he added. "So take a journey with me through the mind, body, soul and musical mindstate of the most prolific, authentic game spitter. And tha sh*t is funny, so show me da money!"
