While I’ve never been that much of a fan of rapper Snoop Dogg, his appearances and connection to the upcoming Namco Bandai fighting game Tekken Tag Tournament 2 gives him just a teensy bit of relevancy for me to write about him. The popular figure, who recently rebranded himself as Snoop Lion, was involved in not only performing a music video for the game entitled “Knocc Em Down,” but is also featured in one of the game’s stages.

Additionally, today we got an email from Namco Bandai stating that the music video, which released in June, held the first hints on the recent Snoppformation.  If anything, it’s another reason to post the music video, right? Tekken Tag Tournament 2 will be released on September 11th of this year for both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Check out Snoop’s video of “Knocc Em Down” below, and look for some references to lions at around the 2:20 mark.
