Snoop Dogg's Tekken Tag 2 rap vid is so unnecessary

I still can't get over the fact that Snoop Dogg has a themed level in the upcoming Tekken Tag Tournament 2. It is truly one of the most bizarre bits of news to come out of E3 2012. Aside from his claims that he's long been a fan of the Tekken series, exactly what is ol' Calvin contributing to the game? Katsuhiro Harada must be a big fan of the West Coast scene.

In addition to having his own pre-order-exclusive battle arena, Snoop recorded a new song called "Knocc 'Em Down" that plays in the background. Above is the full music video that was played on loop at Namco Bandai's booth. As I mentioned in the header, it's pretty unnecessary.

This is hardly what I'd call Snoop's finest work. It's quite bland, to be honest. Uhhh... he works in a bit of wordplay in the line "Tekken a second for me to blow your mind," which is cool, I guess. And he's gone totally Rasta, so there's that as well. On the plus side, the video features a number of fighting game champs and community members.

So... yeah.
