This was a given considering RZA has a Twitter account and likes to talk, but today it’s been confirmed that the producer-rapper will appear as an in-game character in the upcoming DJ Hero 2. He’s the final character announced for the music game, which also features Deadmau5, David Guetta, DJ Qbert, and Tiesto.
The Wu-Tang founder mixed and produced two exclusive tracks for the title: LL Cool J’s “I Can’t Live Without My Radio” mixed with Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five’s “The Message,” and Damian Marley’s “Welcome To Jamrock” mixed with Walter Murphy’s “A Fifth of Beethoven.” RZA is also quoted as saying some stuff in a press release Activision sent out today, and I urge you to read this in you head (or out loud) in RZA’s voice.
“I’m very excited to be involved with DJ Hero 2. As both a DJ and gamer from an early age, the game combines two of my passions,” he said. “I loved working with the team and am excited for the fans to hear the two brand-new mixes I put together just for this game. Bong bong!”
DJ Hero 2 is out on October 19; Activision recently revealed all of the tracks that will make the game disc, which tops 100 songs. Bong bong!
