Rock Band DLC: Uh… Snoop Dogg?!

It’s an actual thing that is actually happening — Snoop Dogg’s music is coming to Rock Band next week.

Eight of of Mr. Calvin Broadus’ hits will be coming to the game, available for download from the Rock Band Store. These versions were evidently produced specifically for Rock Band.

  • “Beautiful”
  • “Drop It Like It’s Hot”
  • “Ridin’ In My Chevy”
  • “Sensual Seduction”
  • “Snoop’s Upside Ya Head”
  • “Tha Shiznit”
  • “That’s Tha Homie” *
  • “Who Am I (What’s My Name)?

Tracks are $1.99/160 MS Points/200 Wii Points per track, or $13.49/1080 MS Points for the full “Snoop Dogg Pack 01.” Here’s what it gets confusing, so takes notes…

The individual tracks will be available for download on all platforms (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii) next week as individual song downloads; you’ll only be able to get it as a pack next week on the Xbox 360. Oh, and “That’s Tha Homie” won’t be available for download on the PS3 until September 14 in North America, and September 15 in Europe. On September 21 in North America and September 22 in Europe, the entire “Snoop Dogg Pack 01” will be available for download on the PlayStation 3.

Confused? Bottom line is that if you have an Xbox 360, you can get everything next week and in a nice package if you want. If you’re on another platform, just fire up your console and see what’s available, because keeping track of all of this is too much work. Fo’ shizzle.
