Activision has recruited rapper Snoop Dogg to perform voiceover work for the next Call of Duty: Ghosts downloadable content. As detailed in the video above, the famous rapper’s voice will appear in an upcoming voice pack launching April 22 on Xbox Live with other platforms to follow. The voice pack will sell for $ 3.

Call of Duty: Ghosts developer Infinity Ward wrote the lines for Snoop Dogg, but he says he was able to add his own flair, or “Snoopisms” as he calls them, to the phrases. Some of these lines include “Squad member active: A brother from another mother” and “Homies out the joint. It’s party time.” You’ll also hear his voice say “Don’t stop. Cap ‘em and shank ‘em” and “Ballistic vest ready. Those are some fine-ass threads.”

Here’s what Snoop Dogg had to say about the partnership. “What interests me most about the project is that my voice could be connected with a game that’s so hip and so hood. It says alot. It’s associated with greatness,” he said.

Also on April 22, Activision will launch a “Drill Instructor” voice pack voiced by R. Lee Ermey, who you probably know as the drill sergeant from Stanley Kubrick’s 1987 film Full Metal Jacket. Various character and weapon specialization packs are also launching April 22. You can read about all the new microtransactions coming to Call of Duty: Ghosts at the game’s website.

Snoop Dogg is no stranger to video games. He launched his own video game, Way of the Dogg, last year and even paid homage to Pokemon in one of his new music videos. Oh, and there was also that time Ubisoft recruited him for a weird video to announce the release date for Rayman Legends.

EA Sports UFC will release on June 17, according to a promotional poster spotted by a user on NeoGAF.

If the poster is correct, Electronic Arts’ mixed martial arts game will also include a playable Bruce Lee as a preorder bonus. It seems probable, as EA has also been teasing a “mystery fighter” for the game, and if you’ll look at his partial image on the official website, you’ll notice he’s wearing yellow shorts with a black strip, the same colors of Bruce Lee’s iconic tracksuit from his final movie, Game of Death.

It’s not clear if preordering is the only way to get Bruce Lee. The poster simply states that preordering will get you “instant access to ‘the father of mixed martial arts.’”

EA Sports UFC will launch on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. For more on EA Sports UFC, check out GameSpot’s feature on the game’s level of realism.
