Outkast’s Big Boi is adding another string to his bow, by featuring in a videogame, along with his friend and collaborator B.o.B. The two of them will reportedly feature in the Electronic Arts shoot-em-up entitled Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel. It’s the third release in the successful Army of Two franchise.

According to Los Angeles Times, Big Boi will star as Charles “Chuy” Rendall and B.o.B. will be Anthony “Baker” Barnes, both agents, who appear in the game to help players in their quest. Sadly, players won’t be able to control Big Boi and B.o.B’s characters in the main issue of the game but apparently, anyone who pre-orders the game will receive an additional mission in their package, which will allow them to do so. BigBoi and B.oB. have also written the theme tune for the game, entitled ‘Double or Nothing.’

In addition to his foray into the world of video games, Big Boi will also be releasing a new album on December 11. Entitled Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumours, it will be released via Island Def Jam. The single ‘Mama Told Me,’ featuring Kelly Rowland, was described by The Los Angeles Times as “As catchy as a classic Outkast collaboration.” The reviewer added “Mama Told Me' features a Kelly Rowland hook that weaves through a wobbly, melodic rhythm. Big Boi illustrates why he's one of the most mellifluous rappers in hip-hop by offering floating verses that move through the measures like sing-along bouncing balls."
