Big Boi and B.O.B to Appear in Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel in Song and Character

The Outkast rapper Big Boi has both worked with the creme-de-la-creme of hip hop and pop, but now he is spreading his wings in the medium of... video games. 

Big Boi has already appeared as a playable character in one game, Def Jam: Icon. This was, as I'm sure you can tell by the name, a hip hop inspired game, so it wasn't exactly far removed from Big Boi's comfort zone. This time around though, he and pal B.o.B. have collaborated both in and outside the game, reports E! 

The pair have recorded the official theme song for the game 'Double Or Nothing' (in-keeping with that 'two' theme of the game title.) But they will also be appearing in the game, as characters that will help out the players: "operatives Charles 'Chuy' (pronounced "Chewy") Rendall and Anthony 'Baker' Barnes." The task for players being to "[take] down one of Mexico's most dangerous drug cartels." 

Big Boi loved the collaboration, saying: "Partnering with B.o.B on the Army of Two The Devil's Cartel theme song and inside the game has been a blast and I can't wait to load it up, hear the song and see myself in the game."

And B.o.B. added: "I love action games, and getting a chance to star in one is definitely something I'm excited about."

The game is set for release in March 2013, for PS3 and Xbox 360.
