Big Boi, BOB

Hip-hop and gaming have long gone hand-in-hand.

So it comes as no surprise that two of the biggest names in rap, Big Boi from OutKast and B.o.B. are teaming up for Electronic Arts' co-op action game Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel

The duo not only teamed up to collaborate on the game's official theme song "Double or Nothing," which will be released as a single early next year, but they appear in AOT as well.

Big Boi and B.O.B. play T.W.O. operatives Charles "Chuy" (pronounced "Chewy") Rendall and Anthony "Baker" Barnes, respectively, whose job is to help players on their mission taking down one of Mexico's most dangerous drug cartels. 

Gamers are dropped into this A.O.T. universe as either Alpha or Bravo, mask-wearing mercenaries who must blast their way through drug-torn Mexican streets with all kinds of advanced weaponry to fight for justice.

For the MCs, the chance to see their digital selves in action was too good an opportunity to pass up.

"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," said Big Boi.

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

Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel hits stores on March 26, 2013, and will be available for PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360.
