Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Snoop Dogg rap released

Everybody run out and buy Tekken! It's got Snoop Dogg in it! Is that the reaction Namco is looking for? We're not entirely sure, but we did enjoy this little diddy from dee-oh-double-gee. This will be the song that plays in his themed stage in the game.

Yeah, that's right. Snoop Dogg sits in the back of the stage on a giant golden throne with scantily clad ladies dancing around him. In other words this level is set in Snoop's basement. Hardcore fighting game fans will also notice that one of the two gamers in the video is none other than famed competitive fighter, Justin Wong.

    I can't wait to play on that level...great level design.

    It's some of the best rapping Snoop has done lately, so I automatically enjoyed it. Beat is nice too. Was it one of the game's producers or some guy in America?

    Not sure whether this is the best or worst thing ever to happen to my favourite fighting-game series.

    Even though the song is pretty terrible, this is still good publicity for a game that is already pretty hype. And I'm always down to support a celebrity who's actually a fan doing his thing, because if you had the chance, you're telling me you wouldn't? And his level is befitting of him.

    American fighting game fans KNOW Justin Wong. He's our Daigo. It's perfect.
  • BladedFalcon - June 15, 2012 9:23 p.m.

    ...Except Daigo's better than him. And I'm pretty sure that even if Daigo Umehara isn't American, he's just as big, if not bigger in the competitive Fighting scene.
  • The_Ouroboros - June 16, 2012 1:14 a.m.

    Indeed, but Wong has been on reality shows in the U.S., as well as has represented America in the world fighting game scene for over a decade. Umehara is probably still more famous, though a lot of his most famous events are against Wong. Also he probably has contractual obligations with Japan. I currently know people who watched this video to see him in it, so in anything it worked. TL;DR - The Beast was busy.
  • BladedFalcon - June 16, 2012 5:43 a.m.

    Fair enough, you do give a good argument about why Daigo probably didn't appear in the add. And well, I personally don't like Wong, but his own fame and notoriety can't be denied. I can see people watching the vid solely for him.
  • The_Ouroboros - June 16, 2012 10:43 a.m.

    Yeah, I personally dislike Wong for a couple of reasons, but his celebrity in our circle is still unmistakable. Mike Ross, ComboFiend, could also have worked for the people in the know, but for Wong as a fan this still was unmistakably an incredible experience. Even if he does have a lock on the elitism that high level tourney players are notorious for.
  • BladedFalcon - June 16, 2012 11:42 a.m.

    Pretty much, I simply don't like him because he feels like an arrogant asshat, even if he has the skill to back it up. Compared to other pros like Daigo and Tokido, who are arguably better, and they don't feel nearly as cocky. But yeah... proof of Wong's fame is that I'm aware of him, while I honestly know nothing about Mike Ross and such.

    Mike "Mike Ross" Ross? Why, you simply must learn more. I don't mean he's the best American Street Fighter player, but he's the main reason I still even pay attention to Street Fighter. The stuff he does on Crosscounter, usually with Gootecks, is much more fun than the incessant flaming that goes on in a typical youtube video and the heavy stuff they talk about on Shoryuken.
  • BladedFalcon - June 16, 2012 5:02 p.m.

    I guess because i pay more attention to tournaments and not shows about fighting games? I am not saying he's not any good, but in the last EVO tournaments I've not seen him anywhere. Perhaps he simply doesn't participate there, but Wong, Daigo and Tokido does, what's why I know them and not about Ross.
  • The_Ouroboros - June 16, 2012 5:19 p.m.

    He's well respected for being a cool guy as well as a great player, who frequently places well in other Majors besides Evo. Although I understand that most people see Evo as the only big fighting game tournament that matters, that's not even close to the case. I think James Chen is in the video as well, and there's others whom I can't name. But I was digress, it was a mention of another player whom if they're appealing to the crowd they could have thrown in, but Wong is at least recognizable.
  • FOZ - June 18, 2012 5:20 p.m.

    He came in 4th at EVO 2010. Was a pretty big deal, apparently. He lost pretty early last year. But I think coming in 4th the year before that counts as more than participating.
  • FOZ - June 18, 2012 5:21 p.m.

    Wrong comment. Doesn't matter.
  • BladedFalcon - June 18, 2012 6:52 p.m.

    It is a noteworthy sport, but I believe you can excuse me for not always remembering who came in 4th place, right?
  • BladedFalcon - June 18, 2012 6:52 p.m.

    *spot

    Hrrrm, I'd honestly rather have the trademark awesome in game music that the last Tekken games have been notable for, rather than this. Oh well, amusing video at least. Though if they really wanted a pro competitive fighter that people would notice, they should have gotten Daigo instead.
