Big Boi and B.o.B. to appear in video game ‘Army of Two: Devil’s Cartel’

OutKast’s Big Boi and Strange Clouds rapper B.o.B are set to appear as characters in the new video game Army of Two: Devil’s Cartel by gaming giant Electronic Arts.

The southern rappers will be featured in the video game as Charles “Chuy” Randall (Big Boi) and Anthony “Baker” Barnes (B.o.B), who are hired operatives working along side main characters Salem and Rios to take down the Mexican drug cartels.

“Video game and music, they definitely go hand in hand, being a gamer for most of my life, you know, having kids that play games now, it definitely makes you your kids hero,” said Big Boi about his participation in the project.

Along with their character roles in the new shooter game, the duo also recorded a track titled “Double or Nothing,” which will be the theme song for the game which is slated for release in early 2013.
