Snoop Dogg will host Spike TV’s second annual Video Game Awards on December 14. The awards show will pay homage to games, designers, animators, musicians and performers in all areas of the gaming industry.
“Snoop is an icon and the perfect example of how Hollywood and the music industry have embraced the video game genre and catapulted it into pop culture,” said the awards’ co-executive producer Casey Patterson.
Snoop has appeared in “True Crime: Streets of L.A.” and “NBA Live 2003.” He’s also a part of the electronic brawl-fest “Def Jam: Fight for NY,” due in stores September 20.
