Hip-hop star Snoop Dogg is in the midst of composing a new song - for a computer game.

The BEAUTIFUL rapper will record the main track for the PLAYSTATION 2 game TRUE CRIME: THE STREETS OF LA, sampling Marvin Gaye's classic Dance With Me.

The soundtrack for the game will feature new music from Ice Cube's rap collective WEST SIDE CONNECTION, JA YO FELONY, Warren G and DIZZY BONE.

The Neptunes will provide a backdrop to the game's car chases, shootouts, on-foot pursuits and hand-to-hand combat.

The game will debut for PlayStation on 4 November (03).
