Rapper Snoop Dogg, or more recently Snoop Lion, has released a new music video that pays homage to Nintendo's iconic Pokemon series as well as classic side-scrolling shooters. The video, for "Get Away ft. Angela Hunte" from his new record Reincarnated, was produced by Major Lazer and features a Pokébattle between the two.

After the pair do battle, they team up in a side-scrolling shooter sequence to take down waves of enemies. All of this takes place as the song's thumping bass line powers through.

Snoop Dogg is no stranger to video games. Most recently, he was featured in a strange trailer where he announced the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 release date for Rayman Legends. He is also the focus of Way of the Dogg, a rhythm-action combat game released last year on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, iOS, and Android.
