Electronic Arts announced last week that hip-hop stars Big Boi and B.o.B are not only providing a theme song for Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel, but starring in the game itself.

The two stars are teaming up in real life for The Devil’s Cartel‘s official theme song, “Double or Nothing,” but will also be partnering in-game.  The duo will play the roles of T.W.O. operatives Charles “Chuy” Rendall (Big Boi) and Anthony “Baker” Barnes (B.o.B), “helping players blast their way through Mexico’s most dangerous cartel,” in the words of EA.

Look for Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel in March 2013 on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. We have a chance to preview it at tomorrow’s EA Asia Pacific Showcase, so check back soon for our impressions.
