De La Soul Appearing In Angry Birds Because That's Just The Kind Of World We Live In These Days

by Jeff Cork on Jul 12, 2016 at 05:30 AM

Angry Birds Action!, the pinball spinoff to Rovio's popular series, is getting a big update. Considering the subject matter, it only makes sense that it's called the Big Pig Update. What seems a bit stranger is the inclusion of venerable hip-hoppers De La Soul. They've not only written a song for the game, but they're appearing in it as characters for a limited time. 

You can hear a snippet of the new track, "Action," in the clip below. You'll also see a bunch of pigs and birds and general anger. If you like what you hear, you may want to check out De La Soul's next album, which is out August 26. Or listen to this classic track from the Judgment Night soundtrack, which seems oddly prescient.

Our Take
This isn't the first head-scratching collaboration we've seen between hip-hop artists and games. Remember Method Man's song "World Gone Sour," written for Caocom's Sour Patch Kids game? Who could forget really.
