Video games featuring rappers isn’t a new thing. Wu-Tang: Shaolin Style, the Def Jam games.. heck, even Shaq-fu probably counts thanks to Shaq’s forays into the rap game. Now we’ve caught wind that two rappers – MC Hammer and Soulja Boy – might be getting their own video games.

Now we’ve caught wind that rapper, pastor, and late 90s punchline MC Hammer is meeting with game publishing giant Activision. What for? Who knows. A Hammerman game? Guitar Hero: MC Hammer?
Here’s what Hammer posted on his Twitter account (this is verbatim):
I got one day to recover ,then it’s LA to Activision to get a glance of a top secrete project on Monday…Cannot wait !!!
Of course, it may not even be for an actual game, but just thinking about possible titles for an MC Hammer game is just so much fun.
Speaking of games and rappers, Soulja Boy is also apparently getting his very own Xbox 360 game. Here’s what he said in an interview with Complex (again, I’m quoting this verbatim):
Soulja Boy video game is coming for Xbox 360 in 2009. After I put the Xbox 360 challenge up on the Internet, it was over all these video game sites. And a couple video game companies hit me up on my email because I put the email on there too. And hit me up like, “Blah, blah, blah, blah.” So I was like, “Oh snaps!” So I forwarded to my management, and they forwarded to my label. And now we’re doing the video game.
