That's an 8-Bit version of Snoop Dogg.

I made him as part of a video game I'm making for regular Nintendo called Rap: Music and Things. For real. (Not for real.) It's a lot like Super Mario Bros., except instead of being a plumber you get to be a West Coast rap legend, and instead of throwing fireballs at dinosaurs you're throwing them at white people. Again, this is real. (This isn't real.)

Snoop is a playable character in the game. You can play him. Would you like to see the other nine characters?

Cool. Here you go:

(I mean, he's a legend now, right? If he's not, he's at least definitely adorable.)
