It was only a matter of time. Zynga, the company responsible for the most popular Facebook and social media games, has inked a deal with rap star Dr. Dre, embedding the video for his new song, "Kush," within the Mafia Wars game.

"Dre is a cultural icon that has inspired generations of music lovers," said Mark Pincus, CEO and founder of Zynga, in a statement. "We're huge music fans at Zynga and we know the players within Mafia Wars will love the chance to discover incredible music content while playing with their friends." The partnership also includes several other Dre-inspired game experiences, including making music content available and limited edition virtual goods, such as headphones, a vintage car and weapons.
