Texas A&M gets cleats from Snoop Lion, and they're ferocious

Sometimes, being friends with famous people really pays off. Rapper Snoop Lion sent a special present to the Texas A&M football team.

Reveille better watch his back in College Station. There's a lion on campus.

OK. That's a bit of an exaggeration, but Snoop Lion did make his presence known to the Texas A&M football team.

The rapper sent a pair of exclusive "Snoop Cleats"€ to Coach Kevin Sumlin and the team, and they're pretty awesome.

The all-white cleats are adorned with a portrait of a lion, the rapper's signature, and a pair of gold fangs.

Former Aggie great Von Miller also received a pair.

Snoop is a longtime fan of the USC Trojans but has appeared to take a liking to the Aggies recently. Johnny Manziel Instagramed a photo of the rapper rocking an Aggie jersey back in February.

The design is the result of Adidas' first collaboration with a celebrity. The cost of the limited edition cleats is $120 and will be available beginning June 27, but you have to be in Los Angeles to own a pair. (Being a football star doesn't hurt your chances, either.)
