Game Description

Music is everything, and it can work for you or against you! Travel deep into the life of a high-rolling hip-hop mogul to build a record label, discover new superstars, and rule the hip-hop world. The soundtrack sets the beat as you play through the game, and the environments pulsate, crumble, and explode to life with every bone-jarring beat. Time your attacks to the driving bass and make use of scattered debris to pound your rivals. Use the Analog Sticks like turntables to add beats and switch songs, making music your weapon to unleash devastating combos. Artists like Ludacris, Paul Wall, and Big Boi are all players in your brutal climb to the top.
