E3 2012 – The Hip Hop Gamer – Gaming, Music and the Hardwork to Balance the Two

Hip Hop GamerWhat happens when you mix hip hop and gaming? You get The Hip Hop Gamer. The passionate, dedicated, self-made journalist-meets-rap-star was one of the musical acts at the Shifted 2 Reality party and I had the opportunity to speak with him after bumping into him practically everywhere during the convention week.

The Hip Hop Gamer’s performance at the event was absolutely great. Part of the greatness around it was that his music is exactly what you would expect it to be: hip hop mixed with lyrics about gaming. The other part of the greatness was that I was able to save the show, as he didn’t have a microphone following the performance of a previous act. No worries, our trusty mic we use on camera was obviously ready and available to fulfill its duties to save yet another production and the show went on!

During our short chat, we learned about his career in music, his show and publication which now is hosted through EGM and also about his future possible appearance in a video game. Want to check out the full scoop? You don’t want to miss how animated he gets during the interview! Oh yeah, and I get to hold his championship belt.
