RZA Joins DJ Hero 2 Cast as Playable Character
Not only is RZA the Wu-Tang Clan‘s production sage and resident chess master, but the rapper/actor is also a gamer. On October 19, RZA will live out every video game fanatic’s dream when he becomes a playable character in Activision’s DJ Hero 2.
Bobby Digital created two mixes specifically for DJ Hero 2: LL Cool J‘s ‘I Can’t Live Without My Radio’ mixed with Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five’s ‘The Message’ and Damian Marley‘s ‘Welcome to Jamrock’ mixed with ‘A Fifth of Beethoven’ by Water Murphy.
“RZA rounds out the crew of in-game playable characters representing the biggest and best DJs in hip hop, pop and dance from around the world,” said Dan Neil, Music Director of FreeStyleGames. “These world-renowned DJs, along with our award-winning team at FreeStyleGames, have mixed a host of the biggest hits from the hottest artists today to produce 83 masterpieces that deliver the best soundtrack in entertainment.”
“As both a DJ and gamer from an early age, the game combines two of my passions,” adds RZA. “I loved working with the team and am excited for the fans to hear the two brand-new mixes I put together just for this game. Bong bong!”
