If you follow Mr. Disgusting on twitter, you’ll know that he is an avid follower of basketball. And if I were to guess, I’d assume that he’s also a phenomenal dancer. As in he’d rock the two-step followed by a Charleston and finish it all off with a tap dance routine that would leave Dulé Hill in tears. But all of this is besides the point.
The point here is NBA Baller Beats, a new game coming out for XBox Kinect on Sept. 11th. The game uses an official Spalding NBA game ball replica and your body motions to match your dribbles and “passes” to the beat of licensed music. I highly doubt that the game comes with a warranty for all the lamps, vases, tables, chairs, glasses, and whatever else is in your game room that you are going to destroy once that ball leaves your hand.
Below is a trailer for the game as well as the disc soundtrack and previously mentioned songs for the game. READ MORE
Jumping into the hip hop world for a second, Tech N9ne has announced the Hostile Takeover Tour, which has support coming from Machine Gun Kelly (MGK), Krizz Kaliko, Mayday, Prozak, and Stevie Stone. The tour will have 90 stops in 99 days, making it the longest rap tour in history. Although no tour dates have officially been announced yet there will be stops in New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, Atlanta, Dallas, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Baltimore, Denver and Seattle, among other cities.
Tech N9ne also just released a video for Am I A Psycho?, which features Hopsin and B.O.B. The song comes off his latest album All 6′s and 7′s. The video is a horror movie homage similar to The Strangers and the house looks suspiciously like the one from the Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake. Check it out below.
