We’ve seen lots of artists launch their own mobile apps in the last couple of years, and now a heap of Canadian hip-hop acts have signed on to contribute to an upcoming app called The Mu$ic Biz, which will be released for free on iTunes starting December 12.
The hip-hop-oriented game allows players take on the role of record label CEO and guide their company to fame. Players must sign artists, produce tracks, mix beats, tour, promote acts, and win fans in order to build their own music empire.
What makes this especially exciting for hip-hop fans is that a number of high-profile producers have signed on to contribute some beats, including Rich Kidd, Badbadnotgood, Frank Dukes, Ryan Hemsworth, Jake One, Frank Dukes, Marco Polo, Mr. Porter and MoSS. The game’s fictional characters will be able to collaborate and use beats from these artists.
Prior to the game’s release, The Mu$ic Biz will officially launch with a concert by Rich Kidd and SonReal at the Rivoli in Toronto on December 1. Special guests Frank Dukes, Raven Sorvino and DJ Nana will also be on hand.
