The Music Biz is an interactive mobile game app that was launched earlier this year from award- winning film and gaming producers Hungry Eyes Film & Television and XMG Studios Inc. The initial launch in January 2013 culminated with The Music Biz soaring to the top of iTunes' free music app charts and netting over 50,000 downloads worldwide in its first month on the market. The game is a digital reinvention of the contemporary hip hop music industry, players are challenged to create their own label, sign artists and even create music for release! The Music Biz has just officially launched its second iteration (update) for iOS and Android with a huge new roster of real life artists and producers!
The real allure of The Music Biz is the inclusion of real life hip hop artists, producers and brands into the game itself, bringing an authentic and totally original feel to the platform. With the new update we now have over 20 producers and artists supplying music for the game, including;
Alchemist (Eminem's tour DJ, legendary producer),
Chuck Strangers (Of Pro Era, producer for Joey Bada$$),
Mr. Porter (Of D12),
Madchild (Of Swollen Members),
Chicago mashup heroes The Hood Internet have lent their production chops to "Make-Out King", the newest track from Windy City rapper ShowYouSuck.

"Make-Out King" is coming via the rapper's debut EP, Dude Bro, out 11/26 on Closed Sessions, check below.

With their recent KOTD battle already being called an instant classic (The Source magazine covered it in their article "Is Bigg K vs Illmaculate 2013's best battle?"), Illmaculate and Bigg K collaborate and prove they are just as capable of dominating on wax. The two emcees demonstrate their skills over a fiery Chase Moore beat and the message is driven home with a lyric video courtesy of Kyle Gray (for Kyle Gray Visuals).
