“As technology evolves, so must the role of the artist in peoples lives. Death Of A Pop Star was always designed to be bigger than just music,” said Banner. “With the help of the people at Konsole Kingz, we have been able to further expand the Death Of A Pop Star experience.”
Added 9th Wonder, “We must understand that everyone discovers music differently. The radio is not the only place that you can decide to become a part of a musical experience. Gaming is a huge part of our culture, more than ever.” 9th went to add, “Having a game introduce “Death of a Pop Star” to someone falls directly in line with our mission statement with this album; be different and revolutionary.”
In addition to the Death Of A Pop Star theme, the album, which was released on December 21, 2010, is available as a comic strip on deathofapopstar.com.
Well known for his #1 hits, including “Play,” “Get Like Me,” and “Like a Pimp,” David Banner is also an avid, hardcore gamer. Often times, Banner interacts directly with fans by challenging them to competitive game play sessions online. 9th Wonder is also no stranger to the gaming world.
In 2010, the soulful producer scored the entire soundtrack for EA Sports’ NBA Elite 11 and his likeness was made available as an unlockable character in NBA Jam.
