Music off od "Blood On The Sand" the video game in stores Feb 24th
18 Exclusive, Never Before Heard Tracks from 50 Cent and G-Unit
50 Cent: One of the most exciting things about Blood on the Sand is that we put 18 exclusive tracks in the game that people have never heard before. The exclusive music is made specifically for this game and won’t appear anywhere else. The new songs give you a lot of options. People who play games these days play much longer than they did back in the day playing Street Fighter, so it’s important that the games have music that people want to listen to as they play.
I enjoy the process of making music everywhere I go. If I’m on a plane for 6 hours from NY to LA, then I’m writing things down as I think of them during that flight. It’s not a complete song, but these are portions of lyrics that become part of a song, and then I go to the studio later and record it.
And it starts to add up, it’s like a collage for me – an album has to have the right components, beats, and music momentum that makes it something that’s a classic, because it slows down when it’s supposed to and then it speeds up and stays where it needs to stay for the duration of the album. For the soundtrack of the actual video game, there’s a specific tempo, a pace that you have to hold, you can’t bounce around, you can’t just put anything into the game, it has to have that energy to it.
