New York native and hip-hop star Nas once said, "Who's world is this?" The reply was "The world is yours," a nod to Scarface, the 1983 film directed by Brian De Palma and starring Al Pacino. The game's protagonist was embraced by the hip-hop community for his perseverance, overcoming of adversity, and pit bull-like mentality.
So it's no wonder then that VU Games today announced that it is holding a talent search for unsigned musical artists--hip-hop and otherwise--to be featured in its forthcoming game adaptation of Scarface. Entrants can log onto the Scarface: The World Is Yours Video Game Soundtrack Talent Search page at Myspace.com to enter.
Following the March 7 deadline, one track from each of 20 finalists will be posted on the Scarface Myspace page to be voted on by the public until March 28. The winning song will be included on the game's soundtrack, and the winning artist will open for a "major label headline act" at a VU Games concert event at Electronic Entertainment Expo 2006 in May in Los Angeles.
