About The Game:
Play as Trane graffiti artist with the street smarts, athletic prowess and vision to become an “All City King,” the most reputable of all graffiti artists. Along his path he discovers the mayor’s deep, dark secrets and uses his fighting talents and artistic vision to expose the city’s leader as a corrupt tyrant. This game tries to answer the question: What if graffiti could change the world?
The game packs a killer hip-hop soundtrack track produced by P. Diddy. Special exclusive versions of Notorious B.I.G.’s “Who Shot Ya,” remixed by Serj from the band System of a Down; “Clik, Clak, and Spray” from Pack FM; “Book of Judges” from Pharoahe Monch; and “Getting Up Anthem: Part 1,” performed by legendary Hip-Hop artist Rakim and Talib Kweli make this video game a classic all to itself. The game features the voice acting talents of Talib Kweli, Rosario Dawson, Brittany Murphy, George Hamilton, Giovanni Ribisi, Adam West, Andy Dick, Charlie Murphy, The RZA and Michael “M.C. Serch” Berrin.
