What happens when you mix hip-hop and gaming? You get The Hip Hop Gamer. The passionate, dedicated, self-made journalist-meets-rap-star was one of the musical acts at the Shifted 2 Reality party and I had the opportunity to speak with him after bumping into him practically everywhere during the convention week.
The Hip Hop Gamer's performance at the event was absolutely great. Part of the greatness around it was that his music is exactly what you would expect it to be: hip hop mixed with lyrics about gaming. The other part of the greatness was that I was able to save the show, as he didn't have a microphone following the performance of a previous act. No worries, our trusty mic we use on camera was obviously ready and available to fulfill its duties to save yet another production and the show went on!
During our short chat, we learned about his career in music, his show, and publication which now is hosted through EGM and also about his future possible appearance in a video game. Want to check out the full scoop? You don't want to miss how animated he gets during the interview! Oh yeah, and I get to hold his championship belt.
With over ten years of audio engineering experience, Nick's addition to PLuGHiTz Corporation is best served when he is behind the mixing board every Sunday night to produce the audio side of F5 Live: Refreshing Technology, Piltch Point and PLuGHiTz Live Night Cap. While mixing live every week, his previous radio show hosting experience gives him the ability to co-host as well, giving each show a unique flare with his slightly off-center, yet still realistic take on all things tech. An integral part of the show, you can find Nick always enveloped in coming up with new (and sometimes crazy) ideas and content for the show and you can always expect the most direct opinion on the stories that he feels need to be shared with the world. During the few hours where Nick isn't sleeping or working on ways to improve the company, he spends his free time going to hockey and football games and playing the latest titles on Xbox 360. Email him for his gamertag and add him today for a fun escape from the normal monotony and annoyance that the Xbox LIVE gaming community can sometimes be!
