In honor of the highly-anticipated return of Max Payne in this May's Max Payne 3[www.rockstargames.com] we'll be giving one lucky Grand Prize winner the once in a lifetime chance to follow Max's trail with the New York to São Paulo Sweepstakes[socialclub.rockstargames.com] - an action packed trip from the gritty streets of NYC to vibrant São Paulo, Brazil - in an experience which includes a pre-release play session of Max Payne 3 in NYC, a VIP trip to São Paulo including passes to attend the Sonar Festival, and more.
Today, we're proud to announce that another key contributor to the game's aural action is celebrated São Paulo rap star Emicida[en.wikipedia.org] - one of the leaders in a movement that's helped make São Paulo a veritable hip-hop capital for Brazil. Emicida is known for his tough and raw rhymes and freestyles ('Emicida' being a fusion of the words 'emcee' and 'homicide') and for his dedication not only to aesthetics but to imparting important messages of social justice as it relates to the downtrodden of his city and country. Winner of Act of the Year in the 2011 MTV VMB Awards[en.wikipedia.org], Emicida's regarded as one of the biggest icons in Brazilian music today and has rocked mega festivals around the world from Rock in Rio to SWU, Sonar, Planet, Atlantis to Coachella[mtv.uol.com.br].
We reached out to Emicida last week for his candid thoughts on what it's been like working on original music for the game: http://rsg.ms/x8ZhIu
