'Lowrider' (PS2) Gets Funky Music

The gamers will be bumping and grinding in the upcoming rhythm-action video game Lowrider as the hip-hop hit "Get Low" is featured on the game's soundtrack, video game publisher Jaleco Entertainment announced.

"Get Low," by Lil Jon & the East Side Boyz featuring the Ying Yang Twins, is enjoying tremendous airplay with a 26-week run on the Billboard Magazine single chart and its position as the Number 2 hip-hop single. The certified Platinum album, "Kings of Crunk," available now from TVT Records, has remained on the top-selling albums chart for 48 weeks. Lil Jon & the East Side Boyz are the newest music sensation, making appearances on BET, MTV and the MTV Video Music Awards. The trio has been featured in USA Today, Rolling Stone Magazine, and The Source.

"Lowrider fans are ready to 'get crunk' with Lil Jon & The East Side Boyz," said Paul Burgess, TVT Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing. "It's appropriate that the hip-hop anthem of the year will anchor the hottest video game of the holiday season."

Lowrider simulates the American phenomenon of lowriding by putting into the gamers' hands the ability to purchase and upgrade cars, install major hydraulics and choose or create detailed artistry to compete against other vehicles in hops, dances and cruise shows. Lowrider enables single and multi-players to compete in tournament and street events in five U.S. cities. Lowrider offers an exciting lowriding experience with more than 20 customizable vehicles, 18 categories of car upgrades, and a custom paint tool for personalized hood ornamentation.

Lowrider will be available in North America in November exclusively on the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system. Lowrider 'Round The World was published last December in Japan by PCCW-Japan, parent company of Jaleco Entertainment. The 2003 version includes updated video footage, additional vehicles and a new soundtrack, featuring "Get Low."
