Sierra Online, a division of Vivendi Games, has signed some of the hottest hip-hop artists and a renowned producer to create an exclusive in-game soundtrack for the highly anticipated PC game FreeStyle Street Basketball(TM).  Lloyd Banks, Young Hot Rod and Sha Money XL have been drafted to lead the FreeStyle Street Basketball music team.
 
G-Unit's Lloyd Banks, whose debut album "Hunger for More" sold more than 3 million copies, is creating the official theme song for FreeStyle Street Basketball.  His latest album, "Rotten Apple," is in stores now.
 
"I jumped at the chance to create an exclusive song for FreeStyle Street Basketball, especially since hip-hop has always been relevant in the street basketball culture," said Lloyd Banks.  "I'm always playing video games so to have the opportunity to record the theme song for a game is crazy."
 
FreeStyle Street Basketball is a fast-paced massively multiplayer online PC basketball game where players meet on virtual courts to challenge each other in a dynamic pick-up game environment, featuring cutting-edge music, fashions and gravity defying basketball moves.  The game's easy-to-learn controls allow players to master every move, from simple shots to crazy alleyoop dunks, using just four keys.  Gamers can play 1-on-1, 2-on-2 or 3-on-3 street basketball online against people from around the country.  The globally popular FreeStyle Street Basketball has more than 30 million players in Asia.
 
"G-Unit artists embody the spirit of street basketball so Lloyd Banks, Young Hot Rod, and Sha Money XL are a perfect fit for FreeStyle Street Basketball," said Ed Zobrist, President, Sierra Online.  "We are excited to combine great artists with great gameplay."
 
New G-Unit member Young Hot Rod is creating a track exclusively for the game.  His first single "Be Easy" featuring Mary J. Blige has heated up the airwaves and his debut album "Fast Lane" is scheduled to drop in early 2007. Famed producer Sha Money XL, whose producing credits include 50 Cent, Tupac and Lloyd Banks, is creating seven exclusive beats for FreeStyle Street Basketball and producing the Lloyd Banks and Young Hot Rod tracks.  In addition to producing, Sha Money XL scored 50 Cent: Bulletproof as well as Fast & Furious: Tokyo Drift.
 
FreeStyle Street Basketball will be free for a limited time while it's available for a public preview this spring.  The game will be available on retail shelves and via digital distribution following the public preview.  For more information on the game and to register for the public preview, visit www.FreeStyleStreetBasketball.com
