We got together with EA to give one LA area Koalition reader and a friend to attend the Need For Speed Hot Pursuit launch event. All you have to do is leave a comment in this thread about your best Need For Speed experience, using a valid email address in the email field. It’s really just that simple. The winner will be chosen Sunday evening so make sure you spread the word fast. Full details about the event below. You will be contacted Sunday night, if selected.
The main reason to be at this event besides the game is to see Chiddy Bang perform. The duo is making a ton of noise in the hiphop community and creating a serious buzz. You may want to school yourself on their music if your not in the know, so I highly suggest you check out their latest release “The Preview” on iTunes: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/the-preview/id393676451

Chiddy Bang To Headline LA Launch Of
EA’s Need For Speed Hot Pursuit
WHO: Breakout electro inspired hip-hop duo Chiddy Bang
WHAT: Launch of EA Games’ latest release, the “race-or-chase” driving game Need For Speed Hot Pursuit www.needforspeed.com
WHEN: 9 p.m. Tuesday, 11-16
WHERE: Avalon, 1735 Vine Street
WHY: Chiddy Bang – whose music is featured in this adrenal video game – is suddenly exploding on the music scene and in the media: The Philly duo was MTV’s “PUSH” artist of the week in late October, when the act was also a Twitter “trending” topic; their video “Opposite of Adults” has 7 million Youtube views; the New York Times called it’s October CMJ showcase “a gem”; and the act’s fans include Kanye West, MGMT and The Roots.
Chiddy Bang’s performance for EA will wrap up a 7-city US tour – and is the official launch of the anticipated video game – which goes on sale the same day. This party – also featuring HD game kiosks, and all-night complimentary cocktails – is a hot-ticket, invitation-only event.
