The Diplomats and Akon Ready To Rumble On New Soundtrack

 The Diplomats, Obie Trice, Akon and Dilated Peoples are among the artists providing the one-two punch to the soundtrack for EA Sports' Fight Night Round 3.

Dropping February 20, the video game will feature twelve songs-all by rap artists from both the mainstream and underground-including Dipset's "The Best Out," Trice's "Wanna Know" and Dilated's "Back Again," among others. The soundtrack also features verses from Slic One, Consequence and Atmosphere, to name a few.

"We wanted to make sure that the soundtrack is as powerful as the boxers' punches," said Steve Schnur, Electronic Art's Worldwide Executive of Music and Music Marketing via a statement. "Each song gets your heart pounding and makes you want to move faster, dig deeper and punch harder."

In related news, recent video game titles like 50 Cent's Bulletproof and Marc Ecko's Marc Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure have made headlines thanks to strong sales and film development deals.
