What do you get when you cross one of the biggest names in the music industry and four heroes in half shells? Well, if the year is 1991, you get 4:27 of “Ninja Rap,” (Go Ninja, Go Ninja, Go), but if it’s 2013, you get one of the biggest hip-hop producers, Just Blaze, working on the soundtrack for “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows.”
Inspired by the Turtles rich history, and, in part by Nickelodeon’s new take on the TMNT franchise, “Out of the Shadows” brings Donatello, Leonardo, Raphael, and Michelangelo to the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Windows PCs in late August. When it drops, it will feature beats by one of the hottest producers in the industry, a man that has worked with everyone from Jay-Z, to Kanye West, to Eminem. The collaboration brings Just Blaze full circle to a project that brings him back to his childhood. As a longtime fan of the Turtles, Blaze is excited to see one of his tracks appear in the upcoming game.
