Legendary music producer Just Blaze, who’s worked with all-star talent such as Kanye West, Jay Z and Eminem, will now be jumping into the world of video games.

For the upcoming release of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of The Shadows, Just Blaze was hired to produce the musical score. In a behind the scenes trailer, the creator of the hip-hop classics “Dear Summer” and “Roc The Mic” explains the process of crafting a new sound for a storied franchise.

“It’s ironic to come full-circle and now be working on a project that embodies a major part of my childhood and my childhood memories,” said Just Blaze.

Music game ‘Play Gig-It’ redefines the fan experience

The digital marriage between videogames and hip-hop music has been a popular trend over the past few years.

Jay-Z was recruited to executive produce the basketball game NBA2K13 last year while Snoop Lion was featured as a playable character in the popular fighting game Tekken Tag Tournament 2.
