Orlando, FL (PRWEB) March 25, 2009
Gen2Media Corporation (OTCBB: GTWO), a fully integrated interactive media, technology and marketing company, today announced that the first three episodes of "HIP HOP 360" are now premiering on Xbox LIVE. This visually stunning and pulsating reality series marks the first show in Gen2Media's growing line-up of planned original programming produced specifically for the online social entertainment and gaming network's 17+ million Xbox LIVE subscribers.
Created by Gen2Media's acclaimed production team, the riveting on-demand video series is hosted by DJ Prostyle, one of Urban music's most prominent Heavy Hitter disc jockeys and the founder and CEO of ALL PRO Records. Prostyle travels the globe to hook up Xbox LIVE viewers with the exclusive side of "Hip Hop - Up, Down, All Around, 360 degrees." Delivering provocative insight into the minds, music and lifestyles of chart-busting artists, HIP HOP 360 dishes up unprecedented backstage access to the best stage shows, video shoots, parties, vacation spots and luxury homes of today's giants of Hip Hop, including Rick Ross, Pitbull, Jadakiss, Akon, Gorilla Zoe and Little Wayne, among others.

Gen2Media President Mary Spio stated, "Hip Hop is fueling a multi-hundred billion dollar market worldwide, led by more than 24 million 15-29 year-old men in the U.S. alone who connect with the music and affiliate with the culture. Moreover, a large portion of this same demographic market is migrating away from traditional broadcast mediums to platforms like Xbox as its primary source for on-demand entertainment. Consequently, we expect that HIP HOP 360 will quickly gain a large and loyal fan base among Xbox LIVE subscribers who are actively seeking superior quality and highly engaging Hip Hop-flavored viewing experiences."
In addition to HIP HOP 360, Xbox LIVE is also the source for other Gen2Media on-demand programs, including Scribble Jam, America's largest underground Hip Hop event, and Angie Martinez: Interviews with Hip Hop, featuring urban artists discussing their lives, inspirations and latest controversies with the popular HOT 97 radio host.
"Gen2Media is intent on meeting the explosive demand for high definition, immersive and experiential entertainment - anywhere, anytime - by developing a robust line-up of original programming and delivering it to content-hungry consumers across our growing distribution network, which now includes Xbox LIVE, TiVo and numerous leading online channels," noted Jim Byrd, Chairman and CEO of Gen2Media. Continuing, he said, "As the tip of the proverbial iceberg, HIP HOP 360 speaks to the creative talent entrenched in our amazing team and serves as an important demonstration of Gen2Media's impressive production capabilities. Just watch as our original content offerings grow to include cutting-edge sports, news, gossip, music, comedy and drama."
