Rap group Kidz in the Hall have inked a multi-song deal with ESPN to provide music for ESPN’s presentation of the 2007-2008 college football season.
The new songs will be featured across a variety of ESPN platforms, including ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU and espn360.com.
Kidz in the Hall features group members Naledge and Double-O.
The pair met during a recruitment visit to the University of Pennsylvania in Spring of 2000 and landed a deal with Major League Entertainment/Rawkus Records in 2006.
The group released their album School Was My Hustle and shortly afterwards, Major League’s licensing division placed the group’s songs on HBO’s The Wire and NBC’s series Heroes.
It is a pleasure to once again be working with the great team at ESPN,” said Mattey Marcus, President and CEO of Major League Entertainment. “Kidz in the Hall are proud to contribute to the college football experience, and hope to be a part ESPNs programming for seasons to come. Having been star collegiate athletes in their own right, Naledge and Double-0 are a perfect fit for this unique opportunity.”
