West Coast rap star The Game and fellow rapper Bow Wow will finally see who the better video gamer is as they prepare to go head to head in a game of Madden NFL 09.
The meeting is scheduled to take place tonight [September 5] from 6 to 8 p.m. at a secret location.
The showdown comes weeks after Bow Wow issued a one on one challenge for $100,000 to the Game in August, in response to claims the Compton lyricists made on konsolekingz.com about being the top Madden player in the world.
The pairs rivalry resulted in a series of online videos that featured the rappers taking shots at one another, while hyping their skills.
For Bow Wow, the match up couldnt come any sooner.
“I can’t wait to play! I’ve been waiting, Games been waiting, the video game worlds been waiting, Bow Wow told AllHipHop.com in a statement. The only bad thing is Games fans are gonna have to see him lose! Ima play with the Bengals, Ohio all day, gotta represent for the state! Like Michael Buffer says — lets get ready to rumble!”
Despite Bow Wows boasts, the Game is confident he will come out on top.
“Bow Wow has no idea what hes started,” The Game retorted. “Hes in way over his head .I will remain the undisputed Madden king.”
The Game/Bow Wow showdown will mirror a highly-anticipated boxing match as the rappers kick off the event with a weigh-in ceremony, before engaging each other on Xbox 360.
The contest will act as the first of many celebrity battle planned by Hip-Hop gaming company Konsole Kingz.
