50 Cent To Perform at Spike Video Game Awards

Mogul 50 Cent is set to promote both his new album and video game next month at Spike TV’s sixth annual Video Game Awards.

The show will feature 50 performing “Get Up,” the Scott Storch produced official first single from Before I Self Destruct.

During the song, 50 is scheduled to utilize exclusive video footage and choreography from his upcoming second video game release 50 Cent: Blood in the Sand.

Last month, the game was in danger of cancellation due to its original publisher Activision, Inc merging with Blizzard Entertainment.

However, international developer THQ picked up project and plans have been finalized to release the title by Christmas or early 2009.

The game is powered by the Unreal Engine 3, most recognized for its use in the popular X-Box Gears of War series.

Blood in the Sand’s playable character list includes Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo, and DJ Whoo Kid. Former G-Unit member Young Buck is also set to appear, but it has not been confirmed in what fashion.

The Spike TV Video Game Awards premiers live December 14 at PM.
