Throughout the 90s and 2000s, Hip-Hop practically conquered the world, appearing in everything from movies and TV, to comics and advertising. However, one medium the genre struggled to master, was gaming. Ty "the SEGA Guy" is here to shed light on why rap went from having no business in video games, to becoming the go-to culture in interactive entertainment, in a panel 4 years in the making.
