Atlanta, GA -- January 11, 2011 -- Konsole Kingz (KKZ) releases Death Of A Pop Star (DOAPS) Theme to celebrate the new album from Grammy Award-winning, hip-hop producers, David Banner and 9 th Wonder. Exclusively for the PlayStation®Store, the DOAPS Theme features 6 images along with the KKZ silver icon pack and custom sounds produced by David Banner and 9 th Wonder.

Well known for radio hits,“Like a Pimp,”“Play,” and“Get Like Me,” David Banner is an avid, hardcore gamer. Gaming is a favorite past time and fun way for the multi-Platinum rapper/producer/actor to connect with fans.

9 th Wonder is no stranger to the gaming world. In 2010, the soulful producer scored the entire soundtrack for EA Sports’ NBA Elite 11 and debuted as an unlockable character in NBA Jam.

KKZ’s collaboration with David Banner and 9 th Wonder marks their second dynamic theme for the PlayStation®Store.

Cj Peters, CEO of Konsole Kingz, stated,“We are excited to release the latest PS3™theme with David Banner and 9th Wonder.“At Konsole Kingz we are big fans of their work and are very fortunate to have the opportunity to bring Death of a Pop Star to their fans on PlayStation®3.”

 “As technology evolves, so must the role of the artist in peoples lives. Death Of A Pop Star was always designed to be bigger than just music,” said Banner. "With the help of the people at Konsole Kingz, we have been able to further expand the Death Of A Pop Star experience."

9th Wonder believes gaming is a huge part of our culture.“We must understand that everyone discovers music differently. The radio is not the only place that you can decide to become a part of a musical experience.” He added,“Having a game introduce "Death of a Pop Star" to someone falls directly in line with our mission statement with this album; be different and revolutionary.”
