Today, you can meet Ecko when he stops by town to autograph copies of Getting Up and show you how to master video-game tagging. The graffiti game centers on Trane a tagging antihero voiced by hip-hop rhymer Talib Kweli who's initially just looking to get up until he becomes the leader of a revolutionary movement. Players can master various graffiti skills, starting as a toy (beginner) artist as they tag landscapes while battling rival crews, a corrupt mayor and a police state, all in an effort to reach the sweet spots of New Radius, where a well-placed tag brings respect and reputation. The game features a hot soundtrack and a hot cast, with names like Diddy, Rosario Dawson, Charlie Murphy, Brittany Murphy, George Hamilton, Giovanni Ribisi, Adam West and Andy Dick lending their voices.
