Geffen Rapper Hush Takes the Gloves off With Live Appearance on 'The Contender' Finale

SANTA MONICA, Calif., May 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Geffen Records artist Hush comes out swinging with a multi-song performance on the season finale of NBC's hit boxing reality show "The Contender." Set for 8 p.m., Tuesday, May 24, live from Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas, the show features the match to determine the top "contender" and winner of a $1 million prize. Hush provides the musical backdrop, performing four original songs during the show.

Hush is no stranger to "The Contender." His music has been featured on almost every episode since the hit series debuted earlier this year. For the two-hour May 24 finale, Hush performs the songs "Fired Up and "Put 'Em Down" during the semi-final bouts, and the song "All I Got" during the main event. Hush then performs his tune "Adrenaline" during the closing credits.

Given all this high profile attention, it's remarkable to note the rapper's debut Geffen CD "Bulletproof" isn't even out yet. In advance of the CD's summer release, Hush has just finished shooting the video for his song "Hush is Coming," featuring Nate Dogg on the hook and production by Eminem. Directed by Flyy Kai, the video features guest appearances by Eminem, Nate Dogg, Obie Trice and D-12's Swift.

Hush's solo CD may not be out until summer, but he currently has his song "The March" featured in the Jive Records soundtrack to "XXX 2: State of the Union."

The son of a real-life homicide detective, MC Hush first drew attention in his native Detroit as a member of Da Ruckus, which he formed with Uncle Ill.

The crew teamed up with his friends Paradime and Black Magic Crossing, and as a solo artist he's opened for the likes of Ja Rule and Nelly. He took Outstanding Hip Hop MC honors at the 2003 Detroit Music Awards.
