In April 2017, Maine rapper Spose unveiled “the world’s first-ever album to be released inside of a video game” (Downeast Magazine). His album “Good Luck With Your Life” was released May 5, but fans (or even non-fans) could hear the album right now locked inside his just-released mobiel gaming app “Spose: King of Maine” (out now in Apple App Store and Google Play Store).
The app has prompted Medium.com to deem Spose “The King of Maine, the king of marketing.” The article’s subtitled credited Spose with finding a way to “Convert a Twitter Follower to a Fan in 10 Minutes.”
Spose first rose to popularity in 2010 with his RIAA-certified gold-selling hit single “I’m Awesome” (Republic Records). The song to date has sold over 900,000 copies, the video has over 13 million views. “I’m Awesome” is also the theme song for award-winning Canadian sitcom “Mr. D” (CBC), now going on it’s seventh season.
In 2011, using his newfound start-up capital, Spose quickly became an entrepreneur. He created his own record label Preposterously Dank Entertainment and has since released over 30 albums, including 11 of his own. The latest “Good Luck With Your Life” is out everywhere May 5 (Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal, actual physical record stores, etc.) however, thousands have already heard the album in Spose’s revolutionary app “Spose: King of Maine.” News anchor Katie Thompson of ABC WCBV5 Boston said “Spose is a talented lyricist, rapper, super-dad and now entrepreneur! What a genius way to release an album.”
The mobile game “Spose: King of Maine” has become the #2 best selling music app in the United States in the Apple App Store in recent days. The app is the first of it’s kind. The app allowed users to unlock and listen to Spose’s new album “Good Luck With Your Life” a month before it’s release (May 5) in a Mario-style game which they play as Spose to fight through Spose’s home state of Maine. Along the way through the counties, players can unlock the songs and fight seagulls, rednecks, the governor along the way to become “The King of Maine” themselves.
Spose has played on the same gigs as tons of super famous people (Drake, Weezer, J Cole). Spose also has four kids with his wife, a school teacher who Spose describes as “hot also a genius.”
Vibe Magazine once called Spose “the next great white rapper.”
