I have been wanting a game like Def Jam Rapstar for a long time, yes we have Rock Band and Guitar Hero which every once in a while throw a Public Enemy song our way, but it never caters to the hip-hop enthusiast. Def Jam Rapstar is for the true hip-hop fan, a game that has you spitting lyrics like Kanye and does not allow for you to hum along with the song. Not much is known about the track list just yet, but “Put On” from Young Jeezy and “Gold-digger” by Kanye West are confirmed.
Def Jam Rapstar is beyond just a karaoke game, it is a full experience where you can make a video of your performance, edit it and upload for the community to see. You can also battle friends to see who is the top spitter in your crew.
This title is for the true hip hop head and is boasting songs that will be “Bridging the Gap”:
Golden Age. Platinum Age. Old School. New School. Veteran. Rookie. Def Jam Rapstar has the hits no matter what style you represent.
DJ Hero look out, there is a new kid headed to the hip-hop block and he looks serious. So far it is still scheduled for a winter release and there is definitely DLC to come after as well.
