DualShockers: DJ Grandmaster Flash Interview
Grandmaster Flash: Yes. It was a great experience.
GF: I’m too new in the gaming community to know who would be the proper representation.
GF: I’m now playing DJ Hero and looking forward to doing more gaming work in the future.
GF: I was approached by them and was told they wanted me to put my science into the game. At first I didn’t understand but once it became clear they wanted an authentic point of view, it made it easy tor me to become involved.
I have to say that I love Grandmaster Flash’ perspective on DJing as being a science and look forward to him and Activision further expanding on this game. DJ Hero really gives people a look into hip hop and what it can be aside from aggressive lyrics and the stereotypical gangster rapper. Dj Hero mixes and melds flows of all styles but infuses cuts of hip hop that are undeniable. The tracks in DJ Hero are far more recognizable for myself than say a Rock Band or Guitar Hero game, which makes it instantly enjoyable for me and many others.
We also tried to get an interview with Pete Wentz pictured above, but he unfortunately declined.
