Def Jam Rapstar to be Published by Konami. First Tracks Confirmed
Written Thursday, April 08, 2010 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
Def Jam Rapstar is being billed as "the ultimate MC experience" and the "first true interactive Hip Hop music game experience for consoles". That's two experiences for the price of one, slated for release around Autumn 2010.
Essentially, Def Jam Rapstar looks a bit like Lips with rap videos instead of grating pop music, but quite how it will work with our slow-rhyming, weak wordsmith 'skills' is uncertain.
What we do know is that there will be 40 licensed tracks to rhyme and freestyle your way through, and if you're proud of your amateur MC prowess, you can also make a video using a compatible camera and upload it for everyone to enjoy/laugh at.
The tracks confirmed so far are a nice mix of classic and contemporary, and we're particularly looking forward to murdering Slick Rick's "Children's Story" with our lacklustre mumblings. Somehow we think the line "this ain't funny so don't you dare laugh," will be impossible to follow.
