Final tracklisting and regional exclusives for 'Def Jam Rapstar'
Thursday 30 September 2010
The final set of tracks for the hip-hop-centric
Def Jam Rapstar game has been revealed, taking the title's tally to 46 tracks, with ten exclusives for October 5's North American release and the same amount for its November 5 UK equivalent.
The new confirmations extend to The Beastie Boys' "Brass Monkey," "Stronger " by Kanye West, "Big Poppa " from Notorious B.I.G, "It Takes Two" by Rob Base, Soulja Boy Tell'em with "Turn My Swag On," and Snoop Dogg's "What's My Name" follow-up, "Gin and Juice."
While North Americans are also treated to Lil' Kim's "Crush On You," budding Rapstars in the UK are to find that N-Dubz' "I Need You," Roots Manuva's "Witness The Fitness," and So Solid Crew's chart topping "21 Seconds" will be pressed to their game discs instead.
Both sides of the Atlantic will be able to rap to the sounds of Drake, 50 Cent, Nelly and Ja Rule, as well as classics from 2Pac, Biz Markie, LL Cool J, Onyx, Run DMC, Wu-Tang and Public Enemy.
There are also instrumental tracks from top producers so that players can freestyle their own lyrics.
Def Jam Rapstar for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii is Def Jam's fourth licensed video game, but the first that focuses soley on music, following the successes of Guitar Hero, Rock Band, SingStar and We Sing.
One of Rapstar's tracks, Push It by Salt 'n' Pepa, will also be appearing in November's Dance Central on Xbox 360 and SingStar Dance on PlayStation 3.
