4mm Games has a knack for integrating social networking into Def Jam Rapstar
, namely with the ability to upload your rapstar videos directly to Youtube. In the next few months leading up to the game’s release (October 5th), however, 4mm now presents you with a hip hop trivia widget
to test your knowledge of rap.
The trivia questions range from history to slang to lyrics, and you can even earn badges by completing levels. After you’ve earned your score, you can upload them to Facebook and track other people’s real-time scores on a dedicated Twitter feed (@youdontknowrap).
Know the name of Ice Cube's first rap group?
Who is known as the "original human beat box"?
What TV show did Drake appear on?
If not, THEN YOU DON'T KNOW RAP!
In anticipation of the October 5th release of Def Jam Rapstar, the first true interactive Hip Hop music game experience for the Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii, Def Jam Interactive and 4mm Games present the Def Jam Rapstar You Don’t Know Rap challenge, a free online trivia game widget that will test your Hip Hop knowledge.
The You Don't Know Rap challenge features five levels for players to progress through, answering timed questions in categories covering Lyrics, True/False, Trivia, History and Slang, all culminating in an Elimination round. As player's progress, each level gets more difficult and the player has less time to answer the questions.
Players unlock badges upon completion of levels, from Newcomer to Headliner to Rapstar. Want to earn the Speed Spitter badge? Then answer any question in less than one second. Want to be the Champion? Complete more than 5 Elimination round questions and earn that coveted Champion badge.
For those players that do know rap, you can share links to your scores and the game itself through your Facebook page.
For those that don't know rap, well, you can always play again and hope to increase your score.
And be sure to watch the @youdontknowrap Twitter feed to see scores from around the world in real-time.
