4mm Games is continuing the reveals on their upcoming Hip Hop music game, Def Jam Rapstar. Today’s announcement entails the details of new tracks and producers joining the ranks of the musical artists to be featured in the game. I can’t say I’m personally a fan of all of the track selections, but they’ve all been major cultural hits.
New tracks revealed include Busta Rhymes’ “Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Can See,” “Ruff Ryder’s Anthem” by DMX, “Lean Back” by Fat Joe and Terror Squad, Ja Rule and Ashanti’s “Always on Time,” the famous “Get Low” by Lil’ Jon, “Can’t Truss It” by Public Enemy and finally “Slow Jamz” by Twista, Kanye, and Jamie Foxx. If you will recall, these were definitely hits on the radio during their heyday.
Three new producers have also been announced. These are Bangladesh, DJ Premier and, my personal favorite, Just Blaze.
Read on for Rapstar’s details, including pricing and availability. If you’re still not convinced, listen to Fat Joe below.
