Up to this point, it seems that Guitar Hero and Rock Band have been avoiding hip-hop like the plague. Outside of DJ Hero, the closest they have come to rap has been the Beastie Boys’ ‘Sabotage’. However, this new release from Def Jam comes complete with 40 hip-hop songs, from old-school classics to today’s hits.
You can choose from several modes of gameplay, including Career Mode, Battles, and Duets. Using the console video camera, you can also record your own music video and upload it to the online community. Apparently, the top gamers may win studio time with a famous producer.
