    I would love to but I'm not the only person in my house and my consoles are square in the middle of the house. So, me rapping in the living room might cause some awkward situations.

    Ppl shouldn't feel intimadated because it's rap music and it's not their total genre. There are some really memorable songs at least I always wanted to rap to. I like the freestyle mode where I can work on my freestyle skill. I think it's a unique game because there hasn't been many sucessful attempts at making a good rap game.

     
    I think the track list is quite good, some mediocre tracks. 50 cent song should of been his first song, 2 pac's song should of been california or something more memorable. I can't wait to sing ruff ryder anthem, stop...drop....shoot them up, open up shop....ohh...no, that's how ruff ryders roll. (Repeat) 
     
    the list above isn't complete, it's missing  Method Man and Redman - Da Rockwilder   and I can't reedit it in explorer when I use a quote. Also it's missing eminem songs.

    I might rent it. Rap isn't my favorite music, but I don't hate it or anything.

    I'm going to rap spectacular 
    i'm going to be buying def jam rap star 
    for a day, i'll feel like a gansta 
    with all the wounds and battle scars  
    this might not be like rockband or sing star 
    however I think it can appeal to anyone, whoever you are
     
    the mode i'll be working on is my freestyle 
    and with the game all of the while 
    i'll be working it, how I spit it 
    honestly it seems like a good game, it probally wouldn't be shit  
     
    It sucks how this game doesn't get any attention 
    only on giantbomb it gets an honorable mention 
    maybe because ppl doesn't know how to flow 
    or maybe they think rap music is all cursing and talking about hoes 
     
    the music is like poetry, an art form 
    that is the msg I want to say to giantbomb 
    that's why I am rapping on the forum 
    I like rap music, it ain't metal, however there is nothing wrong

    You have no choice!  You must talk about how much you don't like rap music!! 
     
    *ahem* I plead the First, I strongly dislike rap.

    Ted:
     Yo let me tell you how this flow go today,
    while I break it down.
    I see your girl over there, she lookin' at me
    Don't be afraid, she comin' home with me
    I rhyme like this, every day
    I'm internationally known I get payed
    I got so much dough, call me a Brad (brat) 
    Smell me right now I smell like a vault
     
    Now let me tell you more how this go
    about this motherfucking pimp for this show
    I tell you this, and I tell you that
    then I whip out a (merdlo?) baseball bat
     
    [break]
     
    Other rappers they be bringing the drama son
    But I run this shit like Obama son!
    I don't fuck around like other (see?/ emcees?)
    I just drop these beats like I drop some other shit
    Don't fuck with me like that
    'cause I'm coming thru, like a truck
    (to) Fuck you UP!!
     
    Let me tell you how I murder these beats
    they call me john Gotti I defeat
    Now let me tell you how this go
    let me tell you how we do this shit on the floor
    I be in the club with this fine ass chick
    next thing you know the chick's on my dick
    It's true ain't no lie
    I don't care if she with a guy
    That's how I roll it's just what I do
    I'm the tightest motherfucker in this whole damn crew
    You see me rollin' in a basement 
    and you see me rolling in the club
    you see me rolling on dubs 
    you see me rolling on....something that rhymes with dubs
     (but) I don't really care 
    cause your girl still there
    and she till with me
    I turn that hoe sleepy
     
     If you see your girl looking tired 
    There's a good chance she was up all night
    ridin' something rather long, something strong It was wrong 
    but I don't care 
    ...I show your girl the time of her life
    I take her home I don't really give a fuck 
    even if she yo wife
     
    Jeff: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWW THAT'S RIGHT!!!! ALL THE EFFECTS ARE ON NOW!!!!    
    My freestyle skills are not as good as engineer Ted's but that mode looks really fun. As for the track list there are some good songs/artists like 2pac, Dr Dre, Snoop Dogg, DMX, Biggie, Wu Tang, etc. but then I see stuff like Lil Wayne, Drake, Jim Jones etc. and I don't see the value in buying a karaoke game. Don't get me wrong I would love to play it with a few friends but I don't see myself buying it.

    #17 Posted by Zithe (1045 posts) -

    From what I've seen on the Happy Hour and Quick Look, I am actually very impressed with it. Especially the online video sharing/rating competition. I'll bet this game will be amazing to people who like to rap or like to listen to it. Unfortunately, I don't fit either of those categories.

    As much as I love rap, no, because white dudes mostly sound really bad when rapping.  So I personally don't try to rap myself.

    @blacklabeldomm:  
    Yo some advice on word play 
    I see you switching it up, unlike dr. dre 
    then you might to into something like this 
    this part of the rhyme, doesn't rhyme, like jay-zee 
    then you say i'll pump your fist 
    then you'll go to the word, i'm feeling lazy 
    Then you go into the one two punch 
    sorry I was away, I was eatting lunch 
    I mean dinner, it's late at night 
    I want to the fridge for a dead body because I needed a bite 
     
    I seen you wrote this rhyme before on the giantbomb quick look 
    honestly, recycling rhymes ain't cool in my book 
    my girlfriend wouldn't be looking at anyone because he's in the kitchen to cook 
    I ain't need to steal my old rhymes, because I ain't a crook 
     
    see that word play, where I rapped a few times  
    that's called a flow, which you seem to lack it all the time 
    your style is silent, like a mime 
    I got some skills, I can flow besides making two words rhyme

    I'm really undecided I don't know all of the music in rap and though I like a lot I don't know if its enough for a buy.

    #25 Posted by Vinny_Says (5719 posts) -
    @HitmanAgent47: Yo sun that wasn't my rhyme it was Ted's!
     
    Also yes you probably will destroy me in a freestyle battle....
    #26 Edited by HitmanAgent47 (8576 posts) -
    @blacklabeldomm: who's ted? Well i'll be practicing with def jam rapstar, I have room for improvment with my freestyle. I can write it quickly, I just can't rap it out loud that well.   
      
    edit: to the next post, okay. That was quite good though if that was his rhymes
    #27 Posted by Vinny_Says (5719 posts) -
    @HitmanAgent47: Ummm....he's the guy who's not Jeff in the quicklook, he does the freestyle at the end of the video....I simply wrote down what he spit....and it was FYHRE!!!
    #28 Posted by jonnyboy (2920 posts) -

    I intend to steal it and proliferate the stereotype.

    #29 Posted by Tonic7 (240 posts) -

    I would, but I can sing a majority of those songs by heart. I ain't need no vidja game to tell me that!

    #30 Edited by HitmanAgent47 (8576 posts) -
    @Tonic7: Yeah, however it gives you a score. You may know it, however can you spit it. Are you with it, will you get a 100 percent? 
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 
    edit: oh shit, my mind is stuck in freestyle mode 
    flip mode, it's like i'm infected with a cold 
    honestly it's like i'm seeing the matrix now, all the cheat codes 
    it's like I downloading all the style from all the ppl from the label death row   
     
    I act like an addict, my avatar looks like mr fantastic 
    what you say to me, i'm elastic 
    bounces off me and sticks to you 
    because i'm rubber and you are glue 
    your a bubble gum I had under my shoe 
    my rhymes are infectious, like the flu 
    you think I was smoking the cronic, like scooby do 
    (they call this a diss, don't take it seriously) 
    What the fuck that was worst than an aids patient?   
    maybe you need to go on a vacation  
    because your using the wrong part of the brain and your lactating  
    I don't mind, i'm patiently waiting
    thinking you can go around dissing me 
    you think you are better, that's a conspiracy theory 
     
    today my brain is frozen 
    the rhymes aren't flowing 
    however that doesn't mean your mom ain't blowing 
    me, when i'm watching the hdtv   
    then tell her to make me a ham sandwhich with cheeze 
    honestly bitch please 
    I didn't have aids, however her blowing me I think I caught a diease               
     
    Anyways before I didn't like rap music 
    I said to myself honestly who could listen to this 
    then was taught how to freestyle 
    to battle like it was 8 mile 
    I found myself wowed

    You're walkin down a horror corridor, 
    it's almost 4 in the morning and youre in a,  
    nightmare it's horrible, right there's the coroner,  
    waiting for you to turn the corner so he can corner ya, 
    you're a goner, he's on to ya 
    Out the corner of his cornea, he just saw you run, 
    all you want is to rest cuz you cant run anymore youre done, 
    all he wants is to kill you in front of an audience, 
    while everybody is watching in the party applauding it, 
     
     
    And that is why they have such a huge piece missing in this game....
    #36 Edited by HitmanAgent47 (8576 posts) -

    I see the percentage going down faster than paris hilton  
    everytime I see it, there is a lower percent 
    honestly, you might not buy it, it might be a good rent 
    it might not have everything, like eminem 
    you still got the old school to 50 cent 
    belive it or not, there will be like 200 songs later on for dlc content 
    you can upload your video and battle everyone from every continent 
    you might not like rap music, the game might be fun to play with friends 
    a karaoke game, it's the ultimate 
    a real rap game, it's an improvement 
    honesty don't knock it until you try it  
    lol I just woke up and i'm still freestyling

    I only have a handful of rap songs that I actually like, and none of them are in this game. But even if they were, I don't like singing games, so no all around.

    Most of my faves are not the hits.
    They're not on the track list, and they're crazy longshots for any kind of DLC.

    It's a pretty great track list, and a great artist list - just not my favourites list.
