 Compton and Long Beach together? Now you KNOW you're in trouble.
Konami and 4mm Games issued a joint release this morning announcing a distribution deal for Def Jam Rapstar. Konami will help get the game on shelves for Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii this fall. Autumn Games will also receive some sort of co-publishing credit.

Rapstar will contain over 40 songs at launch, including specific tracks for the UK and European versions of the game. Here's a new list of confirmed tracks for the game.

  • 2 Pac - I Get Around
  • 50 Cent - I Get Money
  • Dr. Dre featuring Snoop Dogg - Nuthin’ But a “G” Thang
  • Kanye West featuring Jamie Foxx - Gold Digger
  • Lil’ Wayne - A Milli
  • Notorius B.I.G. - Juicy
  • Slick Rick - Children’s Story
  • T.I. featuring Rihanna - Live Your Life
  • Wu-Tang Clan - C.R.E.A.M.
  • Young Jeezy featuring Kanye West - Put On

No word on if the game will support nine mics or ship with enough little white neck towels to properly convey the full Wu-Tang performance experience. When I played the game back at E3, it had "They Reminisce Over You" by Pete Rock & CL Smooth in it, as well, so this list is significantly shorter than the one we currently have on our game page. I'm playing an updated version of this tonight at a Konami event, so I'll try to figure out if that's still in there.

Wait, I think he's trying to tell us something:
 
Jeff telling us to eat a dick.
Ice T told Soulja Boy to eat a dick.
Ice T and/or Soulja Boy confirmed?

T.R.O.Y. is one of the greatest songs of all time.

#12 Posted by floodiastus (1262 posts) -

Oh man... why not a new Def Jam fighting game, the second one was awesome... too bad the third one sucked so bad.

#13 Edited by MikkaQ (10268 posts) -

Fuck y'all, I can't wait to spit my game.  
 
Or... whatever the kids call it these days. I just hope more Wu Tang will be announced, maybe DLC packs or something. Oh and Run-DMC please. Please? 
 
EDIT: Also looking at the page, very awesome to see Slick Rick there, wonder if I get bonus points for doing the accent well. Though I'd rather have "Treat 'em Like a Prostitute".

#14 Posted by RobJ (398 posts) -

Not my type of music but I'd imagine there are a lot of folks who will be into this. Always nice to have different genres represented.

#15 Posted by ZagZagovich (753 posts) -

I hope Straight Outta Compton is on there. That shit is fucking great to karaoke.

The only karaoke video game I have ever played is Rock Band (1) vocals.  Rock and pop is cool sometimes but lets just say I haven't played a karaoke since then.  I'm personally stoked as hell to see this game coming and might give it a try.  I find at least half of the tracks listed awesome.  I'm curious how much vocal recognition the game itself will use since hip-hop tends to be very monotone.  Whatever, I'd probably just set it to easy play or whatever and end up free styling anyway.  Looking forward to more coverage and opinions on this as more develops.  Drop a bomb on it son.

The reason Jeff is so passionate about this product is because "In the Can, In the Can" has been confirmed as day one DLC.

I can imagine the ads and the game cover already.
 
"Giant Bomb: 5 out of 5! GAME OF THE YEAR DUUUUUDE! -Jeff Gerstmann"

No shit dude.  I was ready to be moderately amused by this game for no reason, and then Jeff goes all West Coast on a motherfucker and now I can't contain myself.  Can't wait for more.

Cash Rules Everything Around Me!

#33 Posted by sickVisionz (1268 posts) -

Those first 10 tracks are a pretty nice selection.  If that's a sign the line up should be good.  This might be the first music game that I purchase within 2-3 years of it coming out.

Y'all fuckin' with US Pipe now, son!  He done told you not to mess with that US!  Awwww shit son!
 
Anyway, I'll have to check this out.  I've already wasted way too much time singing Killers songs in Rock Band, so now it's time for something different.  I'm surprised at how great the selection of traccks is.  Slick Rick?  Snoop? Dre?  Pete Rock and CL Smooth?  I was expecting a bunch of Young Money and Soulja Boy tracks.  I'm impressed they didn't go that route.  If they throw a couple Murs and Cage songs in there, I'm sold.

@Jeff: I care Jeff...hopefully they have more older tracks I would love me some older 50 and Eminem...this could get me back in to a rythem game
#37 Posted by Linkyshinks (9881 posts) -

I want more 2Pac. 

#38 Posted by TripMasterMunky (2403 posts) -

This better be uncensored. Otherwise it's pointless.
 
Also, prepare next year for "The Wu-Tang Clan: Rapstar"

#39 Edited by MrKlorox (11206 posts) -

There's about 5mm missing from the publisher's name for this to be truly epic.

#40 Posted by SimplyTron (77 posts) -

Tell em Jeff.  You, Ice T and me, we will roll up on these mothafuckas and shove that dick down their throat. 
This shit better have the whole Chronic and Marshall Mathers LP available as DLC.

I was prepared to make this EXACT statement one the first batch of hatin' ass-fools. This site is in good hands. Jeff, let these clowns know what's really hood.

Please GOD, give this as a bonus track:

There's a mistake with the 50 Cent song. I'm pretty sure Many Men is the only song he's ever made.

#47 Edited by Tuggah (1072 posts) -

Good to see Slick Rick getting some love. 
 
My demands:
Straight Outta Compton album
More Wu-Tang
Obviously I would love some Atmosphere but unless they run out of DLC ideas, won't happen/
