    It's a video game UI wrapped around the music video's fake desktop publishing UI. Abstract, indeed. 
    It's a video game UI wrapped around the music video's fake desktop publishing UI. Abstract, indeed. 
    4mm Games has confirmed another set of tracks for Def Jam Rapstar, one of which makes me think the game needs support for more than two simultaneous players. But if you and a friend want to pretend to be an entire posse, "Scenario" by A Tribe Called Quest will be in the game. Though this does mean that you'll be charged with shouting out "rowwwwh rowwwwh, like a dungeon draaagon" in your best Busta Rhymes voice. So yeah, that's a pretty solid addition to the lineup. 
     
    Here are the rest of the newly announced tracks: 
     
    • Jim Jones - "We Fly High" 
    • LL Cool J - "Mama Said Knock You Out" 
    • Ludacris - "Stand Up" 
    • Onyx - "Slam" 
    • Run-DMC - "Run's House"
    • Big Pun featuring Joe - "Still Not A Player"
     
    Really, that guy referred to himself as simply "Joe." That's just bad branding, dude.
     
    Along with these pre-existing tracks, Cool & Dre and DJ Khalil have been added to the roster of producers providing instrumental tracks for the game's freestyle mode. Oh, and the UK version of the game will have a song called "Chip Diddy Chip" by Chipmunk. My knowledge of UK hip-hop starts and stops with Goldie Lookin' Chain, so I'm afraid I can't tell you if that's a good thing or not.

    You know, whenever we write anything about Def Jam Rapstar, we got a lot of people asking us if we can help them get "down" with this "hip-hop flavor." The answer used to be no, but I've found this handy instructional video (courtesy of Everything Is Terrible) that should get you to stop saying "yay" and start saying "yo."

    "Good posture, that's what makes it hip-hop."
     
    In terms of these songs?  These new ones are just okay for me.

    Everyone in that video is white, so since I'm black, I don't think I could ever be hip-hop enough. Life just isn't fair.

    I'm glad there's at least one Tribe song in the game, but I wish there was more stuff like that. Hopefully there will be.

    I'd love for there to be an Aesop Rock track in it just to see how stupid people would look trying to keep up with the lyrics.

    so will the crazy back-in-the-day busta rhymes hat be a pre-order item or DLC? :D
     
    cause I will only perform Scenario if I can do it like Busta did in the Arsenio Hall performance with the Tribe when Phife Dawg held his mic while Busta was turning the crazy hat inside out to reveal even crazier colors ....all this while rapping his verse :D   
     
    check it out below: (the craziness ensues at 3:00)

    Chip Diddy Chip is a good tune. Chipmunk is really a Grime artist rather than a Hip Hop artist or rapper. (Grime is a UK fusion of Hip Hop & Garage and tends to have much more of a urban dance music influence with faster beats than hip hop)  
     
    While most of the other tunes announced are classics (or at least slightly older tunes) Chip Diddy Chip is from the album I AM CHIPMUNK that was only released late last year.  
     
    There are also tunes from two other Grime artists announced for the UK from Tinchy Stryder and Dizzee Rascal. US hip hop fans should check them out and look out for another upcoming artist named Professor Green (he is a bit more of a rapper).  I am a long term US hip hop fan but although Grime differs slightly it's mainly listed under Hip Hop on itunes etc and there has never been a more interesting time (at least for me) in the UK scene than right now.
