Def Jam - Rapstar

With the success of games like Rock Band and Guitar Hero, it was only a matter of time before the rhythm game scene tried to appeal more to the Hip-Hop crowd. There were attempts a few years ago with games like Funkmaster Flex Digital Hits. More recently, DJ Hero is having large success. Def Jam is now trying it's hand with Def Jam Rapstar. An attempt at a Rap simulation. You will recite rhymes with Hip-Hop legends, participate in Rap battles and, believe it or not, record music videos with a compatible camera.

I've been talking to Donnis recently about doing a show here in NY, which I will detail later.  It was a nice surprise to see him pop up on this project.  He's making significant strides quickly and I expect he'll be a major force on the indie scene.  Check his freestyle clip below.
