Busta Rhymes, DMX, Fat Joe and More Confirmed for Def Jam RapstarNick Puleo

Konami has just confirmed more of its music lineup for Def Jam Rapstar, one of the many co-op music games coming out this fall.  Unlike other titles, Def Jam Rapstar looks to provide something different than just a "band" experience by allowing players to not only create music, share it, and play with friends - but it also covers a unique genre that's been largely untouched to this point.  In case you missed it, we went hands on with the title during E3.

We last talked about Def Jam Rapstar in our E3 2010 hands on preview of the game.  We came away very impressed and perhaps, a little under prepared for our future careers in the hip-hop industry.  Thankfully we can get a leg up now with a simple little web trivia game called You Don't Know Rap.

As someone who's a huge fan of 90's rap music, the name Def Jam is synonymous with quality like Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dawg, Wu-Tang Clan and many, many more.  So it should come as no surprise that many of those above artists will be featured in the upcoming game Def Jam Rapstar - the first music game devoted to Hip-Hop and R&B music.  In our behind closed doors meeting with 4MM Games at E3 we got a in depth look at what the game will offer.

It's been some time since we've heard about the movement of Def Jam Rapstar, and it appears it'll be sometime before we can all show our lyrical skills rapping smooth syllables into the silver chromed grille of a microphone.  While the game has been in development for some time, it has been without a publisher.  Konami has announced that it will co-publish the game in North America along with new comer Atomic Games.  You'll also find the game on the Wii now, alongside the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions.

With music games this fall coming out that cover Rock, Pop, Classic and Techno music, you'd think the market is saturated enough.  But there's one genre that's been sorely missing from music games in general, and that's Rap/Hip-Hop.  Enter Def Jam Rapstar.
