    WHAT? I don't have anything with the rap music, but this game is really terrible, the songs (in my opinion) are terrible, is like a terrible version of Lips and Rock Band, I prefer the fight games of Def Jam, this karaoke version is bad.

    Overall, Def Jam: Rapstar is a one-of-a-kind karaoke game that fans of rap music will appreciate, despite the censoring of the songs. There's just about enough content in the game to justify a full price purchase and with downloadable content on offer, this could be a title that's around for some time to come.

    It has its flaws, but if you like rap or hip-hop, you'll surely have fun, especially in multiplayer.

    Def Jam Rapstar is the perfect rap game for any wannabe rap stars out there. With 40 tracks that span the entire rap genre, Def Jam Rapstar is only let down by a few technical issues and not having nearly enough iconic tracks for us to get our 'gangsta' on to.
