Like all music games, 4mm's Rapstar will live and die on the strength of its tracklist. Convenient topic, that, since we've got hold of the names of seven of the game's tracks.
Before we go on, it's important to note that this is only seven tracks. And all appear to be for the game's contemporary section (the game's tracklist will ultimately span the past three decades of hip-hop). But anyway, enough disclaimers; here's the list:
Lil Wayne-"Mrs. Officer"
2 Much-"Wild Thang"
Dem Franchize Boyz-"Lean Wit It, Rock Wit It"
Lil Kim-"Put Your Lighters Up"
Black Eyed Peas-"My Humps"
MOP- "Ante Up" (Murray/Ginnage/Pitman)
Might not be to your liking, sure (definitely not to mine), but then, like SingStar, isn't that the whole reason this game exists?
Reached for comment on Wednesday, Rapstar officials had this to say about the song list:
"There has been no official confirmation of the finalized track list for Def Jam Rapstar. Any reports detailing confirmed tracks or artists in the game are speculative and rumor at this point. 4mm and Def Jam Interactive are working with their wide array of music label partners to deliver an amazing line up for the final product that will represent the best of the past 30 years of hip-hop. We will have more official news and information to share on Def Jam Rapstar soon."
