I am a fan of hip hop, its a form of music that started with my generation and has grown and expanded to obtain a global appeal. When I first heard about DJ Hero I was skeptical, how was this going to work? Do I really want to buy another peripheral? The answers are out there and they will change the way we approach music games for a long time to come."
