How to play Def Jam Rapstar without saying the N-word

Def Jam Rapstar is the first game absolutely dedicated to hip hop, and will feature over 40 songs, proprietary voice recognition, and a community video sharing feature (like YouTube, only for amateur rappers... or, like YouTube). We don't doubt that it'll be a hit, and we're actually pretty excited to give it a play. There's just one thing...

If you're playing a game with dumb songs like this in the first place, are you really classy enough to be offended by saying the lyrics in their songs?

ViciousBoston4915d ago

I think its stupid to take a word offensively that you regularly throw around with friends. If its so offensive they wouldn't use it themselves. Its a joke. I don't play that game my friends and neither should you. No one word "belongs" to a race. Its ignorance.

they also lied to us about Silent Hill HD Collection being everything like the originals. Shit, I take them to court too.

I love Def Jam Rapstar I hope they make a sequel.

Ethereal4144d ago

That game did not sell at all. Ouch...I still have 18 copies sitting around at work.

I wish they would've made a new Def Jam fighting game like Fight For New York. Now that would've sold! That's what happens when you try to follow trends.

With this gen since online is so big. WHy dont they being back games like Def jam FFNY on PSn or xbox live with online play that would be amazing. I would love to play all my old ps2 games games online like nfl 2k5,fight night,twisted metal black,ssx,granturismo3 etc.


Def Jam Rapstar developers sued over disputed song rights

hahahaha that's rich you would think all that stuff would be taken care of um I don't know before it launched lol

Contracts with music companies can be very detailed & difficult. Depending on the songs used, the music label may have rights to the song, but don't issue royalties to that artist anymore. & to deepen the situation, that artist can then request $, for the usage of the song. Not to mention the multiple artists that may be involved. Things like that would cost the music label $.

"& they don't want that,-Nooooo!"

But it could just be a case of "no, you can't use that song".
Damn! 54 tracks? I thought maybe a handful or so.
That's heist.

Does anyone even use Home anymore? I thought it was still in beta mode.

t0mmyb0y4481d ago

Always people on it. It is still in beta though lol

GregoryAllen4481d ago

Now I can show off my (absolutely no) musical talent to all my (soon to be non existent) friends!

Sarobi4481d ago

I haven't logged onto Home for about three months, i guess i'll check it out later

NyGiants74481d ago

I deleted Home awhile ago to make room on my ps3. I think Home is completely boring and has long ass load times.

Redempteur4481d ago

it has changed since then ..

NyGiants74481d ago

I go back to it like every 4 months or something like that and it's always the same, plus almost everybody on there is either trying to get a fake girlfriend or some shit or just standing there holding the psp on the pause menu.

Redempteur4480d ago (Edited 4480d ago )

/facepalm ...

first the long ass load times are gone,
second it's freaking easy to find something to do in home.
Third it has been proved in Several event ( co-op or not ) that if you talk to people in home normally , they will answer normally ..and in most case don't hésitate to help .

Be it sodium one, Xi , aurora , or sony events ( move event for example) or countless others ones i've played , i've find many players and people willing to help /or play ..the problem here is not HOME but you being unable to socialize enough.

I dunno , check alphazone or the sony foroms.. getting into the home community is easy and simple .. i suspect that you're going every x months, and don't TRY and of course it's home's fault not you. you probably didn't even try to get into Home events . i mean there was a time where people were lining up for street fighter tournament , resistance matches in HOME ... that's how diverse the community is ..
as for myself have found several very good burnout paradise players ..

there is always something to do in HOME try it ( FOR REAL this time)
