CVG: Tim Ingham's no Rapstar - but he knows a game-changer when he sees one...
Not for me.
Rapstar is a bad rap game. - only 45 songs, which is just begging for DLC milking - all the songs are radio edits - a ton of big-name rappers missing like Jay Z, Ghostface Killa, and Eminem.
lmao wtffff how can they screw a rap game that much!
Wow this game looks like a joke.. It's a shame people listen to mainstream rap.
with music games now days. Every one that has been released is constructed as sort of a gateway drug. Get people into the game, then hit them with the songs/artists that they REALLY want to hear. It doesn't matter whether it's SingStar, Lips, Rock Band, Guitar Hero, etc. they ALL have gaps in there catalogs. Maybe it also comes down to trying to find a happy medium in terms of individual tastes are concerned. They probably should have given the mature audience the opportunity to play the uncut vs. radio edit saying as though there are some tracks that will probably be missing 3-5 seconds worth of verses.
. *READ THE ARTICLE* Oh. *LEAVES*
Much like candy, you throw the (w)rappers out, in music, and especially in gaming..
is this for real? who the hell is this? is this real?! " the Big Boi of the 'burbs; the Common of the commuter belt; the Talib Kweli of the greater Hertfordshire area." =| >> my face
Honestly, why do people even like rap? They are just cursing and holding on to their dicks all the time like they want to be sure that they are man and not woman. Rap is shit.
Good way to show how ignorant you are.
I live in NYC. Rap is all around me and it's all about cursing. They curse and put woman down all the time. I'm sorry but rap is trash. Whoever listens to it and likes it are ignorant or just have some kind of mental damage.
Ares84PS3 is quite right. I live in NYC too and all these little kids worship rappers like 50 cent..sad really.
then what is rock???
and Lil Wayne is jail bait.
Both of you are extremely short-sighted when it comes to the breadth and span of the genre of rap music. I will give you that a lot of today's rap is full of vulgarity for no reason and misogynistic overtones. But, that is a function of the cookie cutter mentality of the music industry (i.e., what sells is what we produce...not too much more). If you do some due diligence and take time to really look for good music, which is almost a necessity today, you will find some incredibly talented artists. You wouldn't so quickly surmise that Justin Bieber represents the full extent of popular music, or that Nickelback represents everything rock. So, why jump to such conclusions about rap? I will give you personal tastes when it comes to music, but why must someone who enjoys rap (even if it IS the mindless and offensive form) be ignorant? As a form of entertainment, how many movies have you watched that have the same level of vulgarity, nudity, male bravado, etc. and have not complained!?!?
is what your comment summarizes and I disagree. I generally don't like rap at all...doesn't make it crap.
Get off your ignorant dildo every music genre has its douches and respectable ppl.
Let's not confuse things here. Every music genere has it's assholes but rap music only has assholes. Also....dildo...if you like to use it fine. But don't assume that everyone is like you.
So you mean to tell me that you, a person who does not listen to rap/hip hop, has listen to every single artist (from that genre) in order to make that generalized statement? I think Phonte (from Little Brother) said it best.. They tryin to blame this rap **** for all of our ills Like I can stick you up with a mic Like I can rape you with a verse or use a verb as a knife Like before Kool Herc, everything was alright Like y'all wasn't callin black women **** before "Rappers Delight"
Thank you for proving my point.
Rap is shit these days, but back in the '80s and '90s, it was awesome.
you use to listen to eminem. Or any rock gruop from the 80's. They all talked about sleeping with promiscuous women, using vulgor language and such. It only became a problem when rap did it. Rappers like Nas, Common, lauren hill, Ja rule etc. Differ from the Rappers you speak about. It may have imploded due to commercialization, due to poor management, but so has rock(nt as much but yeah). I don't understand why people who are ignorant towards a subject are always the first to speak.
hell yeah man, rap sucks, metal all the way thats some true fukin music...
Rap is crap mostly so more like the most worthless game of the year. Not saying all rap is garbage but about 99% of the mainstream stuff is. I do like certain rap elements in music e.g. Massive Attack is just epic. But people like 50 cent and the like = garbage
99% of the mainstream stuff..... Why are you even listening to MAINSTREAM hiphop When you you're aware that The underground stuff is better?
_I_ don't listen to it. I'm just saying that is what a lot of people hear and listen to. I don't understand why people think it's cool to boast about how they were shot/in jail/smacking women/robbing/ etc Not to mention most of the mainstream stuff totally rips beats from 80s music and pass it off as theres. Some of these guys even rip it off from indie youtube guys..pathetic. @TreMillz How can you relate getting drunk and sleeping with girls to robbing and killing people?
The mainstream music is all the same. You tell one of these artist to get on the mic and freestyle without mentioning money, cars, diamonds, clothes and hoes. Everybodys style is the same. Cookie-cutter turnkey rhymes and beats. Sad.
But its cool to talk about getting drunk, sleeping with this and that chick and getting high right? oh...dont alot of artist say that, you like heavy metal, rock, pop AND rap artist?
When you talk about "ripping off" beats it's called sampling. This is one of the components of the music. Most of those 80's tracks included samples. I understand that today they pretty much re-make instead of sample. But, the idea is the same. As for the BOASTING about all of that. Some rappers AREN'T boasting, they are telling tales or warning. Others, however, are just playing up to a character that sells...much like Ossie Osbourne or Alice Cooper did in the past. Regardless of whether it stealing and killing or drinking and drugging, we'd have to admit that these are just entertainment devices thrown into the music (rock, rap, pop, etc.) to try to make it interesting. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
If you love chicken... YES
This is like saying is Susan Boyle the most attractive singer out there? NO......JUST...NO And agreed PLB, If I got shot as many times as 50 cent Id take the hint and realise Im clearly not the most popular person in the world. Sporting it like trophies is just pure lame, may as well brag about the amount of women who turn you down in a week
wow , just looked at the tracklist , so bad! but im glad to see b.i.g , wu tang and nas get some one the underground rap in and then we are talking : D :P
Black Ops is the only game that matters this year.
The game has potential, but I really think the author's exaggerating the importance of it. There's some hip-hop I like, but not much. Call me when this game has "Baby got back" in it EDIT: also, every Heavy Rain fan disagrees with this headline
