Def Jam Rapstar

The air is thick, and the lights are low. You stand offstage reflecting on everything you've gone through. From writing lyrics on scraps of paper to battling in the clubs, you have held your head high throughout. You've freestyled with the best emcees around, created beats and dropped rhymes just to make it. You've been waiting for this moment your whole life and as the crowd chants your name you realize that the time has come. You grab the mic and as you rush onstage the crowd erupts with a roar, the lights go up and the beat drops — you're a Rapstar.

Def Jam Rapstar gives players the opportunity to experience the essence of what hip-hop is — the music, the battles and the swagger. Focusing exclusively on hip-hop, Def Jam Rapstar gives players the chance to become the star by rhyming, creating videos and sharing them with the world. Showcase your poetic prowess as you perform some of hip-hop's greatest songs or kick your own lyrics over beats composed by the industry's hottest producers. Sing and rap with a friend in Duet mode to achieve the highest combined score, or vie for hip-hop supremacy as you challenge them in Battle mode. Use your Xbox LIVE Vision camera to create a video of your performance and upload it online to share it with the world. Do you have what it takes to become a Rapstar?
