"I even saw the lights of the Goodyear Blimp, and it read 'click to open the gallery.'"
Konami has announced release dates for Def Jam Rapstar, the Def Jam game that is actually about rapping and not about rappers beating one another unconscious. 4mm Games' karaoke title will be released on October 5 in North America, with each game/microphone bundle retailing for $69.99 on PS3 and Xbox 360, and $59.99 on Wii. The game will be out "the week of November 2, 2010" in Europe.

The company also announced that Primo and Just Blaze will provide background for the game's Freestyle Mode. For less creative types, seven more songs were added to the tracklist, including total classics "Just a Friend," "It Was a Good Day," and, in what is guaranteed to create awkward fun at parties, Salt-n-Pepa's "Push It." Push it real good past the break to see all the additions.
  • Biz Markie: Just A Friend
  • Drake: Best I Ever Had
  • Ice Cube: It Was A Good Day
  • Outkast: So Fresh, So Clean
  • Pete Rock and CL Smooth: They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.)
  • Redman and Method Man: Da Rockwilder
  • Salt-N-Pepa: Push It
