Remember 4mm, the firm formed recently by Rockstar Games co-founders Jamie King and Gary Foreman? Its first game is Def Jam Rockstar, according to this IGN piece.

What’s it about? Rapping. Fucking dope.

“There are not very many products out there that speak directly to the hip-hop consumer base,” said Def Jam marketing bod Lauren Wirtzer.

“More than just a music game, this is a game that really incorporates all of the crucial elements of this lifestyle. It’s not just about music, it’s about swagger.”

There’s a trailer after the break. Now platforms yet. E3 for more.
