8 Memorable Hip-Hop Video Games


Def Jam Vendetta – PlayStation 2/Nintendo Gamecube – (2003)

Hip-hop has often been compared with the world of professional wrestling, and in 2003, the connection was solidified with the release of Def Jam Vendetta. The game pitted a roster of Def Jam artists like Redman, Method Man, Joe Budden and DMX in the ring against one another. The game response was mostly positive citing superb game play and basic control but lamenting the loss of “gimmick matches” like ladder and cages matches. The game would go on to spawn two more sequels over the years.
