“As I continue to travel the globe, I’m always amazed how Hip Hop has impacted youth culture in every country around the world” stated Kevin Liles, President and CEO of Def Jam Enterprises. “Each territory is creating their own movement, style, artists, and songs that resonate with the Hip Hop experience in their respective country. Hip Hop is global, therefore Def Jam Rapstar must also be global, and provide local content providers the opportunity to represent Hip Hop in their own language in their own voice.”

Def Jam Rapstar has more than 40 of the greatest Hip Hop tracks of all time from old school style Slick Rick’s “Children’s Story” to Young Jeezy ft Kanye West “Put On”.
