Hip-Hop’s New “Hero” Worship

DJ Hero

We all know the pop culture phenomenon that is Guitar Hero (hell, my 10-year-old nephew — decked out in a Guitar Hero t-shirt — tried to lure me into an ass whooping on the game this weekend), but now hip-hop is getting the same treatment as rock n’ roll with its own game, Activision’s obviously-titled DJ Hero.

News of DJ Hero isn’t new and it’s one of a few hip-hop-inspired games due out this year, but what is new news is some of the artists who are involved in the game via tracks and character appearances. Kid Cudi and the Black Eyed Peas both have tracks included in the game while legendary turntablists Grandmaster Flash and DJ Jazzy Jeff are prominently featured as playable characters.
