Eminem fans rejoice — Marshall is back in the mix for 2013 with a one-off, rock-themed track for the upcoming Call of Duty: Ghosts video game. If you were one of those people who enjoyed the “trendy” production turn of Em’s last full-length album, Recovery, then you’ll probably like this. I’m not one of those people, but Em’s voice is still in sharp form and that’s more than enough to make this joint tolerable. The production is handled by DJ Khalil.




Last year, David Haye infuriated Wladimir Klitschko with a t-shirt depicting both Klitschko brothers with severed heads. For 2011, Haye has upped the ante by producing an iPhone app entitled David Haye’s Knockout.

Created by Haye’s cousin Denny (who holds a doctorate in computer science), the game pits Haye against a towering, unnamed Russian opponent whose stature and attire resembles Wladimir Klitschko. Players must focus on defense and well as offense to win the game. If enough damage is done, the player is rewarded by seeing their opponent’s head fly off and into the ringside seats.

The game debuted today and can be purchased HERE.


I found this hilarious and a very innovative way to hype a fight. U.S. fans have bene ignoring the heavyweights for years, so the anticipation over here hasn’t been as big as it is in the UK. Hopefully that changes after HBO drops its “Face Off” feature. I don’t expect these two to deliver the most exciting fight in terms of in-ring action, but the atmosphere in Germany will be insane. Thankfully, we only have three more weeks.

Video game distributor Konami has revealed more names and songs for its anticipated “Def Jam Rapstar” title.

The game, which was first announced last year and displayed at the 2010 E3 conference, puts a microphone in the player’s hand and allows them to give their best karaoke rendition of classic and current Hip-Hop tracks. The title also utilizes Playstation’s Eye and Xbox’s Live Vision cameras to ensure the entire performance is evaluated before a score is determined.

The developers 4mm Studios and Terminal Reality have placed a huge focus on the game’s social networking aspects. Other gamers will be allowed to vote on your performances which will be chronicled on a Billboard-styled chart. The stat prize feature awards badges that can be sported on a player’s profile. In addition, theses accolades will be viewable by area code to allow players to verify the best performers in their region.

“Def Jam Rapstar” boasts 45 songs spanning Hip-Hop history from artists such as Ice Cube (“It Was a Good Day”), Nas (“Hate Me Now”), Public Enemy (“Fight the Power”), Diddy (“It’s All About the Benjamins”), Pete Rock & CL Smooth (“T.R.O.Y.”) and Drake (“Best I Ever Had”). Original instrumentals from producers DJ Premier, Just Blaze, Danja and others will be available for gamers to record original rhymes over.

“Def Jam Rapstar” will be available October 5th on the Playstation3, Xbox 360 and Wii consoles.
