Everybody loves a good mashup, and DJ Hero are giving you the chance to get in on the action, no matter how untalented you might think you are. While they haven't quite brought Girl Talk or 2ManyDJs onboard, two big names are dropping rhymes in a handful of exclusive mixes available now for download within the game.
The creatively titled Jay-Z vs. Eminem Mix Pack delivers three stand-out tracks from each legend, smashed together into three all-new tracks. Think about Can I Get A... mixed with Lose Yourself and you're on the right track.
Jamie Jackson, Creative Director, FreeStyleGames explains:
"From sold out concerts to #1 albums to double digit Grammy Awards, JAY-Z and Eminem define what it means to be a successful artist.
The DJ Hero soundtrack is an expanding collection of chart-topping hit music - mixed in an all-new way - that can only be experienced in our game, and with the addition of the JAY-Z vs. Eminem Mix Pack, players and their friends can not only experience, but interact with over 100 unique mixes."
In this new pack, you'll also get Show Me What You Got combined with Shake That, and Jay-Z's classic Encore coupled with Eminem's Without Me.
It'll set you back 640 Microsoft packs, and will be exclusive to the Xbox 360 for a little while before launching on the PS3 and Wii on March 25th.
...if you're really into this mash-up thing, the DJ Hero Extended Mix Pack 01 is also out now, featuring two "party rockin' grooves": 50 Cent featuring Mary J. Blige "All Of Me" mixed with Queen's "Radio Ga Ga" and "DARE" by Gorillaz vs. Public Enemy's "Can't Truss It" ...and then there's the David Guetta Mix Pack 01 which boasts remixes of "On The Dance Floor" featuring will.i.am and apl.de.ap of the Black Eyed Peas, "When Love Takes Over" featuring Kelly Rowland and the chart-topping "Sexy Chick" featuring Akon.
