Def Jam: Icon – Your Questions Answered

Readers of the site will remember “Def Jam: Icon – YOU Ask The Questions” by the nature of it. It asked questions of you – the readers – about Def Jam: Icon.

Consider those questions answered…
Here’s the gimme answer. Def Jam: Icon is being released on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Now into the good stuff.

By far, the most asked question was about the artists and entertainers involved in Def Jam: Icon, so here’s a complete list of the artists and entertainers involved:

  • Anthony Anderson
  • Jim Jones
  • Method Man
  • Sticky Fingaz
  • Big Boi
  • Kano
  • Mike Jones
  • Summer Walker
  • Bun B
  • KD Aubert
  • Nina Nicole
  • T.I.
  • E-40
  • Kevin Liles
  • Paul Wall
  • Tego
  • Fat Joe
  • Lil Jon
  • Redman
  • The Game
  • Funkmaster Flex
  • Ludacris
  • Robert Dolan
  • Young Jeezy
  • Ghostface Killah
  • Mayra Veronica
  • Russell Simmons
  • James Hong
  • Melyssa Ford
  • Sean Paul

The next most asked question was about the track listing, so here’s that list as well:

  • “Kryptonite” – Big Boi (i.e., Purple Ribbon All-Stars feat. Big Boi)
  • “Tell Me When To Go” – E-40
  • “Go Hard or Go Home” – E-40
  • “Make It Rain” – Fat Joe
  • “The Champ (Remix)” – Ghostface
  • “Crunk Muzik” – Jim Jones
  • “We Fly High” – Jim Jones
  • “What’s that Smell” – Konkrete feat. Big Boi
  • “Get Crunk” – Lil Jon
  • “Get Low” – Lil Jon (and the Eastside Boys)
  • “Get Back” – Ludacris
  • “Ante Up” – M.O.P.
  • “Da Rockwilder” – Method Man & Redman
  • “Back Then” – Mike Jones
  • “Got it Sewed Up – Remix” – Mike Jones
  • “Hate Me Now” – Nas
  • “Sittin’ Sidewayz” – Paul Wall
  • “Trill” – Paul Wall
  • “Rush Da Security ” – Redman
  • “Let’s Go” – Redman
  • “Head in the Zone” – Sean Paul
  • “All Out” – Sean Paul
  • “What You Know” – T.I.
  • “Top Back” – T.I.
  • “One Blood” – The Game
  • “Scream on ‘Em” – The Game
  • “I Do This” – Young Jeezy
  • “Soul Survivor” – Young Jeezy
  • “It’s Going Down ” – Young Joc

After that, there were a lot of questions about the length of the single player campaign, dubbed “Build-A-Label”. Well, i’ve been notified that the campaign can be played in 12-15 hours using your custom character made with the Create-A-Character feature (which happened to be the next most asked question). As far as arenas go, there could be as many as eight.

Information regarding possible Xbox Live Marketplace or PlayStation Store downloads is scarce, but i’d bet bottom dollar that they’re at least looking into it.

I hope that was enough depth for you! Have a question that I didn’t cover here? Ask away…

    I really enjoyed…naw I loved da game. But da only question is…Will there be a DJI2??? Cuz the end of the game had me thinking alot, and it can’t be over yet. too many hints was giving in the game before I even beat it (For the 2 time). I really need part 2 to complete the story mode. And I also think Carver was Russell Simmons, or he just looks like russell. But part 2 should be able to buy a car, put rims on it. a mean paint scheme, I mean the werks!!! Spinners, daytons, etc.. At least give the character a choice or ol’ school cars to choose from. Git at ya boi. And good lookin on da Icon game. Swindle

    It would be pretty sick to see a DJ: Icon 2, Dru912. Let’s just hope they update the fighting system a bit – it felt kinda slow.

    Max, if the track is yours, it gives you a boost.

    me and my friend both beat it and neither of us got any unlockable chains or clothes, i did like 20 taunts a fight and bought alot of clothes, still nothing, im stumped. the replay value is one of the lowest of any game. all the modes out of build a label are exactly the same, pick someone to fight with a song and one pf eight boring places. i thought it was going to be like fight for NY but with better grafics and gameplay. the grafics were better but the ighting sucked and no finishers, come on.
