RZA Joins the DJ Hero 2 Clan as a Playable Character

Posted by Trevor Chan

Head of the Wu-Tang to mix things up

With the full tracklisting of DJ Hero 2 now revealed, Activision has gone a step further and announced another playable character and the mash-ups that this producer will bring to the turntable.

RZA of the Wu-Tang Clan is the latest in a lineup of contemporary artists to lend their likeness and production skills to FreeStyleGames's upcoming sequel. RZA will be joining David Guetta, Deadmau5, Tiësto and Qbert as playable DJs when gamers embark on their disc-spinning careers from humble beginnings in the bedroom to the sold-out arena shows where the crowds are massive and the fans are sweaty.

I'm very excited to be involved with DJ Hero 2. As both a DJ and gamer from an early age, the game combines two of my passions... I loved working with the team and am excited for the fans to hear the two brand-new mixes I put together just for this game. Bong bong!

Upon the title's release, we'll be able to enjoy his mash-up of LL Cool J's "I Can't Live Without My Radio" mixed with "The Message" by Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five as well as Damian Marley's "Welcome To Jamrock" mixed with Walter Murphy's "A Fifth of Beethoven".

Make sure you stay on top of what's coming through the monitor channel by checking out the official setlist where you can watch and listen to samples of the DJ Hero 2 mash-ups that you'll be scratching and juggling when the game launches next month.

Step to the Wu--Wu-Tang Financial...

Now put Dr. Dre in it and I might consider getting this...

I'm way out of touch, I think. But a DJ is still someone who plays records of other people's music, right? Why do they get famous for playing records of other people's music?

@Golgo Some can raise it to an art in the way that they mix them together. Check out Girl Talk for proof (as long as you don't mind a few explicit lyrics). Plenty on YouTube.
