DJ Hero 2 To Feature Eminem, Dr. Dre, More

UPDATE: The full list includes 2Pac, Warren G, Young Jeezy, B.o.B., DJ Shadow, Nas, and countless others.

Video game publisher Activision is prepping the October release of the sequel to their hit music game DJ Hero, and the makers aren't holding back when it comes to the music. From hip-hop heavyweights like Eminem, Dr. Dre and LL Cool J, to pop chart toppers like Lady Gaga and Rihanna, to even techno luminaries  Deadmau5 and David Guetta, they've enlisted over 100 of today's hottest artists to provide music for the game's soundtrack.

"With DJ Hero 2, we wanted to create the ultimate party experience of 2010, and that meant not only revamping and adding social and multiplayer game modes, including full microphone support, and all-new levels of creative freedom, but also mixing and mashing hits from over 100 of the biggest and most popular artists on the planet," said FreeStyleGames Music Director Dan Neil. "We can’t wait to drop details on which of these artists' hottest tracks, as well as how we’ve mixed them together exclusively for the game, later this year."

DJ Hero 2 is also upping the ante in the gameplay department. The game will feature a number of new gameplay modes, including DJ Battles and Party Play, that afford the player the opportunity to play with or against friends. Another new mode is the Empire Mode, in which a single player embarks on a campaign to become the head of an entertainment empire.  

"With the success of DJ Hero and overwhelming response to its soundtrack, we are excited to be working even more closely with our label partners, including Interscope Geffen A&M, on DJ Hero 2 to hand-pick the best music from the most recognizable artists in the world," said Activision's Vice President of Music Affairs Tim Riley.

Steve Berman, Vice Chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M, added, "We're excited to bring the hottest hits from our biggest artists to DJ Hero 2 including Eminem, Lady Gaga, Soulja Boy, 50 Cent, M.I.A., Timbaland, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and many more. The blockbuster lineup of music we’ve contributed, when mixed by world renowned DJs exclusively for the game, will help deliver one of the best soundtracks in all of entertainment."
