If Def Jam makes another fighting game, here's the label's potential roster of fighters

What's your Def Jam fighting game dream team?


Music lable Def Jam teased fans of their previous fighting games by asking who they'd like to see on the cover of a future game, but the tweet made sure to emphasize this is just a hypothetical situation. The music company continues to fan the flames for this hypothetical experience with this new tweet:

Regarding location, one would hope that a future Def Jam fighting game would include a plethora of cities considering the label's diverse collection of artists. With that being said, we wanted to share a list of current hot Def Jam artists that would be ideal fighters for a sequel.

  • Logic
  • Dave East
  • Justin Bieber
  • 2 Chainz
  • Big Sean
  • Desiigner
  • Jadakiss
  • Fabolous
  • Jeezy
  • Jhene Aiko
  • Pusha T
  • Q-Tip
  • Teyana Taylor
  • Vince Staples
  • YG
  • Alesso

This isn't a lengthy list of potential fighters, but the label could reach back into its rich history and get previously signed artists like Nas, the Wu-Tang clan, Kanye West, Rihanna, and a whole lot more. What's your dream team for a Def Jam fighting game sequel? Let us know in Chatty below and stay tuned to Shacknews for additional updates.

      They should make other record labels pay an entry fee if they want their rappers in the game. Let some of the Lil * into the game.

      This isn't a lengthy list of potential fighters, but the label could reach back into its rich history and get some actually good artists instead

      Look, I know they weren't ever really associated with Def Jam, but I'll be on board if they confirm the Mos Def / Amy Winehouse teamup that I'm 100% positive would have actually happened and made WWE appearances if she hadn't joined the 27 club. =(

      Fight for New York was a damn amazing game. So much fun with 4 players.
