    Default Anyone remember that era of Japanese games that use to have hiphop in the soundtracks

    Can we just take a moment to appreciate that nostalgic era of hiphop in japanese titles? From about 1998 to 2002 if I remember correctly. Games like Jet Set Radio, Sonic Adventure 2, and Street Fighter 3. My personal favorite is the joint from the Aquatic Mine level from SA2. Absolute classic.
    What are some of you guys favorites?

    thanks in advance

    The CRACKIN'DJ games played with various Rap genres in quirky ways. There would also be the occasional Hip Hop-inspired song to appear in games like SEGA RALLY 2 and SPACE CHANNEL 5 Part2. Not to mention other games like THE HOUSE OF THE DEAD 2, FIGHTING VIPERS 2 and Virtua Fighter4 that were sound designed around other underground genres of the time.

    B. Rap Boys (only released in the arcades) is another video game that has very underrated classic late 1980's & early 1990's hip-hop/rap soundtrack. Also B. Rap Boys is the sequel to DJ Boy.

    Some of the music are from this hip-hop group called "3 Stories High" and their album was only released in Japan.
