First Look

D12 aren't the only rappers who see hip-hop's ability to morph into ''Fight Music.'' On March 18, EA Sports Big, in conjunction with Def Jam, will release Def Jam Vendetta, a high-octane fusion of wrestling and street fighting in which such artists as DMX, Ludacris, Method Man, and Ghostface Killah compete to see who's top dawg. The action takes place in backstreet Fight Club-style venues, with amped-up crowds and classic jams to pump you up. Since the basic goal is to antagonize, humiliate, and devastate, we have a feeling the library of trash-talk taunts and more than 1,500 attack moves will come in handy.
