On Wednesday we brought you part one of our two part chat with 4mm founder, Jamie King, where we focused on Jamie's esteemed career looking back at the 12 years he spent at Rockstar, while they were at the height of their surge to the top.

Whilst also looking at the formation of 4mm in part one, today we turn our attention over to 4mm's debut game, Def Jam Rapstar, which is due to rap battle its way into homes in the coming weeks - depending on where you're situated.

We ask Jamie whether there's any room in the market for another music game, especially one specifically targeting hip-hop fans, what's the deal with the censorship in the game, whether he's conscious about social networking being tacked on in various games, and the burning question, "Where the hell is Warren G!?"

If you missed part one on Wednesday, be sure to check that out. If you've already done that, here, have a cookie and watch part two.

Quit being ungrateful, it's a good game. You want a fighting game get WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2011.
