Last year, 2K Sports tried something different and gave Jay Z executive producer power on the annual video game.
Granted, he didn’t do much outside of some early game testing and helping with the soundtrack, but it was still a neat addition to the series. Now for NBA 2K14, 2K has went back to their roots. Instead of picking a musician/celebrity to assist in the game development, they’ve went with cover athlete LeBron James.
While James wont be given the executive producer title like Hov, he will be involved in a handful of projects pertaining to the basketball franchise – one of which is the soundtrack.
Today it was announced that the Miami Heat superstar has selected the following artists/tracks for the game, which will include top acts like the aforementioned Jay Z, Eminem, Kanye West and more:
Some of the songs featured on the game’s soundtrack are Drake’s “Started From The Bottom,” Phil Collins’ “In the Air Tonight,” Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky,” featuring Pharrell Williams and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ “Can’t Hold Us,” with Ray Dalton. Other music acts featured are Jay Z, Coldplay, Robin Thicke, The Black Keys, Eminem, Fly Union, Gorillaz, Imagine Dragons, Jadakiss, John Legend, Kanye West, Rick Ross, Kendrick Lamar, Nas and Puff Daddy.
