2K Sports Lets King James Play DJ For NBA 2K14
2K Sports last year gave the musical reigns to Jay-Z so that he could help give 2K13 a memorable soundtrack. At first I thought it would take something away from the finished package and just be a cheap way for Shawn to market himself. I was pleasantly surprised to see that his fingerprint actually brought a gritty flavor to the whole game that was pretty dope.
This year’s cover boy King James gets his turn to tweak the knobs and put his stamp on 2K14 after bringing Miami home a second title in two years. Having listened to the tracks it’s a pretty decent mix of ABC NBA Playoff bumper music mixed some joints you can bump on a crisp summer day. Nicely done Bron Bron

2K Sports today revealed the complete track list for NBA® 2K14, the next installment of the top-selling and top-rated NBA video game simulation franchise*. Personally selected by the game’s cover athlete and two-time NBA Champion, LeBron James, the soundtrack boasts an eclectic mix of hip-hop, rock, and classic pop that is sure to get players ready for tip-off. Fans who want to listen to the soundtrack in advance of the game’s release on October 1st can stream the complete list on the NBA 2K14 Spotify page.
“2K is letting me take control of some important elements in NBA 2K14, including this year’s soundtrack,” said James, who successfully defended the Miami Heat’s world championship in the NBA Finals, while winning his second straight NBA Finals MVP award. “I love that I’m the first NBA 2K cover athlete to choose the soundtrack.”
