Eclectic soundtrack features Eminem & Royce Da 5’9”, Kurtis Blow, Cee-Lo, Friendly Fires, Busta Rhymes, Yelawolf, Freddie Gibbs and Travis Barker

2K Sports today announced the complete soundtrack for its upcoming NBA® 2K12, the latest installment in the top-rated and best-selling NBA basketball simulation franchise*. This year’s cross-genre soundtrack highlights both popular megastars and up-and-coming bands, with music from Eminem & Royce Da 5’9”, Travis Barker, Busta Rhymes, Lil Jon, Twista, Cee-Lo, Q-Tip and more.

The extensive collection of 28 tracks includes original and remixes created specifically for NBA 2K12, including Freddie Gibbs’ “Look Easy,” the Duck Down All-Stars 2 featuring Skyzoo, Pharoahe Monch & Smif N Wessun’s “Shout The Winners Out,” CyHi Da Prynce’s “Sideways (2K Remix),” and Alex K. and D.J.I.G.’s “Now’s My Time.”

Alex K. and D.J.I.G. are the winners of the Duck Down contest who, with the help of passionate fans, were chosen from thousands of competing producers and MCs to collaborate on an original track to be featured in NBA 2K12.

Featuring NBA legends Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson and Larry Bird as this year’s cover athletes, along with new modes and enhanced gameplay, NBA 2K12 reinforces the franchise’s commitment to quality by combining the best of simulation basketball with an unforgettable sports game soundtrack.

“Music has always been an integral part of our NBA 2K video games, as it further immerses players into the world of basketball and enhances their gaming experience,” said Jason Argent, vice president of marketing for 2K Sports. “It was important to us that the NBA 2K12 soundtrack was not only what you hear while navigating the menus, but also in real-life situations like pre-game highlight introductions and during timeouts, just as you would hear a song while at a game or watching on TV.”

Good songs, but most of them will be heavily edited...wish there was an option to hear the uncensored versions ingame..

That's what I am ****ING talking about. Cut the ****ty 2K11 soundtrack, this one has the potential to beat 2K10's one, with obviously, Kurtis Blow - Basketball! And you can never go wrong with Eminem, especially after Drake disaster (what the **** was that tbh..?)

And Cyhi's track is unbelievably sick too.

Also, I think all players mentioned in Kurtis' track will be ingame, otherwise it would make no sense to include it in game, because people would start bitching like "HE SAID JERRY WEST WTF HE ISNT IN GAME 2K U ****ING SUCK!"

Okay now that I listened to some of the songs, the soundtrack isn't as bad as I originally thought.

Maybe I'm a bit biased, but I'm slightly disappointed because SageInfinite isn't on the soundtrack with production from my boy Outbreak.
 
# 14 daca @ 08/11/11 04:51 PM
list is meh.....

Kurtis Blow is awesome! tho all these rock sounds just somehow don't fit which has also been the case with 2k10 and 2k11... the live/elite series always had the better soundtrack imo (the game sucked tho compared to 2k)...

but hey in the end i don't care... I hope the game is gonna be awesome!

I hate to say it, but this is whack. As long as they let me add my own music i really don't care.
 
# 18 STLRams @ 08/11/11 05:51 PM
Nice to see the Let's Go song,with Twista, Busta, Yellowwolf and the Fast Lane song with Em and Royce.
 
# 19 BRxSKINSx @ 08/11/11 05:51 PM
I haven't had any problems wit the 2k soundtracks.....they usually come wit it when it comes to them....even the songs that u may not like at first, you end up hearing em so much that they actually start to sound good....they can give me a soundtrack full of crappy songs as long as the game is great.....
