2K today announced that NBA 2K16, the newest iteration of the top-rated video game simulation series for the last 15 years*, will feature the most extensive soundtrack in NBA 2K history with three genre-defining collaborators at the helm - legendary hip-hop producer DJ Premier, renowned producer DJ Khaled, and super-producer DJ Mustard. As one of the most successful entertainment properties of the last decade, NBA 2K16’s partnership brings together their unique creative direction in curating more than 50 tracks and contributing a total of six new exclusive tracks to this year’s title.
  • “I am excited to be a part of the ongoing series of NBA 2K. As a sports fan, it was already fun before the work began. NBA 2K16 will be another big hit, especially alongside DJ Mustard and DJ Khaled bringing our different musical styles to the game.” - DJ Premier
  • “I am honored to collaborate with NBA 2K, which is such a distinguished brand and one of my favorite video games. Basketball and music are two of my favorite things, and I'm excited to light up the soundtrack with my signature sound. Expect the hottest tracks and of course hit music when you press the start button on NBA 2K16! We The Best! Who?!!! NBA 2K16 that's who!!!!” – DJ Khaled
  • “It’s an honor and a blessing to be part of the NBA 2K musical family alongside legends like Pharrell, Jay Z, DJ Premier and DJ Khaled.” - DJ Mustard
NBA 2K16’s soundtrack will be comprised of six in-game playlists, including three lists individually curated by each producer, an international “Around the World” playlist, the 2K Classics Mixtape featuring fan favorites from previous 2K titles, and a master playlist that includes all 50 tracks from this year’s selection. The expansive music library spans a wide range of genres, including hip-hop, electronic, pop, rock and alternative, from throwback tracks from the ‘70s through today’s Top 40, including The Ramones’ “Blitzkrieg Bop,” Nas’ “Represent,” and Zedd’s “I Want You to Know” featuring Selena Gomez.

Gamers will also have the opportunity to listen to all-new instrumental tracks created by each producer, which will be available in-game at various points during the MyPLAYER and MyGM experiences.

“As we continue to identify ways to elevate the NBA 2K franchise for our fans, we wanted to give them more options and choices than ever before with this year’s soundtrack,” said Alfie Brody, Vice President of Marketing for NBA 2K. “By bringing these influential producers onboard, fans will be able to experience in-game music in unique, customizable ways.”

Developed by Visual Concepts, NBA 2K16 is not yet rated by the ESRB. NBA 2K16 will be available for PlayStation®4 system and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Xbox 360; and Windows PC platforms on September 29, 2015.

Fans can pre-order NBA 2K16 at participating North American retail and online vendors, ensuring they receive their copy and in-game bonuses ahead of the game’s September 29 release date.

Good. Hopefully these guys can get 2K's soundtrack back to where it used to be back in the mid 2000s. These last few years have been God awful. Made even worse by the fact that we don't have custom sounds yet. NBA 2K15's soundtrack is grating. I was playing College Hoops 2k8 the other day and noticed how there wasn't a single non fight song on there I hated. Didn't love ALL of them, but they fit the game well. Hopefully 2k16 is more of that than this curated mess we have been getting the last few years.

Great selection of DJs this year... plus with the playlist of 'fan favorite' tracks from previous years... this will most likely be voted the BEST NBA 2k soundtrack of all time.

Yep...because the same people who work on Association mode work on implementing music, right?
 
# 11 AceDawg5 @ 07/09/15 09:12 AM
This is pretty big, I wish we could use custom soundtracks like MLB the Show had on last gen, but with this many tracks to choose from it should keep it fresh for longer than previous versions. This is good news
 
# 12 kolanji @ 07/09/15 09:50 AM
Wow that is very impressive when it comes to audio...am hoping it doesnt stop at music but arena sounds with the crowds, rim chants boos etc...


What i would like from NBA 2k would be theme audio like NBC had when breaking away from the action
 
# 13 scottyp180 @ 07/09/15 09:57 AM
DJ Premier is all I need to see. As a hip hop fan I know I can trust his selections.
 
# 14 Rubio809 @ 07/09/15 09:59 AM
Never heard of them.
 
# 15 grodbetatted @ 07/09/15 10:09 AM
And again they get big named people on here to create a nothing but commercial music sound track... Sigh
 
# 16 The 24th Letter @ 07/09/15 10:28 AM
Did you just call Premo commercial?
 
# 17 CHIEFxxROCKEM @ 07/09/15 10:34 AM
Dj Mustard, the King of recycling beats
