  1. Okay, 2K . I see you. Best soundtrack they’ve put out in a LONG time.
    Shook Ones Part II, though.

    Only the 2nd time since 2k13 and I don't have problem with repeats if the song is good . I wish electric feel would return

    Me too! Electric Feel is an awesome song.
    That soundtrack looks awesome from Onxy to Def Leppard, loved it when they have 80's rock songs in the game. I just hope the songs will play when you calling a timeout . I remember last year a song would get played once in awhile.
    Like Sammy Hagar and Def Leppard being included. As a major 80s classic rock/pop guy and someone who doesn't listen to modern music...this at least would get me to keep a couple soundtrack songs checked instead of turning them all off.
    Sirius project, C& C music factory. Hip hop horray on this list and more retro songs means we're most likely getting a retro focused mode. As a 2k modder on pc for years this makes me very happy :)

    I see they brought back eye in the sky - Alan persons project...that song was on NBA 2k11.

    Might mean 2K18 will be a classic.

    Upon first glance it seems like 2K made an effort to replicate arena music. A lot of those tracks remind me of what was included in those Custom Arena Music files people used to create on the older 2K's (when we could choose our own Time-out music, Walking Up the Court music, Tip-Off music, etc.)
    There's so many tracks there that I've been hearing ad nauseum for years that, as always, I worry about how quickly I'll feel tortured while editing classics in the menu screen. However, I like a lot of those songs, or at least I did before I played them 5,000 times, so that's good. Also, they should really bring a nice bit of atmosphere to the broadcasts. And I can always mute the menu music anyway if needed.
    Sammy Hagar, Scorpions, & Def Leppard. Thank you for putting respect on the 80's rock scene!
    Mobb Deep (RIP), Pete Rock / C.L Smooth, Notorious BIG, Naughty by Nature, Tribe Called Quest, Eric B & Rakeem, Nas, Outkast...... even if some are repeats from 2k13.
    THANK YOU 2k!!!!!
    PS: Would've prefered M.A.A.D City over Humble, but that's just nit picking at this point. 90's hip hop & 80's rock take their rightful place on the throne!!!

    Meh too much 90s Hip-Hop.

    They have Lil Uzi in it too if you want to hear him saying "Now I do what I want" for 3 minutes straight
    I was pleasantly surprised with the soundtrack. I was thinking it was gonna be more pop music like it was this year but it wasn't. I really like it
    No comments on 'They Reminisce Over You' as THE song that defined NBA Street? Just hearing those opening strains get me ready for some street ball.
    So so many songs I wanna hear on here I'm too excited. Hip hop hooray, 93 Til, TROY, so fresh so clean, and some ther songs too. 2K has a consistent track record of having songs that might not be known at all but are fire so I trust the songs I don't know are dope. Might be weird but it's gets me excited for this years game.
    I'll be muting Def Leppard and Sammy Hagar immediately, but other than that it's a pretty solid soundtrack!
    I don't think I've heard that Mase song in 20 years.
    Ugg, Another year of turning off the sound when not playing a game.
    Not sure why the NBA 2K games have pretty much the same music every year. Where's the variety? How about some alternative? 
    I know some like this music, but can't they have more different things for people that like different styles? My old Baseball games had some good music.
    Listening now. It reminds me of the Madden 11 soundtrack where they included a lot of songs that are played in the arena. I like it for the most part, but I could have done without Lil Uzi Vert and Pitbull. They also need to get rid of the around the world playlist. I mute it every year.
    Salmo 1984 is great song for italian hip hop underground!!
    Emis Killa is crap!!
    Im happy for the return of rock!!
    Shakira why? lol
    The next is Despacito.

    .

    Good catch! If we still aren't able to add custom music I could put some nice stuff together with this soundtrack if we're able to customize all arena sounds. It was in last year to a certain extent for relocated teams. Hopefully it's expanded on and were able to use and cut these tracks up.

    While I totally get where you're coming from, as a fan of pretty much every type of music except country (don't get me started) I think it's because it really doesn't fit basketball culture. They're trying to give you some music to play and get hype to, I can't really do that to alt music.

    Bold prediction: with the heavy focus on early 90's jams both rock and hip hop, I think we will see a retro my player story arc.

    Imagine if they went with an era based approach & gave us the option to start our career in the 80's/90's/00's

    Shook Ones Pt II, All of Me (love that song at the moment), OutKast and Alan Parsons Project a.k.a "AND NOW, AT GUARD, 6-6 FROM NORTH CAROLINA, MICHAELLLL JORRDDDANNNNN"?
    Sold.
    Those alone make this the best soundtrack in about 5 years.
    These have to be the most positive responses I've seen I've been dipping into the OS 2K forums some years ago. Usually it's like 20 pages of complaining about how crap the music is to a specific poster's tastes and talk of muting the whole thing.
    That Alan Parson's Project being back in makes me think there is at the very least some kind of retro Bulls involvement since we all know who that track is synonymous with in NBA history.

    Agreed on the first part and I really hope on that second part.
    2K's been slowly creeping forward with the classics, inching them back in the direction of where they once were but I'm way past ready for them to get a next-gen touch. They all those squads chilling there, just waiting to reach their full potential.
    wow, Big UPs to the team that selected this soundtrack!! Sounding like a classic game already! T.R.O.Y. takes me back to NBA Street...^_^ I'm officially HYPED!!
