2K are bringing their NBA 2K16 game to us in September and we’ve already found out some of the important things such as the cover art and what Collector’s Editions will be available for us to spend our cash on.
Today 2K revealed who will be working on the soundtrack to the game, a trio of award-winning producers who will choose the music for the game. DJ Mustard, DJ Khaled, and DJ Premier will collaborate to create what 2K call their “biggest soundtrack in NBA 2K history.”
On being chosen by 2K the producers had this to say:
“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 sountrack will consist of six in-game playlists which includes three which will be created by each producer. Also included will be an “Around the World” playlist, 2K Classics Mixtape, and a master playlist.
The music library for the master playlist includes all 50 tracks selected for this year’s iteration of NBA 2K.
