2K Sports dropped us the track listing of the upcoming NBA 2K8. The soundtrack will feature original and exclusive work from the late legendary producer JDilla with tracks from Run-DMC, Common, Q-Tip and a whole slew of other artists that have thus far not made it anywhere near my radar of musical taste.
That aside, I’m sure the music will complement the game very well. Tim Rosa, the 2K Sports Director of Brand and Lifestyle Marketing had this to say about the soundtrack:
“For the NBA 2K8 soundtrack, we wanted to produce something diverse that bridges modern hip-hop with its rich heritage in funk and groove. In addition to showcasing some of J Dilla’s finest and unreleased cuts with marquee artists like Common, Talib Kweli and Q-Tip, we’ve included a diverse group of artists whose music really captures the spirit of the game.”
NBA 2K8 is slated for release on October 2nd for the PS2, PS3, and Xbox 360.
