2K Sports announced today that the legendary DJ Premier will be one of three producers that will curate in-game playlists for the next installment of the NBA 2K series. Preemo will be joined by DJ Mustard and DJ Khaled to deliver specific playlists that will cater to fans of each producer. Of course, that means you’ll get hip hop classics from DJ Premier.
Here’s the release that 2K Sports released:
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.
And a word from DJ Premier…
“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.”
