Can't wait to get buckets to these sounds. 🔊
Few things are more enjoyable than playing 2K with the perfect tunes running in the background. For NBA 2K21, gamers will get to listen to a myriad of rap acts, from Roddy Ricch and Lil Baby to Polo G and YoungBoy Never Broke Again.
With the help of UnitedMasters and the cover star of the upcoming current-gen edition of the game, Blazers guard Damian Lillard, 2K revealed the 52-song soundtrack in playlist form on Spotify.
Some of the essentials: Lil Baby's "Sum 2 Prove," Jack Harlow's "WHATS POPPIN," Pop Smoke's "Dior," Tory Lanez's "Broke In A Minute," and Polo G, Stunna 4 Vegas, NLE Choppa and Mike WiLL Made-It's "Go Stupid."
While there are some recognizable artists and titles, plenty of rising names are also included. Lillard, who goes by Dame D.O.L.L.A. behind the mic, will have two songs premiere exclusively in the game.
“To be on the cover alone is a big deal to me, but to be on the cover and also have my music be a part of the game is a huge accomplishment as well," he was quoted as saying. "Personally, I've been introduced to new artists, songs and genres that I might hear on the radio, but I heard it first on NBA 2K."
To keep the vibes fresh, 2K will update the soundtrack throughout the year, creating "one of the largest soundtracks ever in a sports video game." In fact, the next-gen edition with Zion Williamson on the front will come with 202 songs before even more are added.
