NBA2K Soundtracks (2K5 – 2K19)

It’s just a video of NBA2k19 cover athlete LeBron James interviewing Travis Scott, who recently made the chart-topping Astroworld, a baby with Kylie Jenner and the soundtrack for the latest 2K video game.

As executive producer and curator, James Harden’s famous shootaround partner helped assemble a massive list of songs made by everyone from Migos to Bruno Mars to Dilated Peoples to The Gap Band to NBA trainer Dribble2Much! As expected, there’s also a few songs (five to be exact) with Scott on it.

You can listen to the whole album below, or on Spotify, or scroll down a little more to revisit the past soundtracks and some of my favorite songs from each. FYI: I’m an old-school hip-hop and that’s why you are going to see artists like Rakim, Nas and Chuck D over young artists that are where they are because of these pioneers.
