As we inch closer and closer to the NBA 2K22 release date, more details are slowly making their way to the very excited sports and gaming community. The 2K soundtrack is always a highly anticipated event and has been a staple for the last two decades not just with established artists, but for rising underground artists looking for a bigger platform to introduce themselves and their music. This time around, things are going to look a little bit different for the NBA 2K music community.
'NBA 2K22' Unveils New Music Discovery Soundtrack Experience
Some cool music updates from 2K
Last week, 2K announced that NBA® 2K22, the next version of the top-rated and top-selling NBA video game simulation series, is unveiling a new approach to its in-game soundtrack that includes an all-new integration with Seasons, along with an array of music from top artists, including Aitch, Freddie Gibbs, Gunna, Megan Thee Stallion, Metro Boomin, Saweetie, Skepta, Smino, Travis Scott, and many more.
And according to Alfie Brody, Vice President of Global, NBA 2K will continue to build upon its strong relationships with musicians.
“NBA 2K has become a global platform for music discovery and that continues with NBA 2K22. This year, we are creating a dynamic soundtrack, complete with early access to unreleased tracks, new artists, and opportunities for fans to become part of the experience and solidify their place in video game history.”
That’s not all though, players will also be able to discover music throughout the year via “First Fridays,” where new songs will be added to the soundtrack on the first Friday of every new Season. Each update will feature a mix of high-profile and up-and-coming artists to support music discovery and growth within NBA 2K22. More details on what will be included in each Season will be shared later in August.”
This year will also introduce brand-new ways for aspiring artists to become a part of the NBA 2K series music experience with an all-new producer experience. The all-new Producer Series will integrate a Beats Pack into the game and create an opportunity for the community to record their best verses over the beats and showcase their talent. More details on the Producer Series and even more ways aspiring artists can be involved in the NBA 2K soundtrack which will be unveiled closer to launch.
Starting September 10, players can experience all the music available in-game at launch and beyond on the official NBA 2K22 playlist; check out the 2K Beats official site for more information.
