Today, 2K announced what artists players can look forward to hearing in when they load up NBA 2K21 and browse the menus or take on friends in the neighborhood. The soundtrack features 52 tracks in all including two exclusive new songs from NBA 2K21 cover athlete Damian Dame D.O.L.L.A. Lillard as well hits from, Travis Scott, Stormzy, Roddy Ricch, Wale, Pop Smoke, and The Strokes. The playlist was “meticulously selected by 2K to deliver an immense number of curated beats for a visceral in-game experience,” and is described as “one of the largest and most definitive collections of music ever assembled for a sports video game.’
No song titles are given, simply the musicians. They’ll include What’s Poppin’ rapper Jack Harlow, Miami favorite Rick Ross, and the man who seems to be popping up everywhere on tracks, Travis Scott. Also among the artists is Juice WRLD. The video announcement of his inclusion comes on the heels of his posthumous release, Legends Never Die, which arrived on July 10. Juice died in early December of 2019. And if you want to Buy NBA 2K21 MT Points, visit 5mmo.com, a professional online in-game currency store.
2K says that additional artists and tracks will be added to the game over time via updates, and that the next-gen version will feature 202 songs at launch, with even more added later “spanning across hip-hop, R&B, electronic, pop, and rock.” Current-gen versions will be stuck with the 52 songs that launch with the title. Suddenly that $70 premium for the next-gen version of the game starts to make a little sense as we get a clearer picture of 2K’s support strategy NBA 2K21 on next-gen consoles.
