Not only will LeBron James lend his likeness to the cover of “NBA 2K14,” his music taste will be prominently featured in the video game, as well.
James has chosen 20 songs to be featured on the soon-to-be-released game’s soundtrack, 2K Sports announced Friday. He follows in the footsteps of rapper JAY Z, who served as executive producer for last year’s edition.
“2K is letting me take control of some important elements in ‘NBA 2K14,’ including this year’s soundtrack,” James said in a statement. “I love that I’m the first NBA 2K cover athlete to choose the soundtrack.”
Artists in James’ catalog include Daft Punk, Phil Collins, Drake, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, JAY Z, Coldplay, Robin Thicke, The Black Keys, Eminem, Fly Union, Gorillaz, Imagine Dragons, Jadakiss, John Legend, Kanye West, Rick Ross, Kendrick Lamar, Nas and Puff Daddy.
There has been no word on whether or not James’ personal 24-hour DJ had a hand in the selection process.
