Last year, hip-hop mogul Jay-Z picked the soundtrack for 2K Sports' NBA 2K13. This year, the developer is aiming closer to home, with cover athlete LeBron James choosing which songs go on the soundtrack this time around. Fans looking to listen to the entire thing prior to the game's release can stream the soundtrack on the NBA 2K14 Spotify page.
"2K is letting me take control of some important elements in NBA 2K14, including this year's soundtrack," said the real LeBron James, not the creepy one shown in the NBA 2K14 trailer at E3. "I love that I'm the first NBA 2K cover athlete to choose the soundtrack."
