Khaled Khaled – better known by his stage name DJ Khaled – will be collaborating with fellow producers DJ Premier and DJ Mustard to put together the soundtrack for the latest instalment of the NBA 2k video game franchise.
Arriving in September, NBA 2k16 will feature the largest and most expansive soundtrack in the franchise’s history, consisting of 50 tracks from several different genres that will be divided into six in-game playlists. The three producers, who have decades worth of experience and music between them, have put forward their favourite tracks to rival the success of last year’s lone curator Pharrell Williams. The soundtrack will also feature six exclusive tracks and special mixes created by each contributing producer.
DJ Khaled said of his involvement with the basketball game: “I am honored to collaborate with NBA 2K, which is such a distinguished brand and one of my favorite video games. Basketball and music are two of my favorite things, and I’m excited to light up the soundtrack with my signature sound. Expect the hottest tracks and of course hit music when you press the start button on NBA 2k16!”
