Here's The Music LeBron James Chose For NBA 2K14

Sports video game soundtracks do matter — just spend 20 minutes in the menus of NCAA Football 14. 2K Sports has done a good job with theirs, even before bringing in Jay-Z last year to both "executive produce" the game and make that job into a verb. This year, cover star LeBron James got to pick NBA 2K14's set list.

This is what he — or some member of his management team — chose:

  • Big Krit, Cool 2 be Southern
  • Cris Cab, Paradise (On Earth)
  • Coldplay, Lost!
  • Daft Punk (feat. Pharrell Williams), Get Lucky
  • Drake, Started From The Bottom
  • Eminem, Not Afraid
  • Fly Union, Long Run
  • Gorillaz, Clint Eastwood
  • Imagine Dragons, Radioactive
  • Jada Kiss (feat. Ayanna Irish), Can't Stop Me
  • Jay Z, The Ruler's Back
  • John Legend (feat. Rick Ross), Who Do We Think We Are
  • Kanye West, All Of The Lights
  • Kendrick Lamar, Now Or Never
  • Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (feat. Ray Dalton), Can't Hold Us
  • Nas (feat. Puff Daddy), Hate Me Now
  • Phil Collins, In The Air Tonight
  • Robin Thicke (feat. Pharrell), Blurred Lines
  • The Black Keys, Elevator
  • The Black Keys, Howlin For You

We'll see how much of that has to be hilariously censored, courtesy of the ESRB and it's yes-goddammit-we-mean-E-for-everyone-rating, once the game releases October 1.



      should've been the rza to produce it. fuck jay-z

    By far one of the shitiest NAS songs available.

      Agreed. I don't mind Nas (got a few of his albums), but song is just plain stupid.

    And here I was getting ready to hate this because Lebron James. Downright acceptable as far as sports games soundtracks go.

    I'm positive that less than 3 of these were actually picked by him. I doubt anyone would pick that many recent songs. When they have lived through at least 20 years of good music.

      Unless they said to choose mainly recent ones to stay current for the market. Not a stretch really.

    That's a pretty solid set-list tbh. Especially Big KRIT, I hope this gets him more fans.

    After getting my ears raped by the crap Jay-Z chose last year, I'm glad to see Lebron has picked some decent music, that can be enjoyed by people with ears. PHIL COLLINS.

    I didn't mind the soundtrack in NBA 2K13 (although some tracks had to be heavily censored)...2K14's set list is pretty good as well

    Although I would love to be able to import your own tracks into the game
