Lebron James Plays DJ For NBA 2K14 Soundtrack


Lebron James is the biggest thing in basketball, NBA 2K is the biggest thing in sports gaming. Put the 2 together and it makes for one the most anticipated releases in basketball video gaming history. Lebron is the cover athlete and in the prime of his career coming off back to back titles, this is his very 1st video game cover. Not only is he just some cover boy but the Akron native was actually the 1st player that chose the songs for the games soundtrack. James when asked about picking songs for the soundtrack expressed the following 2K is letting me take control of some important elements in NBA 2K14, including this year’s soundtrack, I love that I’m the first NBA 2K cover athlete to choose the soundtrack.” So just how did LBJ do selecting songs for NBA 2K14?? I'll let you be the judge.


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”




So first order of business when addressing Lebron's selections are that he actually does listen to Imagine Dragons, he kept shooting basketballs to it in the Dr.Dre Beats commercial so I got curious so at least that has been answered. All in all I think he did a great job of picking songs that are true to his personality but that also appeal to all fans there is something for everybody on here. Hip Hop fans, pop fans, alternative fans and just fans of music in general all have something they can enjoy on the soundtrack. For me personally I'm a big fan of guys like Kendrick Lamar, Jadakiss, Big Krit so songs like “Now or Never” and “ You Can't Stop Me” really jump out at me. Coldplay, Cris Cab and Robin Thicke are going to appeal to a lot of people because they have a huge fan base. One song that really jumps out reading that play list is Phil Collins-In the air tonight. That’s not really the kind of song you would expect in a normal basketball game but NBA 2K is far from normal. So the songs on here are upbeat, some are hype and others just put you in that mind frame as if you were about to take the floor for shoot around on the hardwood.




I have always loved the NBA 2K franchise and have lots of memories playing it amongst my friends so looking forward to another great game. Can't wait for further developments of the game to come out but this is a great first step.







Well done Lebron!!

  1. Thanks for your article. I would also love to say that a health insurance dealer also utilizes the benefit of coordinators of a group insurance policies. The health insurance broker is given a list of benefits sought by anyone or a group coordinator. Exactly what a broker does indeed is seek out individuals or coordinators which best match those wants. Then he offers his referrals and if both sides agree, the actual broker formulates binding agreement between the two parties.
