2K Games is by far the king of the video game basketball genre. They’ve went a few years now without even being challenged. As I’m sure many know, that’s changing this year as EA will (once again) attempt to put out their own basketball game, a new NBA Live. Today EA announced their cover art, featuring Kyrie Irving. To possibly rival that announcement, 2K also unveiled their soundtrack for NBA 2K14 and it features some fantastic music.

The Black Keys? Daft Punk? Kanye? Kendrick Lamar? 2K seems to be speaking directly to me. Then again, there’s also that fairly awful Robin Thicke song. Don’t forget, Phil Collins. What say you all? Does this soundtrack tickle your fancy ears? NBA 2K14 will release on October 1st for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. It is also coming to PS4 and the Xbox One.
