LeBron James has a new gig as music supervisor for the video game NBA 2K14 and he’s filled the soundtrack with a mix of hip-hop, rock and, of course, Phil Collins.
“2K is letting me take control of some important elements in NBA 2K14, including this year’s soundtrack,” James said in a statement. “I love that I’m the first NBA 2K cover athlete to choose the soundtrack.”
According to Consequence of Sound, there are 20 songs featured in the multi-platform game including Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ “Can’t Hold Us,” Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” Drake’s “Started From The Bottom” and the Collins classic “In The Air Tonight.”
Other artists featured on the soundtrack include The Black Keys, Kendrick Lamar, Robin Thicke, Imagine Dragons, John Legend, Nas, Eminem, Coldplay, Gorillaz, Rick Ross, Kanye West and Jay Z, who was NBA 2K13′s music supervisor back when he was still using the hyphen.
