Lebron James Creates

Lebron James helps the royalties for Jadakiss, Kendrick Lamar, Rick Ross and Daft Punk.

Following Jay-Z's soundtrack supervision of NBA 2K13, another high profile personality has been called upon to curate the tunes to the leading video game franchise. Miami Heat star and NBA Finals MVP Lebron James will tackle NBA 2K14's music supervision. The game will release on October 1.

Lebron's choices are confirmed by NBA.com to include Drake's "Started From The Bottom," Daft Punk and Pharrell's "Get Lucky," as well as songs from Kanye West, Jadakiss, Kendrick Lamar and fellow Ohio natives Fly Union.

"I love that I'm the first NBA 2K cover athlete to choose the soundtrack," said James in a press statement.

The Jay-Z executive-produced NBA 2K13 sold over four million copies worldwide.

    Papoose - On Top Of My Game is perfect song for NBA 2K14. Too bad LeBron is not listening to real hip hop. Although i wonder what Jadakiss track is gonna be on.

      This is the bullshit of ALL bullshits! nothing against lbj, but since its lbj he will make a trend for this type of things to happen in future sports games, not just the 2k franchise. If you love hip hop it good...if not, you are F'd.

      Yeah because Daft Punk is so obscure now..
