Video: Jay-Z, the Executive Producer of NBA 2K13
Posted on August 1, 2012 by Textbook
NBA 2K is set to return to gaming consoles for yet another year. This time, however, a new executive producers is on board, and that new executive producers is none other than rapper, entrepreneur and Brooklyn Nets’ part-owner, Jay-Z.
The big announcement for NBA 2K13 was posted on Life and Times with a teaser video you will find below, which is also the first official trailer for the game. Don’t get too excited, though. The video isn’t all that impressive. It goes for less than 30 seconds and is basically just a quick statement narrated by Michael Jordan with some gameplay footage to accompanied it. Fittingly, ”Public Service Announcement” off Jay-Z’s 2003 The Black Album is the soundtrack for the short trailer.
NBA 2K13 is set to drop on October 3, giving its players just enough time to get some practice in before the 2012/13 NBA season begins on October 30.
When it comes to 2K, I usually play with the New York Knicks, but with Hov as executive producer, the Brooklyn Nets are bound to be OP, right? Maybe I’ll give them a workout before I begin a franchise with the Knicks. I mean, Deron Williams and Joe Johnson are sure to be a fun combination to control. Then again, I do enjoy shooting basically every shoot with Carmelo Anthony when controlling New York.
Anyway, check out the teaser below, and be sure to keep up to date with all NBA 2K13 news. It sure is going to be interesting to see what Jay-Z has got cooking for the video game and what he will exactly be doing as executive producer.
UPDATE: Since learning that NBA 2K13 is being executive producing Jay-Z, the game’s offical soundtrack can now be heard after 2K posted a stream for all to listen to on their Facebook. You can also listen to it below.
