2K Sports Announces Soundtrack for College Hoops 2K8


Take Two’s Interactive’s sports publishing label 2K games has released the line-up for the College Hoops 2K8 soundtrack. The in-game soundtrack features an eclectic line-up of some of the best of hip-hop, techno, post-punk rock and indie pop artists. The mix includes an exclusive track from the late super-producer J Dilla featuring MF Doom and Guilty Simpson, DJ Romanowski, The Black Lips and Hot Chip.

For the College Hoops 2K8 soundtrack, we wanted to explore the diversity of music tastes of todays college hoops gamers while introducing them to up and coming artists weve come to love and respect, said Tim Rosa, Director of Brand and Lifestyle Marketing for 2K Sports. The 2K Sports brand is known for redefining the sound of its games with banging soundtracks, and this latest offering stays true to that vision.

Not being a huge fan of some of these types of music, I still wonder if this soundtrack in it’s diversity hasn’t tried to please too many different people. It seems that in the end, no one may be happy with the line up.

The complete track list follows the break.
