NBA 2K9 Soundtrack Revealed

2K Sports has announced the soundtrack for NBA 2K9 which includes an original recording by The Cool Kids. The track “2k Pennies” is featured in NBA Blacktop streetball mode and is available for free on the 2K Sports website.

“Video games are an important part of culture and our lifestyle. For years we’ve been playing games, but have never been inspired by the songs in them,” said Chuck Inglish and Mikey Rocks of The Cool Kids. “When 2K Sports presented us with an opportunity to create an original song for NBA 2K9, we knew we had to create a song that embodied the sport of basketball. We had to make kids everywhere appreciate the song as much as the game.”

The Cool Kids will perform on the 2K Sports Bounce Tour. Other artists on the NBA 2K9 soundtrack include N.E.R.D, Santogold, Gnarls Barkley, The Pharcyde, and Beastie Boys with an exclusive track by DJ UNK. Here’s the full list of tracks:
