Legendary producer honored post mortem

2K Sports today announced the details of the soundtrack to NBA 2K8. Some of the exclusive and original tracks for the game include material by late producer J Dilla (aka Jay Dee) with Common, Q-Tip, Talib Kweli and Madlib providing vocals. Other tracks include classics from The Highlighters Band and Ernie and The Fabulous Jades along with offerings from Quasimoto, Run-DMC and Devo.
"J. Dilla was one of the industry's greatest talents," said Q-Tip. "This recording is reflective of his legacy and of the wonderful body of work that he left behind."

"For the NBA 2K8 soundtrack, we wanted to produce something diverse that bridges modern hip-hop with its rich heritage in funk and groove," said Tim Rosa, 2K Sports Director of Brand and Lifestyle Marketing. "In addition to showcasing some of J Dilla's finest and unreleased cuts with marquee artists like Common, Talib Kweli and Q-Tip, we've included a diverse group of artists whose music really captures the spirit of the game."

NBA 2K8 will release on PS2, PS3 and Xbox 360 on October 2, 2007.
