Snoop Dogg loves 2K Sports' NBA 2K series -- so much so, in fact, that he has recorded an exclusive track, the "NBA 2K Theme," for NBA 2K11. But Snoop is only one of more than 30 artists who appear on the 27-song soundtrack for the game. Other highlights include Drake, Outkast's Big Boi, Kid Cudi, and Ron Artest. That's right -- the Los Angeles Lakers small forward, who released a 21-track rap album in 2006, has contributed a cut to NBA 2K11. I wonder if he thanked his psychiatrist for getting him the gig.
In a nice move, 2K has included "Sirius" by The Alan Parsons Project, which you'll likely recognize once you hear it as the Chicago Bulls' theme -- after all, Michael Jordan is on the cover of the game. Hell, I despised the Bulls when Jordan was wrecking my Knicks in the '90s, but even I couldn't deny the catchiness of their entrance music. Check out the full track list after the jump. You can hear all those songs on October 5th, when NBA 2K11 launches for PS3, 360, Wii, PC, PSP, PS2, and iPhone.
