NBA 2K11 soundtrack features Snoop Dogg, Ron Artest

7:30 PM on 07.29.2010 // Samit Sarkar

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.

MGO's pretty fun! I suck at it though. I mostly hang back and just mark enemies and get the occasional sniper kill. It's pretty fun to be semi-useful with a very hands off role like that. Love my avatar character guy too.

Rock Band 4 is really fun...takes me back to my teenage days of high school. Also reminds me of all the hours I wasted on a plastic guitar instead of getting better on a real one xD

N-Not that P1 isn't perfect the way she is! Isn't that right sweetie? Yes it... Oh, now don't you go and listen to those P2 fans! They just go around spreading rumors and pretending Hitler was just a handsome gentleman in sunglasses, that's what THEY do!

Persona Q has made me realize I really want a Persona 1 remake on 3DS in a similar style. A lot. A loooooooot. You listening, Atlus?
Super Mario Maker, the announcement of Sonic Lost World for Steam, and remembering all of the mods that got made for the PC version of Sonic Generations makes me wish SEGA/Sonic Team would make their own dedicated Sonic level creation game.

Hey, is your fridge running? You better catch it. I mean, it has all your food, and without food, you die. Like, forever. You don't wanna die right? If you die, how will you watch The Good wife with your favourite bowl of Ben and Jerry's ice cream? Go.

The newest PS4 update finally got rid of that bug where I'd get the "you can customize your power options" message every time I turned on my console!

Should I just pass on MGSV? I haven't really liked any of the games after Snake Eater, and it's being used as a money sink at the moment.
