With music coming from some of the most celebrated names in Grime, including Skepta, Ghetts, D Double E, Frisco, and Kamakaze, the list is expected to grow with the debut of NBA 2k22‘s ‘First Fridays‘ feature, which will add new music on the first Friday of each ‘Season’ in the game.
Speaking on the decision to include the UK stars on the line-up, 2k studios Global Marketing VP Alfie Brody said “NBA 2Khas become a global platform for music discovery and that continues with NBA 2K22. This year, we are creating a dynamic soundtrack, complete with early access to unreleased tracks, new artists, and opportunities for fans to become part of the experience and solidify their place in video game history.“
