NBA Live 18 Soundtrack features Kendrick Lamar, 2Chainz, Pharrell

NBA Live 18 is set for a September release, and the demo is live on Xbox Live and PSN. However, before the full game goes live, EA Sports has unveiled the soundtrack for their return to the Basketball simulation world, featuring songs from 2Chainz’ newest album Pretty Girls Love Trap Music, Kendrick Lamar and more!

Kendrick Lamar rips through his single “DNA” like Kyrie carving up defenders. NBA LIVE 18’ is all about player control, and no rapper in the game has mastery over his delivery like Kendrick. Every player is unique in NBA LIVE 18, and every outcome is based on the decisions you make in real-time.

The duo of THEY gives you the feeling of Giannis Antetokounmpo in the open court with a sing-along hook and sharp drums on “U Rite”. There are plenty of up-tempo tracks that will keep you moving like Lonzo Ball advancing the ball full court. Take for instance, MMG front man Rick Ross’ “Summer Seventeen”. Ross’ track is co-piloted by Yo Gotti and is a foundation for setting up a glorious run for your season. If this track doesn’t get you amped, you don’t have a pulse.
