Travis Scott to Serve as Executive Producer of 'NBA 2K19' Soundtrack
If the Rockets are playing a crucial home game in Houston, there's a good chance you could see Travis Scott sitting courtside at the Toyota Center, cheering on James Harden and the rest of his hometown squad. Now, La Flame has a chance to get involved with the premier basketball series he loves, as 2K Sports announced Wednesday (Aug. 15) that Scott will join the family to executive produce the NBA 2K19 soundtrack.
The announcement arrives with a coinciding video conversation between the Astroworld artist and the new king of Los Angeles and NBA 2K19 cover star LeBron James. "It's an honor," Scott tells James in the video. "It's dope. I always like a chance to be able to curate music. I play 2K all the time, play with my homies mostly. I picked up 2K a year or two ago, but it became a super addiction."
Travis is actually slated to appear in the video game in an unspecified capacity too. "It means a lot. It reaches a lot of people in different communities. Just to be in the game and inspire a lot of people is dope," he told LeBron. Scott's curated soundtrack is expected to include a "variety of current hip-hop and pop artists providing high energy and a fresh listening experience for all virtual ballers," according to 2K Sports.
Check out the video of LeBron James interviewing Travis Scott courtesy of 2K Sports and some of the songs making the soundtrack below. NBA 2K19 arrives on Sept. 11.
