NBA Live is going all-in on this year’s game. EA Sports has made tweaks and improvements over past editions, brought Russell Westbrook on board as its cover athlete, and added a Pro-Am feature. But one area they’ve continued to put a lot of time and energy into is the soundtrack.
Curated by MICK (formerly DJ Mick Boogie), the soundtrack (which has a Spotify Profile, as well) features a number of artists from Ty Dolla $ign and Vince Staples to Kendrick Lamar and King Los, and also has one of Uproxx Music’s picks for potential song of the summer in “I Know There’s Gonna Be Good Times” by Jamie xx ft. Young Thug and Popcaan. The music isn’t so much the mix you typically see from MICK, with the tracks finding their way into the game in various situations, but MICK has included some of his own music in there as well.
The full track list is below:
Casey Veggies feat. Ty Dolla $ign, “Wonderful”
