Jay-Z is a “visionary” and has had “direct impact” on NBA 2K13, says 2K

IncGamers: In case you missed it, Jay-Z (yes, the Jay-Z, the guy hanging off Beyonce’s arm) is executive producer on 2K Sports’ upcoming NBA 2K13.

We recently spoke with 2K Sports’ Chris Snyder about the rapper/entrepreneur/fashionist a’s involvement and how he will shape the game. Snyder was cagey about giving away too much info, keen to keep certain bits of info underwraps until September when a bunch of new info is promised, but he wasn’t short on praise for man that once featured in the hysterically immature feud between himself and fellow rapper Nas. (NBA 2K13, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Hip Hop is Dead. All todays music is Pop. I miss the 90's & 80's tribe called quest,biggie,wutang,bone thugs,rakim,Nas ,Tupac etc......

MTV & BET don't even show music anymore.

Must've never heard of Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, Jay Rock, ScHoolboy Q, Big K.R.I.T., J. Cole, Ace Kayo, SlaughterHouse, Lupe Fiasco.

Nas just dropped another LEGENDARY album.

You must live in a rock to say that Hip-Hop is dead altogether only in the Mainstream.

It's on a Respirator

I hope he doesn't kill NBA 2K franchise. This is something we still have to wait and see. I'm not liking what i'm seeing so far on the presentation...doesn't feel like a "real" game. Please don't kill another franchise...NBA Live is dead by miles from what we've seen as well.

The only rap i can handle is ratm as it has solid riffs and grooves not one guy pressing the insta band button.

I like Sean Carter. I like the 2k series. I'm going to reserve judgement until I play the game and see what his impact on the series will be. I can't imagine the gameplay being affected, it's basketball after all. I don't see how this is anything other than a marketing ploy but maybe I'll be surprised and his input will make some tangible difference in the 2k experience. The series has yet to disappoint, hope they don't start this year.

Calling BS now.

He's a name. that is it. That name will sell this game to a hiphop focused crowd.

It's insulting to everybody invovled in making games that he is being credited with anything really.

Imagine right before GTA V is announced , Katy Perry associates her name to it and then people are calling her a visionary because some of her music is in it and her likeness it lent to it.

It's beyond baffling that people buy into this stuff.
