Why is he the executive producer this game?

Wha..? Why do we care that Jay Z is the exec. Producer? Why does that feel like some kind of Jay Z masturbation video?

I much preferred when the music in this game was real Hiphop and underground, breakbeat funk, cut kemist etc. it was intelligent. This worries me a great deal on direction of the game. I also don't like Jay-Z and the distorted image of hiphop culture he presents to world. I may not buy this game this year due to not wanting him to get any of my money or support him, due to the detriment he has caused with hiphop.

Just turn the music off. Your $60 won't all go to Jay-Z. Think of all the hungry kids who won't be fed.

Every time a hip hop artist is said to have involvement with a video game you get so many unwarrented dislikes and protests. Save your money, he doesn't need it. I'm buying this because I always love 2k basketball, and never once cared about the soundtrack.

Personally, I could care less about the Music( as I am not into hip hop), but this video alone just feels like an ego stroke. I mean, what can Jay-Zs involvement possible have to do with the game? This vid has shifted the importance from the game to the friggin' Executive Producer? WTF? Oh yeah, now I remember all the great games Jay-Z has been a part of... oh wait...

About the game


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth but will third party dare to invest in big projects that would ship in 2-3 years? that's the critical part. i'm guessing we'll see a lot of early 3rd party support consisting of low-risk projects. (0 minute ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX They really did throw all of their might behind the 3DS.. which for whatever reason they decided was more important. (1 minute ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX It took WiiU far too long to get stuff like MK8, 3D World, and Smash. Had Nintendo been able to supply more first party software I think it would have sold better. (1 minute ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The launch lineup is sparse, but Zelda will drive adoption throughout March and April.. easily. They just need to keep them coming. (2 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I've wanted Nintendo to make a hybrid console since before they announced a hybrid console. This is far more exciting to me than another "me too" box. (3 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth it's gonna be interesting to see how the sales/reception of the switch is. if we'll see the same vicious circle as with the Wii U (3 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX No.. I just implied that you can't assume that there's an overwhelming demand for more power based on forum anecdotes. (3 minutes ago)
