Almost as anticipated as the latest NBA 2K video game is its soundtrack. For NBA 2K16‘s musical accompaniment, 2K recruited the services of DJ Mustard, DJ Khaled and DJ Premier.

“I am excited to be a part of the ongoing series of NBA 2K. As a sports fan, it was already fun before the work began,” said Premier via a press release. “NBA 2K16 will be another big hit, especially alongside DJ Mustard and DJ Khaled bringing our different musical styles to the game.”

Premier, Mustard and Khaled contributed two original tracks a piece to the soundtrack, which will boast over 50 songs. The soundtrack is actually made up of six in game playlists, with each of the aforementioned producers curating one of their own.

There is also an international themed “Around the World” playlist, and a 2K Classics Mixtape that include fan favorites from past 2K games/soundtracks as well as a master playlist of all tracks from this year’s crop of music.

NBA 2K16, which will features the involvement of Spike Lee, is out September 29 on the PS4, PS3 Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Windows PC platforms.
