Most songs on the playlist have "Explicit" mark next to them. So prepare for bunch of silence in almost every song.

Funny enough most songs I liked on the playlist are not hip-hop or rap. But that's more about the genre being like that lately than soundtrack picks...

Saw that Fast Lane made it back this year... What was the first one, 2K12?

I bet the same people that complain about how soundtracks have too many rap songs will now complain about pop songs like Ariana Grande, Katy Perry, Selena Gómez, and Sia

seems like they make the soundtrack appeal to mainstream year by year. nothing to complain about for me. I realized that hearing these at gameplay has a modern and realistic effect on the game. like you hear Cardi B on a timeout, it seems like real, as "Finesse" could be heard in a real game too. a mainstream soundtrack increases the chance. they even included Billie Eilish.

wow, from early 2000's where we had only 5-10 original tracks, to today where we have worldwide hits in video games.

They'll never please everyone with the soundtrack. It's even harder given the different age demographics as well. It's only natural that they cater to the younger crowd in that regard, since they're the ones who are - by and large - listening to new artists and music. They're right there in the core demographic of the games as well.

It reminds me of a lot of complaints I've seen levied at Triple J, one of the most popular radio stations here in Australia. A lot of people around my age who grew up listening to it have complained in recent years about the artists they're playing these days, but now that we're in our early to mid 30s, we're not the key demographic anymore; our favourite artists aren't up-and-comers on the cusp of pop music. The station's identity resonated with us when we were in the right age bracket, but now we've aged out of it. So it goes with video game soundtracks. That's not to say we can't enjoy them, but feeling that disconnect is often just the way it goes as you get older.

Anyway, I'll have to give the NBA 2K20 soundtrack a listen sometime this week. There's usually at least a few songs I end up discovering and liking every year, though NBA 2K19 was one of the exceptions. Nothing really stuck with me last year, unfortunately.

Sometimes I feel like that old guy too that hates on new music simply because it's new. I gotta say NBA Live 19 & 18 have been really the only source of new music I've listened to in the last 2 years and some of it I really enjoyed but I can appreciate them finding lesser known gems

I actually like a good portion of this soundtrack. Here are my positives and negatives:

+

Post Malone
Billie Eilish (She has my second favourite album on the year, just behind IGOR.)
Drake (Sandra's Rose is one of the better songs from Scorpion.)
Juice WRLD
Nipsey Hussle
Ariana Grande
21 Savage
KRS One
Young Thug

-

XXXTentacion
Motley Crue (I know what they're going for. They're appealing to an older audience that doesn't like hip hop, but I'm not a fan.)
No Cardi B

Hope they add Tyler later in the year. That would sound good. IGOR is also my favorite album of the year too with Ventura (by Anderson .Paak)

No Mac Miller?? 2k could’ve completed the full sweep of pandering to rappers who died last year. X and Nipsey are both great but it feels hollow to just now put them on now that they’ve passed when both artists have had hits prior to this year.
