24-Song Soundtrack To NBA 2K13 Released, Picked By Jay-ZJay brought a number of diverse artists to the game soundtrack, ranging from indie rock (Phoenix, Dirty Projectors) to electro (Daft Punk, Justice) to hip-hop, with classics such as Nas' "The World is Yours" and Eric B. and Rakim's "I Ain't No Joke" sharing time with a number of hits from Hov himself. The Throne collaborator Kanye West makes several appearances, with "Amazing," "We Major" and recent track "Mercy" -- and Coldplay adds to the arena-rock contingent with "Viva La Vida." It's the latest curatorial project for the MC, who is also directing the Philadelphia Made in America festival this September
