As everyone knows one of the best experiences of playing any NBA 2K game is the music. It can affect your mood, inspire those 3-point shots and it adds to the overall excitement of being a member of the team. In exciting news, yesterday the soundtrack for NBA 2K14 was released and there was a shocker.
