J. Cole is the first rapper to receive his own cover on NBA 2K!
2K Sports announced that Cole is the official cover athlete of the NBA 2K23 DREAMER Edition, which will be available on PlayStation 5 and Xbox X/S on September 9.
“This shit crazy,” Cole wrote on Twitter while sharing the historic cover, which shows him perched on a floating basketball court in the skies surrounded by clouds. “NBA2K23 cover. [exploding head emojis] DREAMER @NBA2K.”
Cole will play a role in the MyCAREER story mode and Bas and Elite will also be a part of the storyline.
“NBA 2K has long been a place to discover new musical talent through their game and continues to be a gold standard for showcasing all things basketball culture,” Cole said in a statement. “It’s been an amazing journey to not only appear on a cover of this year’s game, but to be part of the MyCAREER storyline, soundtrack and bring the DREAMER brand into NBA 2K. There’s also more to come, so watch out for all things Dreamville and DREAMER brand drops during Seasons and for Bas and Elite in this year’s MyCAREER story.”
