And 1 Streetball has mad hip-hops

Ubisoft's razzle-dazzle basketball game features beats from Kool G Rap, San Quinn; soundtrack to be included with purchase of game.

Though street-style basketball isn't weighed down with too many concrete rules, there is one unwritten rule that must be followed by blacktop ballers--no dunking to country-western music. Ubisoft is holding true to the code of the playground with the announcement of the And 1 Streetball soundtrack, which spans several regional variants of hip-hop.

The bicoastal soundtrack has something for all hip-hop fans, regardless of which side of the country you represent. Artists from the East Coast, West Coast, the Dirty South, and more are included, including New York's Kool G Rap and Oaktown's Turf Talk.

"What I do and what the streetballers do are the same thing," said Freeway, one of the contributors to the soundtrack. "We both need to be creative and original to get recognized."

Those who purchase the game will also get the game's soundtrack, which comes on a DVD with bonus footage compiled from the And 1 Mixtapes. Ubisoft has also put the soundtrack into one convenient, downloadable mix by DJ Green Lantern. Gamers can download the free mix now from Real.com.

And 1 Streetball is rated E10+ for Everyone 10 and Older and will retail for $39.99 on the Xbox and PlayStation 2 when it is released on June 6. A full list of tracks on the soundtrack is below.

BG--We
Bun B & the Middle Fingaz--Hard in the Paint

it makes perfect sense... mad hops / hip hop... what would YOU title the article? also, if you've ever seen the mix tapes, you would know what to expect from the musical selection. why would you care about the game if you don't think it's going to be any good? and not all good rappers are dead. you just need to know where to look. the "hip-hop" community is still alive. most people connect gangster rap with the entire rap concept, which isn't flourishing like it once was. and finally, if you don't like hip-hop, you aren't going to listen to it. and if you don't listen to it, you won't understand the type of music it is. just last week i got suprised when i herd a country song that actually impressed me.

Rap is stupid and pointless but I wouldn't expect any real music in a street basketball game.

Thats cool I hope the game will get delayed that way they can add more stuff to it and max it out to the game it could be.

Hmmm. Kool G Rap, Freeway, Devin, Bun B... not bad.. Still not really interested in this game though. Music doesn't sell the game to me and if I want to I'll just head to the court and play real Bball with real people. I never understood sport games.... Maybe because I'm not lazy. If I want to listen to Hip-Hop I think my continuously expanding collection is good enough. Most (not all) of today's commercial hip-hop (same goes for rock) totally suck anyway.
