The all-new (and I think last) trailer for NBA 2K15 has dropped this morning and it’s a doozy of a look at all of today’s stars in action on the beautiful next-gen systems. Some highlights: a quick look at LeBron & Kyrie, Jabari Parker on the Bucks, Chandler Parsons on the Mavs, Rubio throwing oops to Zach LaVine and Andrew Wiggins, a perfectly done ‘Melo pull up 3 and ensuing celebration, Iman Shumpert’s “Worst Behaviour” 3 celebration, and of course cover boy and MVP Kevin Durant at the beginning and end. Watch out for all of those and more above (all set to ATCQ “Scenario”).
BONUS: The MyCareer has an all-new storyline in which you’re undrafted and have to grind to get on a team in January and play well enough going into free agency right off the bat. Love the constant innovation and small details 2K is adding (and this is just a small preview).
Also worth watching: James Harden on last night’s Late Night with Seth Meyers as Seth puts the all-new 2K Face Scan to the test and becomes teammates with James on the Rockets. So funny (and awesome).
Remix time! Shmurda coulda got seemingly anyone as the final list indicates. Fabolous, Jadakiss, Chris Brown, Busta Rhymes, Yo Gotti & his running buddy Rowdy Rebel all do their thing below for the summer single that keeps growing into fall.
Sometimes lyric videos aren’t worth the watch and that’s almost solely because the song doesn’t need the accompanying visual to display the lyrics. Basically, it doesn’t add much. Well, when you have two of the fastest spitters in the game, of all-time, together on the same track then I think a lyric video is very welcome. Here’s the new one to Busta & Em’s new single “Calm Down”.
We were waiting for July 1st but this week’s big rap track is a full day early as Busta Rhymes & Eminem‘s “Calm Down” can be heard below, and to my pleasant surprise, producer Scoop DeVille samples the House of Pain party classic “Jump Around”.
As if there was anything else that would have made you press play…
Both Busta & Em rap extra long verses over a 5 minute track, seemingly without breathing. That I expected, though I just wish they traded verses since they’re bar for bar 2 of the quickest flows in the game. Structure knock aside, Busta starts off the song strong and his verse from beginning to end is real solid. Eminem’s verse follows suit and has a Slim Shady style delivery, complete with various celebrity references too. None of ’em really fall flat and to top it off, it’s one of the best conclusions to an Eminem verse in a minute too. Look for “Calm Down” on Busta’s upcoming album, E.L.E. 2.
UPDATE: Here is a pretty cool trailer for “Calm Down”. Watch before the song!
But on the topic at hand, this one sounds like a great combo on paper. Scoop DeVille produces and talks below about how it’s just Busta and Em spazzing on the track. Can you imagine the break neck flows and clear delivery from two of the best to execute that combo? I’m stoked.
