'AND 1 Streetball' (PS2/Xbox) Soundtrack Revealed

When you ball, you know you're not going to do some fancy 360 with 30 flips in the air and dunk from half-court. When you talk about playing streetball, you keep it real. You bring crowds to their feet by dropping shiny no-look dimes to your teammates. You go strong to the rack and bang on fools no matter how many try to stop you. And when you've got it all, you paint pictures on backboards by pinning your opponent's shots. But it's not until you showcase your own original moves and signature style on the world's toughest playgrounds that you get your name mentioned alongside Skip-To-My-Lou, AO, Hot Sauce, The Professor, and other streetball legends. We may speak the same language, but don't ever say it's the same game. AND 1 Streetball...true to the game.

"What I do and what the streetballers do are the same thing," says rap artist Freeway, who grew up on the same gritty Philadelphia streets as AND1 streetball legend, Aaron "AO" Owens. "We both need to be creative and original to get recognized."

Hip hop and Streetball go hand in hand. Both performances are based on originality and dynamic showmanship. To compliment AND 1 Streetball's showcase of the most talented streetballers from every region, the game's soundtrack will also showcase the most talented hip-hop artists from every region. The AND 1 Streetball Videogame Soundtrack features a loaded and customizable library of exclusive tracks from various hip-hop genres, including Dirty South Crunk, West Coast Hyphy, and East Coast. Each court will have its own sound and flavor ­ players can choose which courtts they want to play and which tracks they want to hear.

Zvi Edelman, the exclusive soundtrack's producer, traveled the U.S. recording brand-spanking-new tracks to accompany the regional courts in the game.
