Hip Hop Band A Tribe Called Quest Reunites to Promote 'NBA 2K7' (ALL)

NBA 2K7 elevates the standard for all sports games, offering fans the most comprehensive and exciting basketball experience to date. NBA 2K7 presents cutting-edge visual realism, while offering the most intense and exhilarating gameplay controls in any basketball game, thanks in part to new post play mechanics inspired by Shaquille O'Neal.

Comprised of Phife Dawg, Q-Tip, and Ali Shaheed Muhammad, A Tribe Called Quest is known as one of the most intelligent and artistic rap groups of the ‘90s with four solid albums and a string of hip-hop classics prior to their 1998 break-up. This heavily anticipated reunion marks one of the top hip-hop happenings of the year.

“I’m excited for me and my group to be a part of the 2K Sports Bounce Tour,” said Phife from A Tribe Called Quest. “It’s a win-win situation for Tribe because we get to be a part of such a dope game, and we get to reach out and touch our fans in these 15 cities. I couldn't ask for a better opportunity. Also, I’m excited because everyone knows I am a sports nut, so being down with the game and also being a character in the game is crazy to me.”

The 2nd Annual 2K Bounce Tour is the latest addition to 2K Sports’ series of annual live events that bridge hip-hop, sports and video game culture by featuring renowned music artists, sports gaming kiosks, projection vignettes and celebrity and professional athlete appearances. The tour will take place in more than a dozen top markets throughout the month of September, with details posted at

“After The Roots headlined last year’s Bounce Tour, we knew we had to raise the bar even further,” said Tim Rosa, director of brand and lifestyle marketing for 2K Sports. “We jumped on the opportunity to reunite the legendary A Tribe Called Quest, whose positive vibe and innovative style meshed perfectly with the 2K Sports brand.”

In addition to touring to support 2K Sports’ upcoming basketball game, A Tribe Called Quest will have an exclusive new Dan the Automator remix of the classic “Lyrics to Go” on the ‘Dan the Automator Presents 2K7’ soundtrack. Phife Dawg also appears as a playable character in the game’s Street mode alongside a host of other rap stars. By putting A Tribe Called Quest on the road, on the soundtrack and in the game, 2K Sports continues to have the deepest music integration campaign on the market.
