The NBA 2k8 soundtrack is killer like KB24. God bless Stones Throw for making it possible to play basketball to the tune of Madlib and Dilla beats and rare soul 45s. And because the soundtrack's so good, they're touring just because of it:

2K8: B-Ball Zombie War includes a diverse line-up of notable artists and includes a number of tracks that have been licensed by 2K Sports for its 2K8 video games. This marks the first Stones Throw collaboration with a video game publisher.

The release of the 2K8: B-Ball Zombie War album will be supported by two nationwide tours: The 2K Sports Bounce Tour featuring Common, Q-Tip and Percee P in September, and The 2K Sports B-Ball Zombie Tour with Stones Throw artists Madlib, Peanut Butter Wolf and J Rocc and special guests beginning in November.
