According to ESPN.com, Williams is the second music artist to curate songs for "NBA 2K". The first was rapper Jay Z who also served as the game's executive producer in 2012. For the 2014 version, LeBron James selected soundtracks for the game.
Pharrell said about the curation, "It was fun to include songs that I have always loved, like Strafe's 'Set It Off' or Tribe Called Quest's 'Scenario'. The eclectic mix makes for a really cool vibe."
Alfie Brody, vice president of marketing for "NBA 2K15", said about Williams, "Pharrell's creative energy and background with the NBA - his performance at the All-Star Game for example - was part of our decision in partnering with him to shape a new entertainment experience in this year's title."
