“I’m excited to have EVGLE included on the NBA 2K23 soundtrack simply because it’s a childhood dream,” said EVGLE record label founder Blxst. “I can speak for most of us in saying that we grew up playing this game. So, to be a part of this is mind-blowing and it’s crazy how music bridges the gap. These songs were hand-picked by me and the EVGLE team because this is what we like to listen to get inspired. I like to look at myself as a tastemaker and each artist on this playlist is a different ingredient to the soundtrack of my lifestyle right now.”
