Grammy award-winner and multi-platinum hip-hop artist J. Cole is the cover of the NBA 2K23 DREAMER Edition. This adds to his already standout accomplishments though not surprising since he’s always been a certified baller.

The NBA 2K23 DREAMER Edition is available exclusively at GameStop in the U.S. and Canada, arriving this fall on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.

In a statement, J. Cole shared that NBA 2K has also been about discovering new music through the game. He added that it continues to be the gold standard when showcasing everything about basketball culture. The Grammy award-winner went on to say that it has been an amazing journey. That’s because J. Cole isn’t just appearing on the cover but is also part of the game’s MyCAREER storyline and soundtrack.

Meanwhile, NBA 2K Vice President of Global Marketing Strategy Alfie Brody revealed that this year’s MyCAREER offers unmatched experience when it comes to NBA 2K23. He added that J. Cole is the first cover who is at the intersection of music and basketball.
