NBA 2K13 Jay-Z

It’s becoming less and less appropriate to introduce Jay-Z as “rapper Jay-Z,” as the artist continues to add more and more occupations to his impressive resume.  The latest on the list is “video game executive producer,” as the credits for the new video game NBA 2K13 prove.

And Jay-Z isn’t being shy about his involvement in producing the game. As you can see in the above photo and the trailer below, Jigga’s name is prominently displayed in the promotional materials, including just below the game’s title in a graphic that includes images of Blake Griffin, Kevin Durant and Derrick Rose.

Of course, exactly what Jay-Z did as “executive producer” is anyone’s guess, but maybe his famous name will sell a few more copies of the game. NBA 2K13 is set to hit shelves on October 2nd.

Here is a look at the trailer for the game.
