      Earlier this year video game company 2K Sports announced that they would challenge EA Sports’ Madden franchise with their own “All-Pro Football 2K8.” The company enlisted Decon Records and DJ Z-Trip to put together a collection of original tracks, remixes and mash-ups featuring dead prez, Rakim, Chali 2na, Aceyalone, Slug and others.

      “One thing I really appreciate about 2K Sports is they take chances hen it comes to their music selection and I’m all about that,” Z-Trip said. “Working on the ‘All-Pro Football 2K8’ soundtrack gave me the opportunity to really mix things up. The music fits perfectly in the game, making you want to nod your head and tackle someone at the same time.”

      The game will hits stores in August as well as the soundtrack which will ship as a separate CD. Here’s the tracklisting of the soundtrack:
