The future of hip-hop takes the field today, as the Madden NFL 23 Soundtrack delivers a starting lineup of MVP artists, all-star collaborations, gifted rookies, and gritty exclusives that will hit everything all season long.
For the first time in franchise history the soundtrack has a prize quarterback, with 3-time GRAMMY® winning writer/producer/rapper Hit-Boy creating 33 exclusive beats for the game’s cinematics. In addition, Hit-Boy and two-time GRAMMY®nominee Cordae collaborated on the bespoke track ‘CHECKMATE’, which will debut in Madden NFL 23 around NFL Kickoff. A tease of the exclusive track will be featured in a new Madden NFL 23 TV spot coming August 19 when the game launches worldwide.
But that’s only the beginning: The game’s 39 defining bangers also feature superstar collabs like Pusha T ft. Lil Uzi Vert & Don Toliver, Snoop Dogg ft. Nas and Ty Dolla $ign ft. Wiz Khalifa; killer tracks by Joey Bada$$, Nas, and Kendrick Lamar; and unstoppable newcomers like innovative L.A. rapper/producer Malachiii, Japanese DJ and BAPE creator Nigo (with Tyler The Creator), and 2022 XXL Freshman Class female MC Doechii.
More than a third of the soundtrack will debut new or exclusive music from artists, including Big K.R.I.T., King Green, Gizzle ft. BRE-Z, Symba, Erica Banks, Lord Afrixana, Marqus Clae, and Simon Said. & Jazzfeezy, with hard-hitting tracks by Killer Mike and Bas available only in game. Post-launch – and pre-kickoff – will bring the full ‘CHECKMATE’ as well as the exclusive ‘NO LIMIT’ by Money Man, Babyface Ray & Key Glock ft. BLEU from the kingpins at Empire.
