Jay-Z to produce basketball video game

Jay-Z has signed on to produce a new basketball video game.

The superstar and co-owner of the Brooklyn Nets basketball team will show off his love for the sport by helping entertainment bosses create NBA 2K13 (National Basketball Association 2013), which is set to hit shelves on 2 October (12).

The news perhaps explains the title of the product's special-edition package, NBA 2K13 Dynasty Edition, which may be a nod to the Empire State of Mind hitmaker's 2000 studio album The Dynasty: Roc La Familia.
