Lil Yachty 2K23

Lil Yachty is joining a line of rappers before him who received the honor of becoming a playable character by getting his very own Lil Yachty MyTEAM card.

NBA 2k and Yachty unveiled the card details on Thursday, which will be available in the game’s MyTEAM mode.

“A dream I couldn’t live out in real life is finally happening.. I’m hoopin .. I told dem I play like @shai … no kiippp lol,” the 25-year-old wrote on Instagram.

J. Cole, Polo G, Lil Durk, Lil Wayne and Jack Harlow became playable characters in the MyTeam Crossover series earlier this year, all given 89 ratings.

“I think it’s sick. I mean, obviously, I’m still flexing, but… I think it’s great if I could share this greatness with the world because it’s too much greatness,” the Georgia native said when asked what getting his own MyTEAM card would mean to him.

Yachty’s character shares his iconic beaded braids as he sports Travis Scott Air Jordan 1s and wears the number 21.

Fans will be able to earn Lil Yachty’s 89 overall player card for a limited time by completing his Spotlight Challenge.

Lil Durk Joins J. Cole, Lil Wayne & Jack Harlow As Playable Character In NBA 2K23

Lil Durk NBA 2K23

Lil Durk has been tapped as the latest rapper to be added to NBA 2K23 as a playable character.

Smurk’s addition to the video game series’ MyTEAM mode went live on Thursday March 9th, with 2K Sports also releasing a behind-the-scenes look at the process of how the OTF rapper earned his impressive 89 overall rating.

Fans will have to complete Lil Durk’s spotlight challenge to unlock his MyTEAM player card, which is only available for a limited time.

Footage of Durk in NBA 2K23 finds him rocking a No. 3 jersey and a pair of Air Jordan 3 “Black Cement” kicks, with his jumper mimicking his real-life shooting motion.

2K Sports’ Digital Marketing Director “Ronnie 2K” Singh solicited fans’ opinions on who should be the next rapper to make their 2K debut, and they flooded the comments section with the likes of NBA YoungBoy, Playboi Carti, Lil Baby and more.

Lil Durk follows in the footsteps of Jack Harlow, J. Cole and most recently Lil Wayne, all of whom were also given 89 ratings. Cole was also unveiled as the cover star for the DREAMER Edition of NBA 2K23 last year.

As far as his real-life hoop skills go, Lil Durk is confident he could beat J. Cole or Drake on the hardwood.

“[Drake’s] my dog, but he ain’t gon’ play us, though,” he told TMZ last summer after seeing Drake win back-to-back titles in his SBL league. “[LeBron] knows I’m the best ever. Tell your fucking children.”

“I know I can, I just told you that I’m the best ever,” he confidently added. “[That’s] my boy, but I’d dunk that shit on [J. Cole].”
