#NBA2K18 has everyone shook! Watch the debut #2K18 trailer featuring “Shook Ones” by Mobb Deep. pic.twitter.com/WqZa8u7tT9— NBA 2K 2K18 (@NBA2K) August 16, 2017
Shouts to 2K for paying homage to Prodigy of Mobb Deep by featuring “Shook Ones,” but that’s one of the most infamous verses of all-time they’re including and it’s completely butchered by censorship. Sure, they had to do it for the ESRB rating, but it’s edited so heavily it’s almost distracting.
