According to a report by ScreenRant, one of the side careers that players will be able to choose from is that of a rapper. Basketball and Hip Hop are inextricably linked, and both rappers and basketball players enjoy stepping into each other's worlds. It is unclear how the Hip Hop side career will play out in the new game, but the level of success that players achieve in it will have an impact on their roles in The City. As the NBA season comes to a close, popular video game franchise NBA 2K22 MThas begun the rollout for its upcoming game. NBA 2K recently revealed their cover athletes for NBA 2K22, each of whom is available in five different variations. Now, the game's developers are announcing even more exciting news.

NBA 2K22 will allow players to pursue their rap dreams as a side career option. According to sources, MyCAREER for NBA 2K22 on next-gen consoles (PS5 and Xbox Series X|S) will not only focus on basketball, but will also include "side ventures" that can serve as a secondary career for players.2K has not yet provided specifics on these ventures, but reports suggest that players will be able to enter the fashion or music industries, allowing them to become fashion and rap moguls while also being the best player in the league.

In addition, NBA 2K22 for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S will combine MyCAREER and The City to create a space with "new and familiar faces as well as engaging storylines."Unfortunately, The City will not be available for players on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or PC; instead, they will be transported to the 2K Cruise, which is essentially The Neighborhood on board a luxury cruise ship.

On Friday (July 23), NBA 2K revealed that the career mode in the upcoming game, NBA MT, will receive a slew of new features. The emphasis is on the expansive role-playing mechanics, which include the opportunity for players to pursue a side career in addition to their NBA ambitions.

Fans of NBA 2K have expressed their dissatisfaction with the lack of change in the game over the last few years, and the company has attempted to address their concerns. Hopefully, the new side careers will add some variety to the annual basketball video game.

In February, NBA 2K and United Masters launched the second season of their music competition, 2K Beats: The Search, in which artists from all over the world submitted their music for a chance to be featured on the next-generation soundtrack for NBA 2K21.
