A trailer leaked on Monday, but the news of Jay-Z executive producing 2K13 was in fact not officially announced until Tuesday, July 31, so he was correct in stating "announced today".

Further, it's been stated Jay-Z will in fact contribute more to 2K13 than just the soundtrack. As news continues to leak out, it seems any impact he has will be largely focused on off-the-court dimensions of the game. From a CNN article today:

Quote:
The megastar, whose real name is Shawn Carter, has been focusing his efforts on the game's presentation and entertainment elements away from the ball -- the music, crowd reactions and interactive in-game menus. He is part owner of the Brooklyn Nets, so his involvement is one that is personally appealing, he said.
