NBA Baller Beats song list revealed

Posted by: Nathaniel at 7/24/2012 11:44 AM
NBA Baller Beats is that game that combines Kinect, basketball, and rhythm action into "one sweaty package" as I called it back in April.

Later, Jeremy and Chuck proclaimed it "possibly inappropriate for carpets" and "something you should check out", respectively.

Of course, since it's a rhythm action game, there has to be music of some sort, right?  Well, today Majesco revealed the entire NBA Baller Beats song list.  They are:

Access Hollywood by Consequence
Autobiotics by Calling All Cars
Canon by Justice
Championship Fever by Najee
