This past weekend, fans were able to check out the official soundtrack for the forthcoming movie Space Jam: A New Legacy, the sequel to the iconic Space Jam that now sees Lebron James taking over for Michael Jordan in the starring role. The hip hop and R&B-heavy soundtrack sees 16 tracks and a slew of contributions from Kirk Franklin, Lil Baby, Lil Wayne, Chance The Rapper, John Legend, Lil Uzi Vert, SAINt JHN, and more.
This week reveals a new visual from the compilation for “Gametime,” a collaboration between Lil Tecca and Aminé and sees them making various basketball references over production from Blaise Railey and Tasha Catour:
“So official, they blowin’ the whistle, I handle the rock and I’m dishin’ it off, I feel like I’m Pete with the pistol, I know when you lookin’ at me and the squad, you don’t be wantin’ no issues, I’m hittin’ the shot, three, two, one, so here, go, a box full of tissues, you know I don’t play ‘bout money, they throw up the rock, I’m comin’ for rings, I know you know how I’m comin’, I’m out in L.A. like King 23, throwin’ up oops, it’s nothin’...”
The accompanying clip for “Gametime” comes courtesy of John Tashiro and Tim Carpenter, and begins with Lil Tecca calling Aminé for an Xbox video game session — unfortunately, the Microsoft plug doesn’t lead to an actual appearance from Aminé outside of his voice on the other line. At some point, Tecca gets zapped into what he’s playing — Space Jam: A New Legacy - The Game, a very real game that now sees the New York talent joining a virtual Lebron James in a futuristic battle against giant robots. Naturally, some actual footage from the aforementioned film are interspersed throughout.
