Representing a first-of-its-kind collaboration, Republic Records, Warner Bros. Pictures, and Xbox have teamed up to present the music video for “Gametime” by Lil Tecca and Aminé. The track will be featured on Space Jam: A New Legacy Official Soundtrack.
In celebration of the upcoming film, Xbox invited fans from around the world to submit their ideas for an original Space Jam: A New Legacy–themed video game. The result is “Space Jam: A New Legacy – The Game,” a basketball beat ‘em up reminiscent of classic arcade games of the 90s.
For the “Gametime” music video, Xbox animated Lil Tecca into the newest member of the Tune Squad – as a character into the arcade-style game, on-screen. During a key sequence, the multiplatinum New York rapper faces the Goon Squad alongside none other than basketball superstar, LeBron James. In addition to “Space Jam: A New Legacy – The Game,” the music video showcases an exclusive Tune Squad Xbox Wireless Controller and a custom Bugs Bunny Xbox Series S Console. The integration marks a full circle moment for Tecca who started rapping and honing his craft while on Xbox Live.
“Ten years ago if you told me I’d be in an Xbox game with the G.O.A.T. himself, I wouldn’t believe it,” commented Tecca. “This is the biggest dream come true, and I’m so thankful Bron, Xbox, and Space Jam: A New Legacy invited me to the party.”
“We’ve got a rap superstar, an iconic film franchise, and the greatest athlete of this generation in one video,” added Marcos Waltenberg, Director of Xbox Global Partnerships. “We’ve never done anything of this magnitude between sports, music, film, and video games. It’s a watershed moment for Xbox, and we’re honored to be a part off it.”
The “Space Jam: A New Legacy – The Game” launched globally on July 1 exclusively into Xbox Game Pass Perks for a limited time. The game will be available free-to-play for all fans through the Microsoft Store on Xbox on Thursday, July 15.
