After progressing through the "It's a Cole World" quest in NBA 2K23, athletes will unlock Marvin's trivia challenge that involves players answering questions regarding the music industry of the real world. Such questions include topics like "Who recorded the original and far superior version of Tainted Love" and "Which group of rock royalty insists that they will rock you?" While NBA 2K23 will not penalize anyone for incorrectly answering Marvin's trivia, those who manage to get the answers right will receive free VC and XP for their efforts.

To get started on this music trivia challenge, NBA 2K23 fans must head to Erick's Vinyl, a shop located south of the Arena One City Plaza, near the tattoo shop. Those who completed the "Not Your Father's Hot Dogs" quest to unlock the Hot Dog hat will have visited this establishment at least once. After arrival, head through the entrance and speak with Marvin, who can be found behind the cashier counter.

While it is possible to do a lightning-fast Google search when the question appears, the timer for the answer selection can make it difficult for players to figure out the right response in time. Fortunately, Gamepur has generously provided the NBA 2K23 community with the correct answers to Marvin's music trivia questions.
