Can someone tell me about uploading music to Xbox 360?

I have TTT2 and want to change up some of the music. Can you upload individual MP3's or does it have to be from a disc only?

Put your mp3s on a USB stick and listen that way.
Otherwise, no way to get non CD music onto the harddrive.

If you don't mind keeping a flash drive in one of your USB ports every time you want to listen to music, and a minor "delay/lag" in pulling up your Dashboard (this only tends to happen if you have a LOT of MP3s on your flash drive), then you don't even have to store your music to your Xbox's hard drive. That's what I did for a long while (before getting tired of the Dashboard lag, and started using CD-RWs to rip the music to my hard drive).

You can also just "stream" the music from your PC through Media Center... but I don't know if you can do that, while playing a game (I never tried, because I think it's just silly to have my PC running while I'm already playing games on the 360).

Download an old version of TVersity or similar streaming program.
Create a playlist for every individual song (not as tedious as it sounds)
Stream the directory with the songs and playlists with the streaming program.

They will now show up in the game as individual tracks to apply to whatever you want.

If you just want to stream music to the 360 do listen to on the dashboard and not apply it to anything in games, you don't have to do the playlist thing. Just stream the directory of MP3's.

Why would you do this?

Because in games if you can apply certain songs to specific things (For instance, in NHL it plays a specific goal song for a team), the game only reads playlists, not the actual mp3.

For the NHL example, you just create a playlist with that once song, name the playlist "Goal - Calgary" and apply the playlist in the game to that situation.

I assume Tekken is the same.
