When the trailer for Marvel’s Black Panther dropped last year, it was paired perfectly with Kendrick Lamar. Lamar’s last album two albums To Pimp A Butterfly and DAMN. are a couple of my favorite Hip Hop albums in the last decade.
So when it was announced that Lamar would be in charge of The Black Panther soundtrack, to me it was a match made in Wakanda.
Yesterday Lamar tweeted out the full track listing for the album and DAMN.
Along with big rap names like 2 Chainz, Future, Vince Staples and Anderson.Paak, Sacramento spitter Mozzy and Vallejo, Calif. crew SOB x RBE are in the mix, no doubt to provide a dose of West Side authenticity for the Compton rapper’s peace of mind. K. Dot himself appears on five of the 14 tracks.
His collaboration with SZA on All The Stars is already my favorite song of the year so I can’t wait to hear the rest of the album. Check out the complete listing below.
