King Kendrick Lamar’s producing the score for the upcoming Marvel film, Black Panther.
Kendrick, along with TDE’s Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith, are working closely with the production crew to deliver what will surely be a crazy soundtrack.
“Marvel Studios’ Black Panther is amazing, from its cast to its director,” Kendrick said in a press release, via The Verge. “The magnitude of this film showcases a great marriage of art and culture. I’m truly honored to contribute my knowledge of producing sound and writing music alongside [director Ryan Coogler] and Marvel’s vision.”
Today, the first single from Black Panther: The Album arrived. The track features TDE labelmates SZA and Kendrick Lamar working with the type of flawless chemistry that only Top Dawg artists are capable of. Hopefully, this is only one of many Top Dawg Entertainment collaborations on the soundtrack. I’d love to see a Black Hippy track on the album.
In 2003, Eminem became the first-ever MC to take home an Oscar for Best Original Song. Since then, fewer than 10 rap artists have taken their victory lap on the Academy Awards stage. We all know that TDE’s no stranger to awards and recognition so maybe this soundtrack will join the ranks.
Listen to the new single “All The Stars” below and check out Black Panther when it hits theaters on February 16th.
