Both Black Panther and its soundtrack have been shaping up to be blockbusters. The movie’s not out for another week, but as tonight the album has arrived in full.
Curated by Kendrick Lamar and his label head Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith, it features a wealth new Kendrick music — including the previously released “All The Stars,” “King’s Dead,” and “Pray For Me” — and appearances from SZA, ScHoolboy Q, 2 Chainz, Future, the Weeknd, Vince Staples, James Blake, Khalid, Swae Lee, Ab-Soul, Anderson .Paak, Jay Rock, Travis Scott, Mozzy, Zacari, and more.
It is, in other words, one the year’s second rap Event Album following Migos’ mammoth Culture II (and likely a hell a lot more satisfying). Dig into it below.
