Kendrick Lamar, Future, Jay Rock and James Blake Join Forces for 'Black Panther' Song "King's Dead"
Published Jan 11, 2018Ryan Coogler's movie Black Panther is on schedule to be a ridiculously successful entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but its soundtrack packs some heroic star power of its own.
Produced by Kendrick Lamar and Top Dawg Entertainment, the official soundtrack is packed with hip-hop heavyweights. Today, we get another taste with the song "King's Dead," which features Kendrick alongside Future, Jay Rock and James Blake, in addition to production by Mike WiLL Made-It and Teddy Walton.
The song, which would be a colossal team-up even without a bunch of comic book superheroes, is available to stream now below. In addition to appearing on the Black Panther soundtrack, it stands as the first single from Jay Rock's upcoming solo album.
"King's Dead" follows the previous soundtrack contribution from Kendrick and SZA called "All the Stars."
The Black Panther arrives on February 9 via Top Dawg Entertainment/Aftermath/Interscope Records, and is available for pre-order via Umusic. The film itself hits theatres on February 16.
