Kendrick Lamar Produced the Theme Song for the ‘Black Panther’ Soundtrack

Kendrick Lamar‘s newest release with
SZA is not only a stellar song in itself, but
it sets the scene for Marvel‘s forthcoming
film Black Panther!



The “Humble” rapper has been credited with co-producing the
entire soundtrack, Panther: The
Album, 
aside Top Dawg Entertainment CEO Anthony
“Top Dawg” Tiffith. He was hand selected by director Ryan
Coogler to head up the project, who talked up Lamar in a recent
press release.

“I am honored to be working with such an incredible artist
whose work has been so inspirational, and whose artistic themes
align with those we explore in the film. I can’t wait for the
world to hear what Kendrick and TDE have in store.”

Lamar followed up with his own statement…

“Marvel Studios’ ‘Black Panther’ is amazing, from its cast
to its director. 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 Ryan
and Marvel’s vision.”

The leading single, “All The Stars” truly has a way about it,
as striking lyrics and instinctive flow glide over a sparkling
beat. SZA’s vocal delivery compliments what Lamar lays
down, making for more than just a hip hop song — but a true
Black Panther anthem.

If this song is any indication, the entire Panther:
The Album 
is going to be amazing. The film hits
theaters February 16, 2018 so we’ll see how it all plays
out then!
