The 14-track offering is executive produced by K.Dot and TDE boss Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith, and serves as the soundtrack for the predominantly black-cast Marvel Black Panther film, which hits theaters on February 16.
The soundtrack lists Kendrick and several fellow TDE members (SZA, ScHoolboy Q, Ab-Soul, Jay Rock) in the credits, along with 2 Chainz, Khalid, Jorja Smith, Swae Lee, Future, The Weeknd, SOB x RBE, Mozzy and many more.
First impressions of the film have been overwhelmingly positive, with DX’s Editor-in-Chief Trent Clark calling it “an amazing, culturally relevant addition to the MCU” after seeing the Hollywood premiere earlier this week.
