Kendrick Lamar To Produce ‘Black Panther’ Soundtrack
Rapper, Kendrick Lamar has been announced as producer for the upcoming Black Panther movie soundtrack, and has released the first single, “All the Stars,” teaming up with his labelmate SZA.
A press release from TDE states that Lamar and partner Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith “will collaborate with Ryan Coogler directly in the creation of music specific to the needs of the film.”
This is the first time Kendrick Lamar will write, produce, perform and curate for a major motion picture.
“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,” Lamar said in a statement.
“I’m truly honored to contribute my knowledge of producing sound and writing music alongside Ryan and Marvel’s vision.”
“Top Dawg echoes that sentiment, saying, “Working on such a powerful movie is a great opportunity. We’re always working on new goals at TDE, so teaming up with Disney, Marvel Studios and the Black Panther film makes perfect sense.”
Now that we officially know this is happening, we can not wait to hear the finished work of the Black Panther soundtrack.
