Just days after releasing “All The Stars” with SZA, Kendrick Lamar teams up with Jay Rock and Future for another track off of the Black Panthers Soundtrack. “King’s Dead” is a high-energy, hard-hitting track featuring a verse from all three artists. “Miss me with that bullsh-t / You ain’t really wild, you a tourist / I be blackin’ out with the purist / I made a hundred thou’ then I freaked it ,” K Dot spits on the chorus. “I made 500 thousand, then I freaked it / I put a Rolls Royce on my wrist, oh yeah / F-ck his baby mama tryna sneak diss / I took her to my penthouse, then I freaked it,” Future continues.
Last week, Kendrick confirmed that he would be co-producing on the film’s soundtrack alongside Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith. “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,” he explained in a statement. It’s wonderful to see so much black excellence on one project! I’m sure the Black Panther, already dubbed the highest pre-selling Marvels film, will have a major impact upon it’s release on February 16th! Black Panther: The Soundtrack is due for release February 9th! Red light, green light! Check out Jay Rock, Kendrick Lamar and Future on “King’s Dead” below!
