Ahead of the highly anticipated Black Panther movie, out this Friday, Kendrick Lamar dropped Black Panther: The Albumlast week -- a soundtrack that he curated, produced and is featured on. And of course, it delivered.
The album includes a mix of featured artists, hailing from both South Africa, as well as heavy representation from Lamar's home state of California. Yet "King's Dead" still somehow showcases one of the more diverse lineups on the album, with verses from veteran rapper Jay Rock, modern legend Future, and famed U.K. singer James Blake. It's hard-hitting but still makes time to include a surprise falsetto from Future.
