Marvel Studios' Black Panther follows T'Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T'Challa's mettle as king – and Black Panther – is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.
Kendrick Lamar curated and produced the soundtrack album to Black Panther along with Anthony ‘Top Dawg' Tiffith. In addition to the previously released "All the Stars" and "King's Dead," Black Panther The Album: Music From and Inspired By includes three more new songs with Lamar's involvement: "Black Panther," "Big Shot" (with Travis Scott), and "Pray For Me" (with The Weeknd). Other notable contributors include SZA, James Blake, Ab-Soul, Anderson .Paak, Vince Staples, Swae Lee, Schoolboy Q, 2 Chainz, Khalid, Future, Zacari and Mozzy among others.
"Marvel Studios' Black Panther is amazing, from its cast to its director," Kendrick Lamar said. "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 [director] Ryan [Coogler] and Marvel's vision."
