Top Dawg Entertainment has released a new song entitled “King’s Dead” off of Black Panther: The Album. TDE is producing the Black Panther soundtrack with Kendrick Lamar, who’s music can be heard on the most recent trailer for the film. “King’s Dead” is performed by Jay Rock, Kendrick Lamar, Future, and James Blake.
This is the second track to be released from Black Panther: The Album. The first, “All The Stars,” is the work of Lamar and SZA and was released with the album announcement last week. Lamar also performed part of the song during the halftime show of the college football National Championship game this past Monday.
You can listen to “King’s Dead,” which contains explicit language, below.
Black Panther: The Album will feature music inspired by the film, including original songs. Lamar is producing and curating the music with Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith and Top Dawg Entertainment. The soundtrack should be out close to the February 16 theatrical release of Marvel Studios’ Black Panther.
