Kendrick Lamar Posts Shout-Out Tweet to 'Black Panther: The Album' Collaborators

For allowing him to “execute a sound for the soundtrack.”

By //Music

Though technically not a Kendrick Lamar album, there is not one track off of the Black Panther: The Album soundtrack that doesn’t involve the GRAMMY winning artist. Out of 14 tracks, Lamar is listed as a performer on five of them along with being credited as a songwriter on each and every one. Kendrick also makes some uncredited appearances as a vocalist throughout the OST.

Now just a few days after the release of the album, Kendrick took to his personal Twitter account to post a thank you tweet to all the collaborators on the album for allowing him to “execute a sound for the soundtrack.” He continued, “The concept of producing and composing a project other than my own has always been ideal. I appreciate the experience love ones. Continue to be great.”

The album’s contributors include Sounwave, BADBADNOTGOOD, Frank Dukes, Mike WiLL Made It, Doc McKinney, and Cardo. As far as vocalists are concerned, TDE artists like SZA, Jay Rock, and ScHoolboy Q make appearances, as well as rising west coast forces Mozzy and SOB x RBE. Not to mention The Weeknd, Jorja Smith, Future, Swae Lee, Khalid, and Travis Scott.

You can listen to Black Panther: The Album below. Black Panther hits theaters on February 16. In other related news, Kendrick Lamar will ban photos at his live shows.
