Kendrick Lamar has royalty inside his DNA. Marvel Studios is pumped to announce that Grammy Award-winning artist Kendrick Lamar and Billboard Magazine’s Executive of the Year Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith will curate and produce “Black Panther: The Album” with music from and inspired by the Marvel Studios film “Black Panther.”

Kendrick Lamar is no stranger to “Black Panther” as his single “DNA” was featured in this past San Diego Comic-Con exclusive footage.

Lamar revealed, “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 [Coogler] and Marvel’s vision.”


Lamar and Tiffith will collaborate with critically-acclaimed director Ryan Coogler directly in the creation of music specific to the needs of the film. This will mark the first time that Lamar will write, produce, perform and curate for a major motion picture. This collaboration represents the first time in MCU history that Marvel will integrate multiple original recordings created specifically for the film.

“I am honored to be working with such an incredible artist whose work has been so inspirational, and whose artistic themes align with those we explore in the film. I can’t wait for the world to hear what Kendrick and TDE have in store,” said Coogler, who hand-picked Lamar for this first film music collaboration.

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.

The film stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis.

The film is directed by Ryan Coogler and produced by Kevin Feige with Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Nate Moore, Jeffrey Chernov and Stan Lee serving as executive producers. Ryan Coogler & Joe Robert Cole wrote the screenplay.

Marvel Studio's Black Panther will be distributed in the Philippines by The Walt Disney Company. Follow Marvel on Twitter: ‪https://twitter.com/marvel. Like Marvel on FaceBook: ‪https://www.facebook.com/Marvel
