Although the Black Panther OST was not technically a Kendrick Lamar album, but hardly is there a song on the project that the rapper is not directly involved in. Kendrick Lamar is listed as a performer on 5 of the 14 tracks, and credited as a songwriter on every song on the album. He also makes some appearances as a vocalist throughout the OST. Needless to say, Kendrick took his position as curator of the soundtrack very seriously, and in a message he shared on Twitter, he’s made sure to raise his cap for the large team that made the project possible.
Respect to all the artist/producers that allowed me to execute a sound for the soundtrack.
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
