Before Marvel and Walt Disney Studios releases the highly anticipated superhero flick into theaters, Kendrick Lamar has released the official tracklist for Black Panther The Album. Check out the music from the action/adventure film starring the popular Marvel superhero starring Chadwick Boseman.
As we previously mentioned, after the events of Captain America: Civil War, King T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) returns home to Wakanda to serve as his country’s new leader. Before he can sit on the throne, T’Challa is challenged from factions within his own country. When two enemies conspire to destroy Wakanda, Black Panther must team up with C.I.A. agent Everett K. Ross and members of the Dora Milaje, the Wakanadan special forces. They have to prevent Wakanda from being dragged into a world war.
