Kendrick Lamar & TDE Deliver Insane 14-Track Soundtrack Album For “Black Panther” Ft. Anderson .Paak, Travis Scott, Vince Staples & More

Black Panther Soundtrack Kendrick Lamar

Wow. Kendrick Lamar and Top Dawg Entertainment have done it again. He’s proven time and time again he’s arguably the best current hip-hop artist at crafting albums, but this time around he’s excelled not only at crafting his own album, but shows that he, along with Anthony "Top Dawg" Fiffith, are incredible album curators. When we heard Kendrick was curating and producing the soundtrack album for Marvel’s Black Panther movie we knew it was going to be amazing…. but this is just next level. 

Every song is incredible and Kendrick really couldn’t have put together a better group of artists for this special project. Kendrick is only credited on five songs, but appears across the whole project adding the perfect compliment to each collaborator. Some songs go HARD, while others are the perfect soulful balance.

The film's director Ryan Coogler has been a Kendrick fan for years and finally tracked him down to have a conversation about the movie. He said Kendrick “he came in and watched quite a bit of the movie, and the next thing I know, they were booking a studio and they were going at it.” They then worked on the album while on the DAMN. tour, and did not disappoint.

We’ve never heard an movie soundtrack this good and are very excited to see the movie now. It’s rare for even the best movie soundtracks to have much longevity but this just feels like a really good album that we’ll undoubtedly be coming to for a long time to come. We hope this has other movie soundtracks stepping up their game. Enjoy!

TDE's Latest Signee SiR Drops Extra Soulful Debut Album : Hip-Hop / Soul

SiR November Debut Album

Top Dawg Entertainment’s newest (and most soulful) artist SiR just dropped his must hear debut studio album November and it’s sounding amazing. This is the latest TDE signee’s first project singe joining the likes of Kendrick Lamar, SZA, ScHoolboy Q, Isaiah Rashad, Jay Rock and Ab-Soul on arguably the most prestigious label in hip-hop right now. 

SiR is full of soul. The talented singer and rapper has a smooth voice that just effortlessly glides over any type of production. The full project finds a chill sound throughout, with some songs utilizing pianos and he even experiments with some auto-tune on “I Know” showing his versatility. He shines on the slow jams, bringing some amazing diversity to what was already our favorite label in hip-hop. We can’t wait to see where SiR goes from here, but for now… enjoy!
