The Black Panther release date is just a scant few weeks away, and anyone who’s been enjoying those sumptuous trailers has noticed what a big role music choice plays in establishing the film’s vibe. The new song “King’s Dead” from the movie’s soundtrack has a contributor list that looks like it could fill out the top slots at a Wakanda Fest or a Wakanda-chella. So listen to Kendrick Lamar, Future, Jay Rock, and James Blake to get you in the Black Panther pregame mood. You’ve only got 36 days left to pick out your premiere outfit.
