The rapid pace of these rappers’ lyrical delivery matches the ante of the instrumental helmed by Mike WiLL Made-It and Teddy Walton. “King’s Dead” debuted nearing the wee hours of Friday morning (Jan. 12) featuring new verses from TDE partners Kendrick Lamar and Jay Rock, and the former’s “Mask Off (Remix)” collaborator, Future.
The beat switch nearing the end of the 3:45-minute melody will also send listeners for a loop and make you hit replay instantly. This track arrives a few days after Lamar and TDE CEO Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith announced plans to executive produce the soundtrack for Black Panther (Feb. 16).
“Marvel Studios’ Black Panther is amazing, from its cast to its director,” Lamar said in a previous statement. “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 and Marvel’s vision.”
