Less than three weeks after demolishing the Grammy Awards’ stage and announcing ‘The Championship Tour’, Kendrick Lamar and Top Dawg Entertainment are back with more music. At midnight, Kendrick Lamar released the much anticipated ‘Black Panther’ soundtrack. Despite a bad review from a critic or two, anticipation for the ‘Black Panther’ soundtrack could not have been higher and the project did not disappoint. Complete with new music from Vince Staples, Jorja Smith, Travis Scott, Anderson .Paak and more, the album received rave reviews from just about anybody with a WiFi connection and a music streaming service subscription.

This Black Panther soundtrack is beyond incredible. I don’t even have the words to articulate how good it is. Wow.

Among the fourteen new tracks, fan favorites include 2 Chainz and Schoolboy Q’s “X”, SZA’s “All The Stars” and Jay Rock’s “King’s Dead”. Not to mention, the soundtrack features a major look for Vallejo, California’s own, SOB X RBE. The rising California collective has gained attention from XXL, Genius and more over the past year. Their standout track, “Paramedic”, appears to be the icing on the cake for the Bay Area collective.
The Kendrick and SOB x RBE song got me gassed for the weekend way early
