Kendrick Lamar curates all-star blockbuster soundtrack.
Currently experiencing a ’70s Bowie-like period of manic creativity, Kendrick Lamar has found time in between arena tours and zeitgeist defining solo albums to curate the soundtrack to new superhero flick Black Panther.
The record has turned out to be another vintage effort from K.Dot, and in the remarkable array of talent he has brought together for the project, the rapper has further highlighted the fact that hip hop is currently experiencing another golden age.
This is particularly evident of Lamar’s hometown of LA, where the artists like Flying Lotus, Thundercat and the Odd Future crew have continued to make groundbreaking music that in addition to its own aesthetic brilliance, also exerts a huge influence on the wider culture.
