Download and Listen to Kendrick Lamar’s new release “Black Panther” mp3 Song.
Kendrick kicks off the Black Panther soundtrack with a solitary verse speaking from the perspective of T’Challa, the main character, and alter ego of Black Panther.
This is a full contrast to Kendrick’s second verse on “King’s Dead,” (appears later on the album) which speaks from the perspective of Erik Killmonger, who is Black Panther’s rival.
The song bears a calm, peaceful, and uplifting vibe from the instrumentation throughout the song, down to Kendrick’s verse.
This is to exemplify the heroic nature exhibited by T’Challa. On the other hand, Kendrick’s portrayal of the antagonist, Erik Killmonger in “King’s Dead,” is rapped in an aggressive and violent manner, while the beat is more dark and grim.
