In the last week Kendrick Lamar has been owning the news. He announced he would be curating the soundtrack to Black Panther, released “All the Stars” with SZA, and performed at a college football game halftime show. “King’s Dead,” the lead track from Jay Rock's upcoming album and cut from Black Panther: The Album, featuring Kendrick and Future, premiered yesterday on The Breakfast Club.
Produced by Mike WiLL Made-It and Ted Walton, Jay Rock raps double-time over the heavy beat, while Future channels Juicy J's flow in a hilariously high pitch. Switching tempos more than half way through the song, Kendrick ends with a fiery flow himself, mirroring Rock's energy at the top of the song.
Black Panther: The Album is set to be released February 9.
