Kendrick Lamar's ability to curate did not disappoint when it came to the daunting task of crafting Marvel's Black Panther The Album soundtrack, which dropped Friday (Feb. 9). The 30-year-old plucked talent from across the globe, employing an impressive range of industry superstars and talented emerging artists looking to gain global recognition.
The Compton native explored Africa to bring some Mzansi flavor to the highly anticipated film's soundtrack. Four South African artists ended up making the cut, scattered throughout varying tracks on the project. Babes Wodumo, Sjava, Yugen Blakrok, and Saudi each went toe-to-toe with some of the best North American music has to offer, which made for an interesting dynamic and many tuneful collaborations.
