Kendrick Lamar to Curate Black Panther Album, Single feat. SZA Released
Connect with us

Kendrick Lamar will co-curate and co-produce Black Panther: The Album for Marvel. A single by Lamar featuring SZA was also released Thursday.

Lamar will work on the album with Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith, the founder of Top Dawg Entertainment, the label behind Lamar and SZA. Black Panther director Ryan Coogler, who chose Lamar himself, according to the Marvel press release, will also be collaborating with the two.

“Marvel Studios’ Black Panther is amazing, from its cast to its director,” Lamar said in the press release. “The magnitude of this film showcases a great marriage of art and culture. I’m truly honored to contribute my knowledge of producing sound and writing music alongside Ryan [Coogler] and Marvel’s vision.”

The single featuring SZA has been embedded below.

“I am honored to be working with such an incredible artist whose work has been so inspirational, and whose artistic themes align with those we explore in the film,” Coogler said. “I can’t wait for the world to hear what Kendrick and TDE have in store.”

According to the release, aside from this being the first time Lamar curated and produced a movie soundtrack, it’s the first time he’s ever written and performed music for a movie at all. It’s also the first time Marvel is gathering together original music for one of its movies.

By the way, Isaiah Rashad, Jay Rock and ScHoolboy Q are just some of the other artists under Top Dawg Entertainment. With the combined star power of Lamar and a Marvel movie though, anybody from anywhere would probably sign up for this.

It’s like Prince pumping out tunes for the Batman soundtrack. If we can get Michael B. Jordan tearing up an art museum while Lamar is blasting in the background, I’ll see the movie every day it’s in theaters.

Black Panther opens Feb. 16.

PS4 News: Romance of The Three Kingdoms XIV Coming Soon

Koei Tecmo is developing Romance Of The Three kingdoms XIV for PS4

Romance Of The Three kingdoms XIV is coming to the ps4 with the game currently being developed by Koei Tecmo. It is expected that it will be released in early 2020. The new strategy game dives deep into China’s lore to rewrite the history of the three Kingdoms.

What is Romance Of The Three Kingdoms XIV?

The latest iteration of the classic tactical series is once again set during the fall of the Han Dynasty in ancient China; where battles take place in a boundary-free scramble for land. The game’s map showcases the territory captured and the thrill of expansion using a simplified colour system – paying homage to the original Romance of The Three Kingdoms XIV, released on PC back in 1985. Everything from war to diplomatic affairs will be geared toward managing and gathering land as players attempt to spread their strategies at will across the vast China map.

In addition, RTK14 will adopt the ruler-based system from RTK9 and RTK11 in order to help return classic gameplay to the series. This means that all actions – from domestic, to political, to battle – will now take place on a single map. Greater individuality among characters will also be on display; with officers from the Three Kingdoms, like Liu Bei and Guan Yu, asserting themselves at various situations in order to fully immerse players into the game’s rich history. But that’s not all, as a new Evolved Artificial Intelligence system is also being implemented to challenge players across repeated playthroughs. With organizations now determined through each ruler’s ideals, different game experiences are now possible via different rulers. Even within the same faction; different policies now bring with them different strategies for expansion, making the wise use of various officers a cornerstone of advanced gameplay.
