The Black Panther soundtrack is expected to land at the top of the Billboard charts when final reports come out Sunday. Compare the film, the soundtrack’s executive producers Kendrick Lamar and Top Dawg Entertainment and you have literally three of the most trusted brands in media. Matter of fact, TDE and KDot want you to bank on that, especially in their “King’s Dead” video.
Kendrick, Jay Rock and Future all act in different scenes as stock-traders while the rest of the company around them completely lose their minds. At times, the trio can be found rapping from the branches of palm trees (Kendrick decides to eat an elote in the process) as well as performance shots with the three men rapping atop buildings in Los Angeles. To finish setting it off, Kendrick uses his second verse to rap “all hail King Killmonger” in the middle of a busy intersection, just as Metro buses and cars doing donuts pass around him. Watch the crazy great video up top.
