"Marvel Studios’ Black Panther is amazing, from its cast to its director," he said in a statement, via The Verge. 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 and Marvel’s vision.”
Although this isn't the first time that a music artist has curated the soundtrack for a film or series— JAY-Z curated the soundtrack for The Great Gasby and Solange was the music director for HBO's Insecure--this does mark the first time that Marvel has instituted the practice. Coogler reached out to Kendrick directly to get him involved in the project.
The film is set to be released on Feb. 16.
