While it’s brief and you probably need to rewind and rewatch once or twice before you really pick up on it, it seems like we’ll be getting some new Kendrick Lamar music on the upcoming Black Panther movie. The contributions aren’t all that shocking considering that Marvel previously used Kendrick’s “DNA.” for the trailer they previewed at San Diego’s Comic-Con H panel.
Kendrick seems to already have some things scheduled for 2018. Earlier this week, ESPN announced that he’d be the inaugural halftime performer for the College Football Playoff Championship. The Compton rapper will hit the stage on January 8th, 2018 at Atlanta’s Centennial Olympic Park.
Kendrick is also nominated for seven Grammy nominations for the 2018 ceremony. The rapper’s going head to head with Jay-Z for Rap Album Of The Year and Album Of The Year. In addition to that, he’s also nominated for “Record Of The Year” for “HUMBLE.”
2017 was the year of Kendrick Lamar. His DAMN album sold over 603,000 first week copies. As of today, Damn has pretty much sold 3 million copies. Making him the highest selling rap artist of 2017. Kendrick has dominated 2017 and it looks like he’s going to dominate 2018 with all these upcoming moves.
