We’re about as hyped for the Kendrick Lamar-curated Black Panther: The Album as we are for the movie itself — and that’s saying a lot. K.Dot took to Twitter today to show off both the album’s enigmatic T’Challa claw pendant necklace-flossing cover and the full tracklist/participating artists:

Although the exclusion of “Legend Has It” by Run the Jewels, heard in the first Black Panther trailer is a bit disappointing, the record still boasts more than a few artists that have us ready to head nod.
Schoolboy Q? Anderson Paak? A sure-to-be smooth ditty from Khalid & Swae Lee? The Weekend x Kendrick Lamar? All signs are pointing towards Black Panther: The Album being a worthy companion to the film and then some; the album drops on February 9th on digital formats and February 16th for physicals.
