“Black Panther” Director Ryan Coogler Explains How Kendrick Created Soundtrack

Marvel’s long-awaited film Black Panther hits theaters on February 16, but fans only have to wait until Friday (February 9) to experience the much-anticipated soundtrack curated entirely by Kendrick Lamar and TDE. NPR released excerpts from an upcoming interview with the film’s director, Ryan Coogler, who shared some insight on how the soundtrack came together.

“I’ve been a massive Kendrick fan ever since I first heard him, since his mixtapes,” Coogler told NPR’s David Greene, noting that he’d been trying to track down K. Dot for years. “Eventually I caught up with him a couple of years ago … we said if the opportunity comes, we’d love to work with each other on something.”
