The Black Panther 2017 movie is special to the black community the connection to musican Kendrick Lamar’s work goes beyond the artist’s commercial and critical success. Both Ryan Coogler the director for this film and starring role actor Chadwick Boseman (who plays Black Panther in the film) said they felt a personal attachment to Kendrick Lamar’s song “DNA,” leading to its appearance in one the Black Panther movie trailers.
“The lyrics are amazing — a lot of Kendrick’s are,” Coogler told the Los Angeles Times in July. “It’s actually oddly literal for our trailer’s purposes — and I think a lot of the cultural things we’re dealing with in Wakanda are in the zeitgeist in the African-American community.”
Kendrick Lamar’s “DNA” song relates to the deep topics of rising up and standing proud in an oppressive society, Black Panther will examine how a kingdom could have progressed into greatness if it hadn’t been conquered.
“You’re talking about a world that would exist if the Egyptians were never conquered, if Sumeria was never conquered and was allowed to progress — that’s what Wakanda is,”Chadwich Boseman told the Times.
We haven’t received any hints as to what Lamar’s new song for Black Panther will sound like, but considering the music he’s known for and the theme of Black Panther, it’s not too far of a stretch to expect another generational anthem.
Black Panther will be released on Feb. 16, 2018.
