"King's Dead", by 90059 rapper Jay Rock, features Kendrick Lamar, Future and James Black, follows Lamar and SZA's single "All the Stars", released last week.

The Kendrick Lamar and Top Dawg-curated soundtrack to Marvel's Black Panther has produced its second single, and it's a dark, foreboding mood-setter.

The 14-track album is available for pre-order on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon Music and Google Play.

The song from the anticipated Black Panther: The Album features falsetto from Future, a snippet from James Blake, and Jay Rock sandwiched between Lamar decimating the track.

Some are whispering that the soundtrack will serve as the American Gangster to Kendrick's Jay-Z, meaning the movie inspired him so much he threw his all into an album on a whim, and now, with the release of the newest track from the soundtrack, that talk will get louder. It's Lamar's first foray into the world of movie soundtracks.
