Black Panther (2018) w/ Raymond Luu of Reel Asian Podcast

This week, Raymond Luu of Reel Asian Podcast and I cover the Kendrick Lamar curated soundtrack for the 2018 Ryan Coogler film, Black Panther. We talk about the vibrancy of the album and how  Coogler’s request for a couple of songs evolved into an entire soundtrack and how that soundtrack is such a great companion piece to this Oscar nominated MCU film. We cover some of our favorite songs from the film such as SOB x RBE's "Paramedic", SZA and Kendrick Lamar's "All the Stars", as well as the Grammy winning song "King's Dead", among many others. We also do a deep dive into the film, highlighting many of the great performances, including the late Chadwick Boseman's King T'Challa and Michael B. Jordan as Eric Killmonger.
