The Black Panther soundtrack is already legendary, and we haven't even seen the full tracklist yet.

As the mastermind behind Black Panther: The Album, Kendrick Lamar has already dropped a collaboration with SZA and teased a new song with Vince Staples. Now, he's unleashed a Black Panther track by TDE labelmate Jay Rock that features himself, Future, and James Blake.

After a Jay Rock verse, Future joins Kendrick on the second hook as they trade lines back and forth: "Miss me with that bullshit (bullshit) / You're not a gang member, you's a tourist (a tourist)." Then James Blake offers a break from the song's hard-edged energy with smooth vocals on the bridge.

"King's Dead" will be available on iTunes/Apple Music and Spotify tonight at midnight, but TDE shared the track early on SoundCloud Thursday evening. Listen below.

"Marvel Studios' Black Panther is amazing, from its cast to its director," Lamar said in a press release last week, addressing his role with the film. "The magnitude of this film showcases a great marriage of art and culture. I'm truly honored to contribute my knowledge of producing sound and writing music alongside [director Ryan Coogler] and Marvel's vision."

You can watch the film's latest teaser trailer below, soundtracked by an unreleased song that features both Kendrick Lamar and Vince Staples.
