Listen to Kendrick Lamar and Travis Scott’s New Song “Big Shot”
Black Panther arriving in theaters this month is not only good news for movie buffs, but it's also a great sign of new music from some of the game's best rappers. The soundtrack for Marvel's forthcoming film is out today (Feb. 9), which features a new collaboration between Kendrick Lamar and Travis Scott called "Big Shot."
The new track is produced by Cardo, and features the superstar rappers spitting some heated bars over the flute-infused instrumental. The Compton, Calif. hitmaker serves up some bold lyrics on the hook before kicking off the first verse by name-dropping Top Dawg Entertainment founder, as well as Puff Daddy.
"Serve that work for Kung-Fu Kenny/Got juice, got work, got weight, got plenty," he raps. "Got them, got her, got more, got Benji (yeah)/Top off, gettin' topped-off in the city/Big Top Dawg and I dance on ’em like Diddy/Pop off and I pop back like Fiddy (yeah)."
Elsewhere on the song, the Houston rapper comes through with some Auto-Tune vocals for his verse, where he gives a shout out to the late Pimp C, and uses a metaphor with Iggy Azalea.
"Purped up, syrup'd up, nigga, like Pimp C/Flight suit, ’bouta slide down Space City," Travis rhymes. "Top down, she down under like Iggy (yeah, it's lit)/Lockjaw when the night-call too litty/Knockoff, get your rocks off, got plenty/Got rocks, got Js, got 'Ye, got liney (yeah)."
Black Panther: The Album, which was put together by K. Dot and Anthony "Top Dawg" Tiffith, also contains tracks from The Weeknd, Mozzy, ScHoolboy Q, 2 Chainz, Swae Lee, Vince Staples, Ab-Soul, Anderson .Paak, Jay Rock, Future and more.
