Contestants Don't Know Kendrick Lamar "I really enjoy [Erik] Killmonger's character,  just off the simple fact that he was a villain but he came with some real [talk]," Lamar told the BBC. "He was a villain, but he was loved and misunderstood. So if I could, I’d play a Killmonger for sure." Lamar curated and contributed to the soundtrack for the current film, which also features SZA, Schoolboy Q, Jay Rock, and SOB x RBE. With Black Panther's blockbuster success, a sequel seems certain. Perhaps Kendrick will get his wish.
