Song of the Day: "All the Stars"

Kendrick Lamar curated the soundtrack to Black Panther, and it stands as one more aspect of the project's success (critical praise? check; massive box office? check; a part of the zeitgeist? check; hit soundtrack? check). 

It's really kinda weird they didn't make the movie sooner. Like much, much sooner.

Also Kendrick Lamar isn't doing too badly for himself. Sure, his last 2 albums received the highest Metacritic scores for their respective years (2015's To Pimp a Butterfly with a Metacritic score of 96  and 2017's DAMN with a 95) but lost the Grammy for Album of the Year to Adele (Metacritic score of 75) and Bruno Mars (Metacritic score of 70), respectively. But he's at least won one Grammy (take that, Liza), and the Pulitzer Prize has him looking toward PEGOT. Of course he needs to win EOT...

Too bad they used some art without permission (stole it, really). https://mobile.nytimes.com/2018/02/11/arts/black-panther-kendrick-lamar-lina-iris-viktor.html
