It’s only two weeks until the highly anticipated Marvel film, Black Panther hits cinemas and the hype around it has been crazy.

The hyped was revved up some last month when it was revealed that the movie’s soundtrack would be curated by Kendrick Lamar and released through Top Dawg Entertainment. And now the tracklist for the Black Panther soundtrack has been revealed.

In keeping with the film’s almost all black and part African cast, the soundtrack features South Africa’s own Sjava, Babes Wodumo, Saudi and Yugen Blakrok on four of its songs.

Yugen is on Opps with Vince Staples while Babes appears with Zacari (dude who sang the hook on Kendrick’s LOVE) on a track called Redemption. Saudi appears on a song titled X alongside 2Chainz and Schoolboy Q, while his Ambitiouz entertainment label mate Sjava appears on a joint called Seasons with Mozzy and Reason.

For a minute there we also thought it was Reason of No Sleep and Top Seven fame, but, sadly, it turns out it’s not another artist from America who goes by the same name.

“I’m still not sure what hurts more. Telling you guys that I’m in fact not the “Reason” on the Black Panther album… or the fact that there’s another “Reason” out there on a project I should been on,” he said in a tweet on Thursday morning.

But there’s no bad blood between the two guys, because LA Reason gave props to the South African artists in a series of tweets.

The Black Panther Soundtrack drops next Friday, check out the artwork below.
