Black Panther is on track to be the movie of 2018, and for good reason, with its excellent blend of superhero action, Afro-futurism, and social awareness. It’s already smashed all sorts of box office records, both here in the States and abroad. And now it has one more feather in its cap: an awesome mix courtesy of acclaimed producer/DJ J.PERIOD titled “#WakandaForeverEver.”
Award-winning DJ/Producer J.PERIOD (Billboard #1 album for The Hamilton Mixtape) takes listeners on an exclusive journey into the secret forests between Wakanda and Stankonia, sampling the Black Panther score and soundtrack to create exclusive new Outkast remixes that explore the roots of hip hop in the African drum, themes of empowerment and identity, and the musical intersections between the Afro-futuristic world of Black Panther and intergalactic funk of Outkast.
