Jay-Z, Rakim, Nas, Nipsey Hussle & More Appear On “Judas and the Black Messiah: The Inspired Album”
The film tells the tale of an informant who infiltrated the Black Panthers and learns as much as he can from leader and activist Fred Hampton, and now we’ve received the movie’s accompanying soundtrack. The star-studded project was shared on Friday (February 12), and even with only a few hours live, fans are raving about the musical collection. We’ve previously reported on Jay-Z and Nipsey Hussle’s addition “What It Feels Like” as well as Nas and Hit-Boy’s “EPMD”—two of the 22 tracks that help communicate the tone of the blockbuster film.
Other artists who lent their talents to the soundtrack include H.E.R., Black Thought, Smino, Saba, Masego, JID, Rapsody, BJ The Chicago Kid, White Dave, G Herbo, Nardo Wick, Pooh Shiesty, Polo G, Rakim, Dom Kennedy, SiR, SAFE, Kiana Ledé, and A$AP Rocky.
