Anyways, as the film approaches the $1 billion mark and the soundtrack has topped the Billboard 200 for two straight weeks, Kendrick Lamar sat down with BBC Radio 1’s Clara Amfo for a brief conversation following his car-smashing BRIT Awards performance. During their time together Kenny expressed an interest in landing a role in Black Panther 2 (because we know it’s going to happen now), preparing for live shows, finding inspiration, his GRAMMY performance, and more.
In between clips of others speaking on him, K. Dot revealed that he actually wants to be a villain in the same vein as Eric Killmonger. “I really enjoy Killmonger’s character, he was a villain but he came with that real talk,” he said, speaking on Michael B. Jordan’s polarizing character. “He was dropping them jewels. He was a villain but he was loved and misunderstood. So if I could, I’d play a Killmonger for sure.”
