"The Birth Of A Nation: The Inspired Album" Drops

Soundtrack features all new exclusive material
Publish date:

The most anticipated film The Birth of A Nation's soundtrack just released, featuring 16 tracks by artists such as Nas, Lil Wayen, Trey Songz, Gucci Mane, Pusha T, Meek Mill, Wale, Ne-Yo, The Game, 2 Chainz, K. Michelle, Leon Bridges and more.

The film's writer, director and star Nate Parker wanted to use the album to "bridge the gap between 1831 and 2016 in a way that would allow young people to connect to Nat Turner's legacy.

“By curating a group of the best contemporary artists to sonically express their feelings of the film,” he says, “the hope was fans would recognize the connection and be curious to know more. (Atlantic Records Chairman and Chief Executive Officer) Craig Kallman, Kevin Weaver (Atlantic Records President of Film & Television) and I spoke with the artists, offering them a platform to address issues they otherwise may never have had the path to address. I believe what has emerged is a series of honest, unfiltered feelings regarding where we were, where we are, and where we ultimately could be with the right collective disposition. I honestly couldn't be more excited to share their Nat Turner-inspired feelings and truths with the world.”
