With the upcoming Nat Turner biopic The Birth of a Nation set to hit theaters everywhere on Friday, October 7, it’s only right to drop an accompanying soundtrack.
The Birth of a Nation: The Inspired by Album is a 16-track project that features music from over a dozen elite rappers and R&B artists in the game. While the album can be streamed on services such as Spotify and YouTube, it is also available for purchase on iTunes.
Despite their latest controversy, you can find both The Game and Meek Mill on the soundtrack. While The Game is featured on “Sins of our Fathers” with Marsha Ambrosius, Meek and 2 Chainz share a track with sultry singer Priscilla Renea titled “Black Moses."
The album also features appearances from Nas, Lil Wayne, Ne-Yo, Pusha T, Anthony Hamilton, Wale, Trey Songz, Vic Mensa, and many more.
The Birth of a Nation will tell the story of Nat Turner, an enslaved Baptist preacher, who led a slave rebellion in 1831. The film’s star, director, and writer, Nate Parker, is due to talk about the movie and his personal controversies in a 60 Minutes interview with Anderson Cooper, set to air Sunday.
