The MCU’s biggest secret exposed: Kendrick Lamar IS The Soul Stone

March 13th, 2018 by Marc 1 Comment

So, we tend to try to avoid Reddit posts as they, well, they are fair game and there’s not usually any real reason to give them undue credit.


A Black Panther fan on Reddit (here) has postulated that the song Pray For Me by Kendrick Lamar’s presence in the movie creates a unique paradox and can only mean that the singer himself is the missing link in the MCU.

After all, we still don’t know where the Soul Stone is located and since Thanos clearly activates the Infinity Gauntlet in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War, we can only assume this theory is completely accurate and sound.

Not really.

Fun read though:

In Black Panther, there is a scene where T’Challa, Nakia, and Okoye enter a hidden casino in South Korea.

As they enter, the song “Pray for Me” by Kendrick Lamar and The Weekend is playing. Unlike most songs in movies, this song is actually playing in the the context of the scene. The characters can hear this song.

Therefore, we can conclude that Kendrick Lamar and The Weekend exist in the MCU. However, this is where we run into trouble. “Pray for Me” was released on February 2, 2018 as apart of Black Panther: The Album by Kendrick Lamar.

This album was created specifically for the movie, and many songs were inspired by the film. This creates a paradox, as Kendrick Lamar clearly exists in the MCU and wrote the song “Pray for Me”. However, he would have never wrote this song or the rest of the album, had it not been for the movie Black Panther.

So we can conclude, that in the MCU the real Black Panther exists, and the film Black Panther exists. Or we can also accept a different conclusion: that Kendrick Lamar and his album somehow exist out of time. Which brings me to my final and most shocking conclusion:

Kendrick Lamar is the Soul Stone

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
