With Black Panther now the highest-rated live-action superhero movie ever, Kendrick Lamar's connection with the historic film is also cemented, thanks to his original soundtrack album -- but he doesn't want to stop there.

In a recent interview with BBC Radio 1, host Clara Amfo asked the Grammy-winning artist if he'd be interested in a cameo for the film's sequel. He went on to say that he enjoyed Michael B. Jordan's character, villain Erik Killmonger, sharing "He was a villain but he was loved and misunderstood, so if I could, I'd play a Killmonger for sure."

Lamar also said it was a "privilege" to be involved with the historic film, and that it "is something that not only stands within its moment but stands within time."

Furthermore, the rap superstar talked about his Grammys performance, how he goes undercover when he's in the UK and the music that has inspired him.

Also, in case you missed it, this is the deleted scene Ryan Coogler fought to keep in ‘Black Panther’ (spoilers).
