The Marietta-native, who has worked with Beyonce, Kendrick Lamar and others, will work alongside composer Lugwig Göransson and music supervisors Fam Rothstein and Jen Malone to executive produce the album, according to Variety.

In a statement, the rapper and producer said he approached the project by first watching “Creed II.” He then revealed that he created the type of playlist that listeners could “work out to, chill to, vibe to or to get them through any struggle which matched specific scenes in the movie.”
