People have been waiting for Kendrick Lamar’s next project for five years, and now that it’s only days away, the Compton rapper is teasing fans with a new picture that hints we could be getting more than just an album.
A fresh image uploaded on Oklama.com suggests a double album and maybe a book. The DAMN creator is seen holding two disks, one marked “Morale” and the other “Steppers,” along with a book titled “Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers.” It’s worth noticing that both CDs are labeled- “master copy.”

The release date for “Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers” has been set for May 13th. This will be Lamar’s fifth studio album.
“All factual information for this release will come directly from this source only [Oklama.com],” said Kendrick, so while fans believe, the Compton rapper is working on a double album, the artist and his team have not officially confirmed this.
Even though, Kendrick hasn’t released a solo project since 2017, he has collaborated with his cousin, Baby Keem, on “Family Ties,” for which he received the Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance.
Here are some of the best reactions from the fans:
This guy Kendrick Lamar dropping a book along with his entire album it seems.
But if pulls off this double album which I believe he will, then we are in for a ride

I know I’ve been critical of Kendrick’s album announcement but if he’s putting out a double album and book that’s super dope and I really like how he teased it so there’s that🔥 https://t.co/O8eN84LUbo

The double album is where legends are solidified. Tupac, Biggie, OutKast, UGK, etc. Kendrick Lamar throwing his name into that hat is the only name rn that makes sense.
