Kendrick Lamar has finally released his long-awaited solo album titled ‘Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers’. The double-disc album has included features from Baby Keem, Kodak Black, Tanna Leone, Sampha, Ghostface Killah, and more.
‘Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers’ is a follow-up to Kendrick’s 2017 album ‘DAMN.’ which won the prestigious Pulitzer Award, making it the first non-jazz album to win that accolade. Since then Compton’s native Kendrick Lamar has delivered the soundtrack for the Black Panther movie and then following years went MIA as there were rarely any guest features from him.
Last year Kendrick has announced that this album will be his final album under Top Dawg Entertainment through which the rapper has worked since the start of his career and has now formed his own label pg-lang which has signed artists Baby Keem and Tanna Leone. Kendrick’s latest album is released under pg-lang/Top Dawg Ent/Aftermath/Interscope.
For his album, Kendrick has opted out of any traditional rollout as many rappers/artists like to do interviews, magazine covers, etc but all Lamar has done is released the fifth installment of his The Heart series along with visuals where he takes on Nipsey Hussle, Kobe,Kanye, OJ and more faces and raps over Marvin Gaye’s ‘I Want You’ sample.
In the mid-week, Kendrick shared the album cover for ‘Mr. Morale & The Bigger Steppers’ which depicts him with a kid and a gun tucked behind him, far-right his fiancee can be seen sitting with another kid feeding him. You can stream the ‘Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers below:
