Kendrick Lamar New Album After 5 Years, “Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers”
Lamar previously teased on his website, oklama.com, Mr. Morale is a double album consisting of 18 tracks. While Rihanna is unfortunately absent on this album, Lamar collaborated with several artistes for the first time like Blxst, Amanda Reifer, Sampha, Taylour Paige, Summer Walker, Ghostface Killah, Kodak Black, Sam Dew, Tanna Leone, and Beth Gibbons.
Amongst those featured, Baby Keem happens to be the only artiste on the double album that has worked with him as a feature previously on “Family Ties” and “Range Brothers”.
Lamar also samples Florence Welch in “We Cry Together”, giving her writing credit on the track and mixing her vocals with Paige.
Notably, one song not on the album is “The Heart Pt. 5”, which K.Dot released earlier this week as the first taste of his Mr. Morale era.
Recall, Lamar first announced the album in April 2022, after writing last August that it would be his final for longtime label Top Dawg Entertainment.
