That settles it! Kendrick Lamar, the greatest of Compton, has announced his return with the release of Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers, his fifth studio album and the first since 2013’s critically acclaimed DAMN.
Kendrick Lamar Finally Announcement
Lamar made the announcement for the May 13 release date of his new album on Monday (April 18). The popular California emcee sent the following note to his Instagram:
(April 18, 2022) – Los Angeles, California This morning at eleven o’clock Pacific Time, Oklama issued the following statement through his Los Angeles-based company, pgLang: Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers, Due out 5/13/2022. This is the sole reliable source for the facts contained in this announcement.
Undoubtedly, Lamar has moved into a new creative phase. The lyricist said in August that the forthcoming album would be his final studio release with longstanding music label TDE, and that he would instead be putting his energy into his own media company, pgLang.
The rapper, who goes by the name Oklama now, made the announcement public via his website in a statement posted last year.
Throughout the majority of my days, I think nothing more than random, passing notions. Writing. Listening. as well as vintage Beach cruiser collections. My early rides take me to a peaceful place where I can think without distraction. Most months, I don’t even bother to get a phone. My peace of mind has been shattered by love, sorrow, and sadness, but God has spoken to me via my music and my loved ones.
Even if my surroundings change, I try to keep my focus on what really matters. Whose story my writings will eventually become a part of. After 17 years, I’m proud to have contributed to the creation of the final TDE album and to have had a small part in leaving such a lasting cultural mark. The Conflicts.
This is the Succeeding. most significantly, the Brotherhood. Top Dawg is a platform for honest artists; may the Most High continue to use him in this capacity. As I keep working toward my ultimate goal. Finishing something off right is a thing of beauty. The constant maintenance of trust in mystery. I hope to see you soon. Oklama.”
