Rapper Kendrick Lamar released his new album titled “Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers”, a release that comes five years after his last record work, “Damn”, which earned him a Grammy in 2017.
Lamar returns with a double album of eighteen unreleased songs that reflect the musical and lyrical variety of the artist, with themes that range from an allegation to his deep Christian beliefs in songs like “United in Grief” or “Savior”, to a criticism of the transphobia in “Auntie Diaries”.
“Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers” includes collaborations with R&B singer Summer Walker, British singer-songwriter Sampha, Portishead vocalist Beth Gibbons, and other American rappers like Ghostface Killah, Kodak Black and Baby Keem.
In its first hours, the cover of this new album has already been the subject of controversy on social networks for showing Lamar, with a crown of thorns and a gun strapped to his waist, holding a child, while in the back of the room a woman is seen breastfeeding a baby.
Even so, the reception of the public is meeting expectations and the album has already accumulated almost 10 million views on the YouTube platform alone.
Finally, the single “The Heart Part 5”, with which the rapper from Compton (California, USA) silenced the voices that predicted his withdrawal, is not part of this new album.
“The Heart Part 5” premiered last Sunday with a successful reception in part due to its controversial video clip, in which Lamar’s face takes the form of well-known African-American characters such as Will Smith, OJ Simpson, Kobe Bryant or Kanye West .
Both this “single” and the album “Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers” confirm the return of one of the most successful rappers on the West Coast of the USA, who in the last five years had only lavished himself musically with the soundtrack of the movie “Black Panther” in 2018 .
