Kendrick Lamar releases his first album in 5 years. The sprawling and dense double album is a cathartic, soul-baring autobiography.
The complex, thought-provoking ‘Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers’ is the first long-player from Kendrick Lamar in half a decade. A double album consisting of two suites of nine songs each, hip-hop’s most conscious, switched-on rapper addresses themes of trauma, identity, accountability and ‘cancel culture’, set to music containing elements of funk, free jazz, psychedelia, soul and blues.
