Well, talk about announcing something out of nowhere.
Kendrick Lamar has revealed the title of his new album Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers through a quote tweet by a fan who said “Kendrick Lamar is officially retired.” He redirects us to his oklama website where he also announces the release date for the album: May 13th.
Kendrick recently won a GRAMMY for his contribution to Baby Keem’s song ‘Family Ties‘. Back in August, he had ended his silence by announcing that he was working on his final album on longtime label TDE.
“As I produce my final TDE album, I feel joy to have been a part of such a cultural imprint after 17 years. The Struggles. The Success. And most importantly, the Brotherhood. May the Most High continue to use Top Dawg as a vessel for candid creators. As I continue to pursue my life’s calling,” he had said in a statement.
Kendrick has not released an album since DAMN in 2017 which recently celebrated its 5th anniversary.
