What is Kendrick Lamar’s new album like?

His first release in five years, Mr Morale & The Big Steppers, was long-awaited by Kendrick fans, and it did not disappoint.

We were teased in the days before the album drop with an addition to Kendrick’s ‘The Heart’ collection.

'The Heart Part 5' followed a journey of grief and pain against American race culture as well as towards the death of rap legend and friend, Nipsey Hussle.

In the music video, Kendrick can be seen morphing into recognisable faces including Kanye West, Will Smith, and OJ Simpson, and taking on the character of Nipsey to express himself through his eyes.

Credited for its quality of lyric and eclecticism, the newest album is reminiscent of Kendrick’s style in To Pimp a Butterfly. The album demonstrates a strong focus on trauma within families and the black community, and sees Kendrick seek therapy through his lyrics.

Mr Morale & The Big Steppers has left fellow rappers, such as Eminem, in awe, and re-establishes Kendrick Lamar as the strongest lyricist and storyteller in the game.
