It’s been 1855 days since Kendrick Lamar’s last album DAMN., an album that cemented Kendrick as one of the most profound artists of our generation.

Lamar has accumulated a staggering total of 14 Grammy wins, and became the first non-classical, non-jazz musician to win a Pulitzer Prize for his 2017 album DAMN..

1 Pulitzer Prize, 1 Pandemic and 1 Child later Kendrick emerges with a bold new body of work – Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers.

Featuring collabs with Blxst, Ghostface Killah, Sampha, Summer Walker and Portishead’s Beth Gibbons, the album holds no punches and tackles a complex range of topics such as sexuality, mental health, domestic violence, police brutality, #metoo, social media and cancel culture.

It’s an album coated in maturity, self-reflection and uncompromising artistic integrity.

Kendrick gracefully shifts from poetry to social commentary with such skill and lyrical dexterity it’s a refreshing reminder of the true power of storytelling.

This is not an easy album to sit through and it’s obvious Kendrick’s intention is to make his audience feel uncomfortable at times, but like all great works of art it pushes you to think deeper, listen closer and consider a different perspective.
