Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers, Kendrick Lamar’s latest album, has finally been released after a five-year hiatus. The double-disc release received a lot of positive feedback, but it also sparked a lot of debate. Others praised (and opposed) Kendrick’s approach to combating homophobia and transphobia. Kendrick Lamar was photographed hanging out in Ghana while folks were discussing the project.
Fans will have a better understanding of Kendrick Lamar’s first trip to Ghana. A new mini-documentary on Kendrick Lamar’s tour through Accra, Ghana, will be released next week, according to Spotify. This morning, a 15-second teaser with the intro to “We Cry Together” was released on social media, showing a bus with the words “oklama Presents… The Big Steppers” driving through Accra’s local neighborhoods.
“First time in Ghana. I couldn’t even tell you what day it is. I’m just being in the moment,” he explained in the trailer. “This life shit is all about an experience and everybody got they own different experience.” In other news, a short film starring Taylour Paige for Kendrick Lamar’s “We Cry Together” is premiering this week in Los Angeles. Hopefully, this will be followed by the official release.
