It’s the day Kendrick Lamar fans have been patiently waiting for.
After years of growing anticipation, the Compton rapper has returned with Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers—his first full-length project since 2017’s Damn.
On Wednesday, Kendrick lifted the curtain on the cover art for Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers. The photo, shot by Renell Medrano, shows Kendrick donning a thorn crown with a baby in his arms, while a woman sits in the background carrying a baby. TMZ has since reported the woman is Kendrick’s longtime partner Whitney Alford, and the two kids are their children.
Kendrick’s new 2-disc album boasts features from Blxst, Amanda Reifer, Taylour Paige, Sampha, Summer Walker, Ghostface Killah, Kodak Black, Baby Keem, Sam Dew, Tanna Leone, and Beth Gibbons of Portishead.
