Since Kendrick Lamar released his latest album, the Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers hype hasn’t dissipated. It’s his fifth studio project and for just over 24 hours, timelines have been cluttered with hot takes, controversial opinions, and widespread praise of the Top Dawg Entertainment effort. This reportedly marks the end of an era as Mr. Morale is said to be the last release from Lamar on TDE, but fans are excited about what the Los Angeles icon has mapped out for the future.
As debates and discussions continue, fans have caused several features on the record to go viral. The discourse over Kodak Black’s inclusion remains a heavy topic, but on the lighter side of social media, Ghostface Killah is once again receiving his flowers.
