Mr Morale & The Big Steppers - Kendrick Lamar
18 May 2022
Well, the albums been out for a week now and I feel like I can finally give a review on it and talk about how it’s ranked compared to Kendrick’s other projects.
From the start ‘United in Grief’. The way the song changes beat and my god that intro is just fantastic. 100% it’s Kendrick’s best album opener.
This is Kendrick’s most personal album.
This is Kendrick expressing himself in ways we haven’t seen and he does it perfectly.
Songs like ‘N95’ and ‘Die Hard’ are the perfect essence of Kendrick being able to rap fast and make a catchy song and that people can just listen to.
‘We Cry Together’ is unique in the sense that it’s just an argument and there’s really no “song” with it.
‘Worldwide Steppers’ is also unique in that it shows Kendrick being able to rap quick and still have his message sent clearly.
I’m not going to talk about every single song on this album otherwise I’d be here for 10 hours talking about it. I’m just going to highlight a couple and let you guys figure out what the rest mean.
‘Auntie Diaries’. Yes I am aware of the controversy with this song right now.
And no I’m not going into the lyrics.
I myself am bi and I don’t mind the use of the word but I don’t speak for the whole LGBTQ+ community so feel free to speak on what you guys think of the song.
Mother I sober. Wow what a song. This song had me in tears the first listen.
This song is deep.
This is 100% a top 5 Kendrick song.
This album. ‘Mr Morale & The Big Steppers is incredible. Kendrick took it to another level. He proved he is the best rapper alive today with this album here.
This album is better than GKMC in my opinion.
This album is better than Section 80.
It’s not better than TBAB
It’s better than DAMN.
In my personal opinion this is Kendrick’s second best album musically, but it is Kendrick’s best album lyrically.
I have to give this album a 9/10.
