The long wait for Kendrick Lamar’s new album will soon be over. On Monday, April 18, the elusive Compton rapper returned to social media to officially announce his fifth studio album, Mr. Morale and Big Stepsfalling on May 13.

In response to a Feb. 13 tweet claiming the Pulitzer Prize-winning MC is “officially retired,” Kendrick tweeted a link to his website, oklama.com, which features a Michael Jordan-inspired press release from his pgLang company detailing its highly anticipated project.

“The following statement was released today by oklama, through its company pgLang at 11:00 a.m. PT in Los Angeles, California,” the press release read. “Album: ‘Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers.’ Release date: 5/13/2022. »

It continues, “All factual information for this release will come directly from this source only.”

It was through his website oklama.com that Kendrick Lamar sparked excitement for his upcoming fifth album last August. However, the news was bittersweet as K. Dot revealed that the project would mark his final release on Top Dawg Entertainment, the label he has called home since the start of his decorated career.

“I spend most of my days with fleeting thoughts,” he writes. “Writing. Listening. And collecting old beach cruisers. Morning walks keep me on a hill of silence. I go months without a phone. Love, loss and heartbreak have disturbed my comfort zone, but the glimmers of God speak through my music and my family.As the world around me evolves, I reflect on what matters most.The life my words will land in next.

He continued, “As I produce my last album TDE, I feel blessed to have been part of such a cultural imprint after 17 years. The struggles. The success. And above all, the Brotherhood. May the Most High continue to use Top Dawg as a vessel for candid creators. As I continue to pursue my life’s calling. There is beauty in completion. And always faith in the unknown. Thank you for keeping me in your thoughts. I have prayed for you all. See you soon.
