We are one week away from finally getting a new Kendrick project and to be honest, every other artist can just screw off right now.
A new Kendrick project is not something that you get everyday. I still vividly remember listening to “Damn” in high school and it being the album of that 2017 summer. Fast forward 5 years later and King Kendrick is finally set to release “Mr. Morale and the Big Steppers”. Fans have been chomping at the bit for any type of information on the project and Kendrick being the genius that he is, is giving it to us very meticulously.
The other day Kendrick released a photo on his website with two CD’s and a book. One CD said “Mr. Morale” and the other said “Big Steppers”. This of course implies that the album might actually be double-sided. This is great news, but to be honest it's hard for me to even grasp getting a double-sided Kendrick album because for the life of me I have no idea what the vibe of this project will be. Could it be a jazz inspired project like “To Pimp a Butterfly” (TPAB), a more modern rap sounding album like “Damn”, or could it even be a rock inspired album which he has hinted at in the past? I have absolutely no clue, but nonetheless I am hyped. The name “Mr. Morale and the Big Steppers” suggests that there will be a band along with him. If I had to guess right now, I would say it is going to be a combination of TPAB and “Damn”. If “The Big Steppers” implies a band that would lead me to suggest a TPAB vibe and his recent features on Baby Keem’s last project would suggest it is a modern rap/hip-hop vibe.
I’m currently writing this on Thursday at 8:34pm and my prediction is that we are going to get “The Heart Part 5” tonight or sometime before the project. This was also suggested through his website which teases “The Heart”. Whatever, I could keep rambling on about predictions for the project because my excitement is getting the best of me. Either way, I felt that I needed to put this up on the site as I sit here writing this in an airport restaurant listening to Kendrick through my headphones because my flight was delayed.
Let me know what you guys think about everything going on with Kendrick!
