Kendrick Lamar wrote ‘Mr. Morale’ to keep his fans going
Ever since Kendrick Lamar dropped his fifth studio album, Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers, the project has been highly acclaimed by many hip hop stakeholders. During his recent performance at Glastonbury, the ‘’Savior’’ rapper shared the motivation behind writing of the album.
“So many faces, y’all blessed me to be upon this stage,” Kendrick told audience. “And you know we blessed to make sure we give y’all some sh*t you feel, and that’s the real reason why I wrote Mr. Morale, because everybody’s going through something.” He continued, “No matter what you’re going through, imperfection is beautiful.”
“I wear this crown. They judged Christ,” he added. “They judge you, they judge Christ… I wear this as a representation so you’ll never forget one of the greatest prophets that ever walked the earth.”
