Through pgLang, on Monday, Kendrick Lamar announced that his new album Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers will release on May 15th.

Kendrick Lamar is nowhere close to retiring. On Monday, the rapper retweeted a Twitter user who claimed that “Kendrick Lamar is officially retired,” linking his website which features a new file update. In the file appears a press release, announcing that Lamar’s upcoming album Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers will release on May 15th.

The announcement comes just days after the five-year anniversary of Lamar’s fourth album DAMN. In August 2021, the rapper teased that the record would be his “final TDE album.” “May the Most High continue to use Top Dawg as a vessel for candid creators. As I continue to pursue my life’s calling,” he wrote. “There’s beauty in completion. And always faith in the unknown.”

In July, Lamar will co-headline Rolling Loud Miami, his first performance at the rap festival since 2017.

In March 2020, Lamar and Dave Free started pgLang, what the two describe as a “a new multi-lingual, at service company.” Earlier this month, the company had a recent win, as Baby Keem won Best Rap Performance at the 2022 Grammys for “Family Ties,” his 2021 collaboration with Lamar.

During a recent interview with Mic, Top Dawg Entertainment president Terrence “Punch” Henderson Jr spoke on Lamar’s departure from the label, and praised his work with Keem.

“He’s doing a great job developing Baby Keem. It’s always been there, but now it’s just time and space where he can actually do it. It’s a beautiful thing to watch because that’s something that started with what we built in the beginning. To see it blossom, it’s a full-circle moment.”

Kendrick Lamar has finally delivered a due date for his new album. Titled Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers, Lamar posted the official album announcement via his oklama.com website, but he let the world know in extremely eccentric (and very Kendrick Lamar) fashion that shows he’s been listening to all of the Twitter stans demanding an album update for months. Lamar quote retweeted a two-month-old tweet saying, “Kendrick Lamar is officially retired,” with just the link to his website. On the website’s landing page, there are two old-school Microsoft Windows folder icons. The first one labeled “nuthoughts” takes you to his statement from last August where he indicated that his next album would be “my final TDE album.” But the new folder, marked by an all black Windows folder takes you to a statement printed on official pgLang letterhead (the media company/label founded by Lamar and Dave Free in 2020) and it reads simply: Release date: 5/13/2022 All factual information for this release will come directly from this source only.” Kendrick Lamar has finally announced Mr Morale & The Big Steppers. Let the countdown to May 13th begin.
