Boasting 18 tracks split into two albums, the highly anticipated project features contributions from a wide range of guests, including Wu-Tang Clan luminary Ghostface Killah, Kodak Black, Sampha, Summer Walker, Baby Keem, Blxst and Beth Gibbons of Portishead, among others. Producers across the album include Pharrell, Duval Timothy, the Alchemist, Beach Noise, Boi-1da, Sounwave, Dahi, FNZ, J.LBS, Bekon, and many more.
Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers follows the release of “The Heart Pt. 5” and serves as Kendrick’s final album for Top Dawg Entertainment, which he revealed in August 2021. “As I produce my final TDE album, I feel joy to have been a part of such a cultural imprint after 17 years,” he wrote in part.
