Kendrick Lamar Reveals ‘Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers’ Album Cover

Written by on May 11, 2022

With less than 48 hours to go, Kendrick Lamar has unveiled the cover art for his new album Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers.

The powerful imagery finds the Compton rapper holding what appears to be his daughter while wearing a crown of thorns, with a gun tucked into his waistband. A woman who appears to be his fiancée, Whitney Alford, can be seen sitting on a bed nursing a baby.

In July 2019, it was reported that Kendrick and Whitney welcomed a daughter, but this is the first time she has been seen.

It would also be the first time it was revealed that he has a second child.

Earlier in the week, Kendrick dropped his new song “The Heart Part 5” alongside a video, which finds him morphing into Kanye West, Kobe Bryant, Will Smith, OJ Simpson, and the late Nipsey Hussle.

Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers, his final release on TDE, arrives Friday. He previously hinted that the project would be a double album and also include a book.
