Apart from a small number of guest appearances and live sets, Kendrick Lamar has kept quiet these last few years

but it seems the Pulitzer Prize-winning artist is returning with another album next month.

According to a cryptic new press release, Lamar will release “Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers” on May 13.

Responding to an earlier tweet from SK that says, “Kendrick Lamar is officially retired,”

the rap titan responded with a link: oklama.com, which leads to a note that reads:

“The following statement was released today by oklama, through his company pgLang at 11:00 a.m. PT in Los Angeles, CA:

Album: ‘Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers’Release date: 5/13/2022

All factual information for this release will come directly from this source only.”

Lamar’s last full-length project was 2017’s Grammy-winning “DAMN,” which was released just two days before his headlining Coachella set,

also led to his Pulitzer Prize and made him the honoree at Variety’s inaugural Hitmakers event.
