Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers is the fifth studio album by American rapper Kendrick Lamar, released on May 13, 2022, by PGLang, Top Dawg Entertainment (TDE), Aftermath Entertainment, and Interscope Records. The double album is Lamar’s first studio album release since Damn (2017), his first album release under his creative collective PGLang, and his final project with TDE (under which he released four albums and was one of their flagship artists).

Regarded as Lamar’s most confessional body of work, Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers is a concept album that analyzes and reflects on his life experiences during his therapy journey. Its lyrics touches on a variety of personal themes, including childhood and generational trauma, infidelity, and celebrity worship. Primarily a conscious hip hop record, the album experiments with minimalist production while incorporating elements of jazz, R&B, trap, and soul. It features narration by Whitney Alford and Eckhart Tolle, and guest appearances from Blxst, Amanda Reifer, Sampha, Taylour Paige, Summer Walker, Ghostface Killah, Baby Keem, Kodak Black, Sam Dew, Tanna Leone, and Beth Gibbons of Portishead. Lamar, who executive produced the album under the pseudonym Oklama, reunited with frequent collaborators Sounwave, J. Lbs, DJ Dahi, and Bekon for the majority of the album’s production.

Upon release, Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers was met with widespread acclaim from critics, who praised Lamar’s lyricism and the album’s scope, although a few found it inconsistent. The album was supported by three singles: “N95”, which was a top-five hit on the US Billboard Hot 100, “Silent Hill”, and “Die Hard”. Other promotional initiatives included headlining performances at Glastonbury Festival and Rolling Loud, and a musical guest appearance on the season 48 premiere of Saturday Night Live. Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers debuted atop the Billboard 200, marking Lamar’s fourth number-one album in the United States. It received eight nominations at the 65th Annual Grammy Awards, including Best Rap Album and a historic fourth nomination for Album of the Year. To further promote the album, Lamar is embarking on his fifth solo headlining tour, titled the Big Steppers Tour, which is visiting Europe, North America and Oceania.
