Kendrick Lamar’s height may open some eyes

The wait is finally over. On May 13, Kendrick Lamar released his highly anticipated new album, ‘Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers’.

Before its release, it had been five years since fans had heard of Lamar. Aside from a few features after the release of “DAMN”, including the album “Black Panther”, Lamar was absent from the music space – and now after the release of “Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers”, it’s clear why. On his fifth studio album a chorus opens the album Encouraging Lamar to “tell them the truth” before saying he’s been “going through something for 1,855 days.” By doing the math, 1855 days ago April 14, 2017, was the release date of “DAMN”.

“Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers” is a double album, set in two parts: “Mr. Morale” and then “The Big Steppers”, per Pitchfork. The album side of “Mr. Morale” works with deep-seated issues that Lamar contemplates and tries to figure out during the songs, such as family issues and personal questions, per Vulture. “The Big Steppers”, on the other hand, deals with Lamar’s relationships, but the album leaves a lot of room for contemplation. And judging by “DAMN’s” experiences, fans have plenty of time to dissect its deeper and provocative meanings, but hopefully not for five years. But if fans have been too busy obsessing over the new album—and we can’t blame them for that—there are some personal vendettas in the album references, including Lamar’s growth, that will shock listeners.

Kendrick Lamar’s height has surprised fans

Since the release of Kendrick Lamar’s fifth studio album, “Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers,” fans can only talk about the rapper’s return to music and the tour he also surprisingly dropped, per Variety. But when fans see the Grammy-winning rapper take the stage this summer, they might notice that he’s a lot smaller than expected.

Kendrick Lamar is only 5’6″. But despite his smaller stature, the rapper makes up for it in stage presence and lyricism – and that seems to be something he knows. On his 2017 album ‘DAMN’ the song “DNA” tells about its own characteristics† Presenting it in a forceful and almost smug way, though Lamar’s height may not be one of those traits he exactly possesses, it seems like he doesn’t mind. “I was born that way, from such an immaculate conception,” he raps.

And it’s his height, and what makes him, well, him, that Lamar alludes to in “Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers’. In the song “Mr. moral’ it looks like Lamar is Mr Moraal himself, after the album follows his transformation and his spirit through the past five years. And while Lamar hasn’t grown physically, he has grown spiritually instead. It’s a theme that presents itself throughout the album, with Lamar even proving and demonstrating his newfound growth by rapping“You should know I’m a little off, warding off demons who’ve been outside / Better known as myself, I’m a demigod.”

How Kendrick Lamar has grown spiritually with his new album

While Kendrick Lamar talked about his physical features in ‘DAMN’, in ‘Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers’, he focuses on his growth, mentally rather than physically.

Based on the album cover in itself it is remarkable that Lamar certainly sees the world with new eyes, as the rapper is now a father of two. In 2019, Lamar and his fiancée Whitney Alford welcomed a daughter page six† But the two have never announced the birth of their second child, until now while Lamar and his family grace the cover. Amid the album artwork, Lamar can be seen holding their oldest child while looking to the right, while Alford lies on the bed in the back, rocking their youngest.

But a growing family isn’t the only expansion Lamar is addressing on the new album, as he looks back on his own childhood. For example, in the song “Father Time,” Lamar explores his problems with his father and how his view of masculinity has been distorted in his life. It’s introspective themes like this one, and of therapy, religion and spirituality on the album that show Lamar’s growth, per Complex. And while his growth didn’t take place physically – other than his growing family – Lamar seems to prove within “Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers” that physical height isn’t the only thing that matters. As Lamar gears up for a tour this summer, we know he makes up for what he lacks in height with everything else.
