Kendrick Lamar spotted in Ghana ahead of album release


American rapper, Kendrick Lamar has landed in Ghana ahead of the release of his upcoming album, Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers.

A photo of the rapper eating at a restaurant in Ghana went viral.

According to reports, the rapper is shooting a documentary series in the country. He is also expected to hold a private album listening in the country. To confirm the news, the restaurant Kozo GH where he went to eat, shared a picture of Kendrick Lamar on their Instagram handle.

In April Kendrick Lamar tweeted a new link to his Oklama website announcing the release date for his much anticipated album.

On the site, the rapper revealed his new album’s title and release date: Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers is out May 13.

Lamar teased the record—his “final TDE album,” as he described it—on a website launched in August 2021. “May the Most High continue to use Top Dawg as a vessel for candid creators. As I continue to pursue my life’s calling,” he wrote at the time.

“There’s beauty in completion. And always faith in the unknown.” He signed the note, “Oklama.”

Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers follows Lamar’s Pulitzer-winning 2017 album Damn. Since then, he’s curated and helmed the Black Panther soundtrack, headlined Coachella and Top Dawg Entertainment’s Championship Tour, won a bunch of Grammy Awards, and been nominated for an Oscar.
