The time has arrived! After years of waiting and months of anticipation, Kendrick Lamar has finally dropped his fifth studio album, Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers. Before we could get to our breakdowns and initial reviews, we started the episode discussing the shocking news of Lil Keed's unfortunate passing (2:00) and the recent R.I.C.O. charges against Young Thug and his YSL music label (4:00).
Before we dived into the album, we shared our thoughts on Kendrick Lamar's "The Heart Part 5" (39:20). We then spent the majority of the episode breaking down Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers (48:55), including K. Dot's controversial use of a homophobic slur in his song "Auntie Diaries" (1:07:10). After months of Baby Keem slander, it may finally become time for Rob to take back his criticism (1:27:35), and Nate had a message for the rappers who prioritize money over the craft (1:32:30). Enjoy the episode!
