Kendrick Lamar’s new Apple and Spotify-crashing album ”Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers” isn’t even 24 hours old and it’s already creating major shockwaves in rap and live music!

'Mr. Morale' marks the first Kendrick album in over 5 years, and he's apparently ready to be outside -- partnering with Amazon Music and CashApp to announce The Big Steppers Tour, which will co-star his PGLang artists Keem and Tanna Leone for 65 dates.
Talk about a grand return. He'll be on the road from July to December!!! The tour will make stops in in Atlanta, L.A., NYC, Chicago, and also jet overseas to Australia, the U.K. and other parts of Europe.
One thing's for certain, it'll be hard to miss Kendrick in 2022.
