Following the release of his chart-topping album Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers, the global superstar visited Accra for “A Day in Ghana with Kendrick Lamar.” He immersed himself in culture and gave some words of wisdom to his young fans.
While the internet was busy reviewing his latest work, Kendrick was having fun on the beach.
“I couldn’t even tell you what day it was,” he said. “I’m just in the moment. This is the strait of life, it’s all about an experience. And everyone had their own different experiences.”
In the four-minute clip, he also visited Ghana’s Liberty Skateboard Park, dedicated to Virgil Abloh, who participated in my development as an ambassador of Ghana.
While taking selfies with fans, the reclusive rapper opened up about Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers, calling it his “most available” project to date.
One of his favorite lines on the album is in “Father Time,” where a female voice says, “You really need some therapy,” to which he replies, “he doesn’t need therapy.”
Kendrick explains that changing the state of mind is a struggle. “That’s how Ni**as feels. We grew up in a place where our parents didn’t know that,” Kendrick said.You live and you experience this nonsense that you’re going through and you deal with it in the moment and there, or you never deal with it.”
But he managed to overcome the challenge. “Damn, this is like a whole new step in a whole new generation. That’s growth.”
