From Compton to Ghana. Kendrick Lamar, who has just released his new album Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers, travels to Accra, Ghana for the first time. His journey was documented as part of a mini-documentary for Spotify.
In the first 15-second trailer, he meets his young fans and hits the beach. He was having such a good time that he forgot what day it was.
“I can’t even tell you what day it is,” says Kendrick, whose song “We Cry Together” is the soundtrack to the music video. “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.”

The documentary is released next week. Kendrick will also perform as part of Spotify’s Cannes Lions Festival program on June 20.
Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers debuted at No. 1 after its release last month. Kendrick made a short film for “We Cry Together”, one of the standout tracks, with Taylour Paige, who played a limited time at the Laemmle Theatre in Los Angeles.
Starting July 19, “The Big Steppers Tour,” which kicks off in Oklahoma City, will also bring its live show to the four corners of the world.

AD Talked About Kendrick Lamar
On Saturday, May 28, AD attended a studio session in Compton. He said Kendrick Lamar did not send him a friendly greeting due to a case of mistaken identity.
“You want to know a crazy thing about Kendrick [Lamar], bro?” AD started off. “My first encounter with him he thought I was somebody else. He lowkey tried to press me.”
“I guess some n-ggas jumped him back in the day,” he added. “And I came to the studio and he was mad. He was like, ‘You from Almond block?’ And I was like, ‘Nahh.’ Almond Block is another hood in Compton. He was like, ‘You is from Almond Block’ and I was like, ‘Nah I’m over here,’ and we were cool after that. But he was mad like, if I was from Almond Block, he would’ve got his get back on me that day.”
