Since the release of his debut album, "good kid, m.A.A.d city," in 2012, Lamar has enjoyed enormous critical and popular success. He has amassed 14 Grammy victories and, for his 2017 album "DAMN," became the first non-classical, non-jazz musician to receive a Pulitzer Prize. Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers, Lamar's most recent album, was released in May 2022 to positive reviews.
One of Kendrick Lamar's go-to producers claims he is already hard at work on his sixth studio album. According to Sounwave, who produced 13 of the 16 tracks on Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers, work has already begun on K. Dot's follow-up album. Although Kendrick's most recent album was released less than three months ago, Sounwave claims that since 2009, they have always moved directly on to the following project.
Sounwave released a statement on working with Kendrick.
"We can't skip a beat. We have to just keep it going. There's no breaks. There's no such thing as a vacation when you're doing what you love. Everything you do is what you love to do, so you're excited."
Kendrick Lamar's The Big Steppers Tour has gained a ton of attention because of the unique performances and fan support.
A security guard at one of Kendrick Lamar's shows cried backstage. That brought back memories for Lamar, who spoke about a troubling time he experienced.
"It brought me back to when the song first came out. I was going through a tumultuous time in my life at that point," Sanford continued. "The words, the crowd around me, everyone was screaming and reaching for Kendrick and crying and I kind of like absorbed everybody's emotions. I was trying my best to hold it together and I just cracked."
Fans can still catch Kendrick Lamar's show at Barclays in Brooklyn, New York, happening on August 6th. There are still tickets for the show, and showtime starts at 7:30 pm.
