Watch Kendrick Lamar visit Ghana in new Spotify mini-doc

@josephtaysom

Kendrick Lamar has visited Ghana for a new mini-documentary, in partnership with Spotify.

The short film was made around the time Kendrick released his new album, Mr. Morale and The Big Steppers. Footage from his journey had already gone viral on social media, including Lamar adorably playing the video game, FIFA, with Ghanian children.

In the video, Lamar is seen visiting Freedom Skatepark, which was partially funded by the late designer, Virgil Abloh. He’s also seen calling Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers his “most present” album, and touches on the record’s themes such as therapy.

Hip-Hop Hero’s review of the album reads: “Mr. Morale and The Big Steppers is an emotional listening experience. Over 18 tracks, and 75 minutes, you understand who the real Kendrick Lamar is and see the conscious rapper in a vivid new light.

“While eyebrows were raised by some when he was announced as a Glastonbury headliner, this album confirms his superhuman literary gift. Glasto Kenny deserves every ounce of praise he receives.”

This Sunday evening, Kendrick headlines the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury Festival alongside Paul McCartney and Billie Eilish, which is the biggest show of his career so far.
