Kendrick Lamar & Tanna Leone Team Up For Pharrell-Produced Track, “Mr. Morale”
Which new Kung Fu Kenny joint is your favourite?
Over the three-and-a-half-minute-long tune, listeners hear the father of two reflect on generational trauma and living life in excess, citing both R. Kelly and Oprah Winfrey as two famous faces that have been in close proximity to abuse throughout their own lives.
The album’s sixteenth track closes with a poignant quote from German writer and philosopher Eckhart Tolle, who reminds us, “People get taken over by this pain-body / Because this energy field that almost has a life of its own / It needs to, periodically, feed on more unhappiness.”
Other Lamar tracks that we’ve spotlighted this weekend include “We Cry Together” featuring Taylour Paige, “Silent Hill” with Kodak Black, and “Purple Hearts” featuring both Summer Walker and Ghostface Killah.

Enoch, your father’s just detoxed, my callin’ is right on time
Transformation, I must had a thousand lives
And like three thousand wives
You should know that I’m slightly off
Fightin’ off demons that been outside
Better known as myself, I’m a demigod
Every thought is creative, sometimes I’m afraid of my open mind
