Eminem says Kendrick Lamar’s new album left him “speechless”

Eminem listened to Kendrick Lamar’s fifth studio album, ‘Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers’, and shout out the rapper’s colossal effort.

Lamar has spoken out about Eminem’s influence on him as an artist. It’s something that can be heard in some of Lamar’s stronger vocal performances, such as the third verse on ‘Backstreet Freestyle’ from ‘Good Kid, MAAD City’ in 2012.

Back in 2016, in an interview with GQ, Lamar further explains how Eminem’s approach to language has shaped him. “I realized my clarity just learning Eminem when I was young. How I got in the studio was all just curious. I love music, but it’s curiosity,” Lamar told the publication.

“On the day I heard The Marshall Mathers LP, I thought, How does that work? What is the man doing? How did he put his words together like that? What is that tracking? An ad lib? What is that? And then, Why don’t you go into the studio and watch? So I do it.

“Then it became, How could his words cut through the rhythm like that? What is he doing that I’m not doing, now that I’m involved? His time is impeccable. When he wanted to fall to the beat, it was impeccable. These are things that, through experience and time, I have had to learn.”

‘Grandfather. Morale & The Big Step is an 18-track double album featuring Beth Gibbons of Portishead, Ghostface Killah, Sampha, Baby Keem and actress Taylor Paige.

In a five-star review, NME called ‘Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers’ is an “emotional, soulful autobiography” that “draws strokes of what it feels like to be a black person whose trauma still haunts them”.

“In dropping his soul into the mundane, he hopes we realize how we can be freed from the curses of our generation. This album is as much about struggle as it is about freedom, and it’s a beautiful sentiment. “

Lamar will bring ‘Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers’ on their world tour this year. The global run begins with the North American leg in July, continuing through August and September before heading to Europe and the UK in October and November. It will conclude in December with a series of races. days in Australia and New Zealand.
