In a new photo that surfaced earlier this week, Pulitzer Prize winner Kendrick Lamar seems to be teasing his upcoming new release.

But, the photo suggests, not only is there a new album on the way, but it may be a double-disc with the addition of a book, too.
Check out the photo, which was shared by the social media page of Daily Rap Facts, which added: “Kendrick Lamar has teased 2 disks for his upcoming album ‘Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers’ The album is expected to sell 350k-400k first week”
Earlier last month, news of Lamar’s long-awaited album came to the attention of music fans.
The new LP, Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers, is set to drop on May 13.
Perhaps the greatest rapper of all time, Lamar shared the news via a post on his website—oklama.com—under the letterhead of his company, pgLang. Lamar had initially shared the news via a “quote tweet,” in response to a fan saying he’d retired.
The letterhead announcement reads:
From the desk of oklama
