Much of the online music conversation over the next week or so will probably be about Kendrick Lamar's new Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers album.
One thing that's bound to be discussed is K Dot admitting to cheating on his longtime mate Whitney Alford. He rapped about it on the song “Mother I Sober," while also opening up about sex addiction.
“Intoxicated, there’s a lustful nature that I failed to mention / Insecurities that I project, sleepin’ with other women / Whitney’s hurt, the pure soul I know, I found her in the kitchen / Askin’ God, ‘Where did I lose myself? And can it be forgiven?'”
“Broke me down, she looked me in my eyes, ‘Is there an addiction?’ / I said ‘No,’ but this time I lied, I knew that I can’t fix it / Pure soul, even in her pain, know she cared for me / Gave me a number ... I made it home, seven years of tour, chasin’ manhood / But Whitney’s gone, by time you hear this song, she did all she could / All those women gave me superpowers, what I thought I lacked /I pray our children don’t inherit me and feelings I attract," spit the Compton rapper.
Kendrick also rapped about sleeping with a white woman on “Worldwide Steppers.” When doing so, he said he thought his ancestors were watching him.
Does any of this surprise you?
