Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers, Kendrick Lamar’s long-awaited new album, is getting rave reviews. As he goes into his vulnerabilities and vices, including sex addiction and betrayal, the album has proven to be one of his most intimate to date. In a song from his new album, Kendrick Lamar mentions his son by name.
One song even features the celebrity talking about his son, whom he has kept out of the spotlight until now. Kendrick contains certain lines in his song “Worldwide Steppers,” which appears in volume one of the double album. It appears his newborn son’s name is Enoch.
My son Enoch is the part two / When I perish, my children’ll construct higher valleys.
This news follows Kendrick’s remarks about his other child, “Playin’ ‘Baby Shark’ with my daughter / Watchin’ for sharks outside at the same time / Life as a protective father, I’d kill for her.” These words are spoken in the context of a song on the dangers of success, particularly in romantic relationships.
Kendrick begins by describing his encounters with white women, before zooming out to reflect on bigger cultural flaws that lead to objectification and immorality. Kodak Black introduces the track. Kendrick has a lot to say on a lot of things on his new album, including R. Kelly’s sexual abuse and Kyrie Irving’s anti-vaxx attitude.
Everyone is raving about the historic release, and we were just getting started talking about Kendrick’s new track, “The Heart Part 5,” which he dropped earlier this week. As if a Kendrick release wasn’t enough, the album also includes guest appearances from Summer Walker, Baby Keem, and Ghostface Killah. Listen to “Worldwide Steppers” by Kendrick Lamar below, and stream the complete album on Spotify or Apple Music.
