Kendrick Lamar dropped his new record last night. The highly anticipated “Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers” came along with some huge personal revelations. Kendrick Lamar had a line for Kyrie Irving in his latest song.
Everyone is aware of the situation involving Kyrie Irving and the COVID-19 vaccine at this point. Kyrie refused to take the vaccine and was unable to play any home games for the Brooklyn Nets during the New York City requirements. Fortunately for Kyrie, the mandates were finally lifted, allowing him to return to full-time basketball.
Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers, Kendrick Lamar’s latest album, was released last night, and it includes a clear reference to Kyrie Irving. Yes, on the song “Savior,” which features Baby Keem and Sam Dew, Kendrick opted to address Kyrie’s anti-vaccination sentiments.
Seen a Christian say the vaccine mark of the beast/Then he caught COVID and prayed to Pfizer for relief/Then I caught COVID and started to question Kyrie.
In the verse, Kendrick criticizes Christians who dubbed the vaccine the “mark of the beast” before changing their minds while they were hospitalized and on ventilators. Kendrick’s interrogation of the NBA star was prompted by this powerful critique.
Kyrie’s vaccine views have been quite divisive, thus Kendrick’s views will undoubtedly be received with opposition. Some may interpret this as pandering, while others may interpret it as an unwarranted dig at someone who was only expressing their viewpoint and exercising their right to bodily autonomy. Check out the official audio below.
