Unreleased Kendrick Lamar songs have leaked online, appearing on Spotify in a playlist titled “Morale Pack.”
The user who uploaded the supposed leaks, Marozy, has also previously uploaded two apparent leaks from Kanye West titled “City in the Sky,” and “Mr. Miyagi,” which can still be found on the streaming platform.
The three new leaks from K. Dot are titled “Pure,” “Make Me Happy” and “Computer Love,” and appear to have been recorded during the making of his most recent album Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers, which arrived last year.
On “Make Me Happy” Kendrick recycles similar lines that appeared on the Mr. Morale track “Purple Hearts” including “Crown on Bob Marley, wrist on Yo Gotti,” while “Computer Love” finds the Compton native singing, “That pussy got a spell on me” over the beat from the 1986 Zapp song of the same name.
The “Morale Pack” leaks can be heard below:
Released on May 13, 2022, Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers ended the five-year wait for a new Kendrick Lamar album and was met with commercial and critical acclaim. The project — Kendrick’s final album on Top Dawg Entertainment — debuted at at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with 295,000 first-week units, the seventh largest sales week of last year.
It was recently crowned Spotify’s most popular rap album of 2022 after racking up a total of 1.4 billion streams on the platform. More accolades could follow for Kendrick’s fifth LP, which is up for Album of the Year and Best Rap Album at the 2023 Grammys next month.
K. Dot’s eight nominations also include Song of the Year, Record of the Year and Best Rap Song, all of which are for the Big Steppers bonus track “The Heart Part 5.”
Kendrick isn’t the only rapper to have experienced leaks in recent weeks. Young Nudy vowed to track down those responsible after a whopping 172 songs of his surfaced on the internet.
“I’ma say this shit one time, bro. I don’t know if y’all know, I’m not like other rappers, bro,” the Atlanta rapper warned in a video back in December. “I’m 100 percent finna take my time out to find out 100 percent who exactly is leaking my music. And I’m 100 percent gonna pull up at whatever studio it is and I’m 100 percent gon’ beat your ass, on my momma.”
