The story behind the crown.
After a five-year hiatus, Kendrick Lamar burst back into music with his album Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers. With popular commentary suggesting this is his most vulnerable and transparent album, K-Dot’s latest musical effort didn’t come without its fair share of hidden messages and deep meanings. At the top of that list was the cover art, most notably, the diamond-encrusted crown he’s been wearing since he announced the album. Looking to figure out the infatuation and reasoning behind the crown, Lamar and his team have dropped some breadcrumbs about it.
