Kendrick Lamar’s new album – Mr Morale and The Big Steppers
…should act as a starting point for those wanting to appreciate young people-their state.And the state of the world around them.The fact that ‘you’ don’t know who Kendrick Lamar is or ‘like that rap music’ shouldn’t prevent you from investigating-sincerely.Pay attention to tracks such as ‘N95’ in which Kendrick shares a critical vision of the times we live in-read the lyrics and watch the film clip and the closer ‘Mirror’ which acts as exactly that.What might you see?What might you remember about your youth when reflecting?
In order for young people to move forward,
sometimes ‘we’ need to step backwards.Music allows us to make that step.Great storytellers like Kendrick Lamar can guide ‘us’ towards common ground and understanding.
Hello, new world, all the boys and girls
I got some true stories to tell
You’re back outside, but they still lied.
