Dot’s Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers arrived with 18 songs, including “The Heart Part 5.” Lamar collaborated with the likes of Kodak Black, Ghostface Killah, Summer Walker, Sampha, Thundercat, Baby Keem, as well as production partners such as Sounwave, Pharrell Williams, the Alchemist, Beach Noise, and Boi-1da for his final album on Top Dawg Entertainment.
