A fan called Kendrick Lamar ‘retired.’ He fired back with  an album announcement 

Rapper Kendrick Lamar revealed the title and release date of his next album  

on Monday after a fan jokingly accused him of quitting music. 

In response to a February tweet from @raptalksk that deemed Lamar “officially retired,” 

the Grammy winner posted a link to his website announcing his first solo record in five years. 

Lamar’s fifth studio album, “Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers,” is set to arrive on  May 13. 

After a long Lamar drought, the rapper’s loyal fans are excited about the  news especially @raptalksk 

who has already taken credit for bringing Lamar “out of retirement” and baited his next target, tweeting, “Frank Ocean is officially retired.” 

“NO WAY KENDRICK LAMAR ANNOUNCED HIS ALBUM USING MY TWEET WTFFFF,” the self-professed hip-hop and music enthusiast wrote 

It’s been half a decade since Lamar released his last solo studio effort, “Damn.,” which collected five Grammy Awards, including rap song and rap album.  

The acclaimed collection was also nominated for album of the year, while the hit single “Humble.” competed for record of the year.
