Amazon Music will stream Kendrick Lamar's Paris stop on the Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers tour this Saturday, October 22 at 2 p.m. EST. You can watch the show live on Amazon Prime or on Twitch. The performance could be a special one: October 22 will mark the 10-year anniversary of Lamar's debut album good kid, m.A.A.d city.
Tim Hinshaw, head of R&B and hip-hop for Amazon Music, said in a press statement: “As a kid from the west side of Compton, hearing good kid, m.A.A.d city for the first time and seeing Kendrick’s journey from neighborhood hero to global superstar ignited a fire in me that I’m forever grateful for. It showed me that no matter where you start in life, hard work and dedication will put you where you hope and dream to be.
"Now, 10 years later, it’s almost poetic that two kids from the same city with similar, but different dreams have landed in Paris to celebrate not just that record but Kendrick's latest revolutionary album, Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers. We’re honored to sponsor this tour and bring this show to fans around the world.”
Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers, Lamar's fifth studio album, came out in May 2022 and debuted at No. 1 for the biggest debut this year at the time. This year, Lamar has headlined Glastonbury and cleaned up at the 2022 BET Hip-Hop Awards.
