    The track “We Cry Together” comes from Lamar’s new album Mr. Morale and The Big Steppers. The album deals with themes of money, relationships, politics, and loyalty, to name a few. One of the more surprising tracks on the album “Mother I Sober”, presents a keen understanding of vulnerability and the effects of childhood trauma.

    While this nomination reveals a new era of Kendrick’s abilities, I don’t believe Lamar will abandon music. As an artist, Kendrick’s abilities remain unlimited. His Oscar nomination nods may further push the artist to new creative possibilities. While Kendrick is known for his lingering album drops, the artist pays keen attention to detail. These Oscar nomination nods are only the beginning of new creativity for Kendrick Lamar.
