Skateboard P produced the song, which has already emerged as a fan favourite.
Kendrick Lamar’s Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers was one of the most highly anticipated projects of the year, and now that it’s here, the reactions continue to pour in. A recent one that’s caught Instagram’s attention comes from Pharrell Williams, who produced “Mr. Morale,” and was clearly very hyped about his latest collaboration with K-Dot.
“This is how it felt to make ‘Mr. Morale’ with @kendricklamar and @tanna.duh. MR. MORALE & THE BIG STEPPERS out now,” the legendary producer captioned a video montage of him blasting the song.

“I’m baaaaack,” the 49-year-old can be heard saying near the beginning of the clip. Next, he marvels at some of his friend’s lyrics, “I must’ve had 3000 lives and 3000 wives — are y’all listening to the shit this muthaf*cka’s saying?” Pharrell asked the camera.
Friends like Busta Rhymes, Big Sean, Justin Timberlake, Timbaland, and Snoh Aalegra all dropped by the comment section to show Skateboard P and Lamar some love.
If you’re a fan of Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers, you’ll be happy to know that the father of two announced hours after his project’s arrival that he’ll be headed out on a worldwide tour this July, kicking off in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and rounding out in New Zealand this December.
