(GEMS RADIO) – The cover art of Kendrick Lamar’s upcoming album “Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers” is finally out. K.Dot tweeted the image art on Wednesday.

Kendrick and Family

The image featured Kendrick donning a crown of thorns while holding a child. Also in the photo is a woman on the bed nursing an infant. They are all in white tops, while the rapper is in khaki pants. It also appears that Kendrick has a gun tucked into his waistband.

Kendrick captioned “Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers.”

Expected To Dominate Billboard 200 Charts

Kendrick’s album is expected to arrive on Friday. The next project will follow his 2017’s album DAMN, which won a Pulitzer Prize. The album is expected to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, with at least 350,000 units sold upon its release.

DAMN debuted at the top spot with 603,000 units sold in the first week of release. It was the rapper’s third consecutive album at the top spot after 2015’s To Pimp a Butterfly and 2016’s Untitled Unmastered.

Kendrick’s Last For Top Dawg Entertainment

According to an announcement he made in August, the upcoming album will be Kendrick’s last for Top Dawg Entertainment

“I spend most of my days with fleeting thoughts,” he wrote. “Writing. Listening. And collecting old Beach cruisers. The morning rides keep me on a hill of silence. I go months without a phone. Love, loss, and grief have disturbed my comfort zone, but the glimmers of God speak through my music and family. While the world around me evolves, I reflect on what matters the most. The life in which my words will land next.

As I produce my final TDE album, I feel joy to have been a part of such a cultural imprint after 17 years. The Struggles. The Success. And most importantly, the Brotherhood. May the Most High continue to use Top Dawg as a vessel for candid creators. As I continue to pursue my life’s calling. There’s beauty in completion. And always faith in the unknown. Thank you for keeping me in your thoughts. I’ve prayed for you all. See you soon enough.”
