Kendrick Lamar is celebrating his first album release in over 5 years by playing street soccer with the locals over in Ghana.
Kendrick’s been hanging out in the West African nation since dropping his latest hit album, “Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers,” last week … and new video shows him playing a little soccer in a street setting.

The game’s being played on what appears to be a concrete surface inside an abandoned structure, complete with murals on the walls, including one of another famous rap artist, Tupac Shakur.
Kendrick, in a yellow shirt and red shorts, obviously drew a crowd … and there’s a few cameras capturing his every move.
Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.
After the game, Kendrick posed for pictures with his teammates and competitors … who are known around those parts as the Jamestown Boys.
K. Dot is venturing out in public more recently due to his new music … we saw him at Dodger Stadium last month after announcing his album … and a street soccer game in Ghana is not a typical album release party.
‘Mr. Morale’ is the first Kendrick project in over 5 years, and it’s topping the charts with lyrics about trans family members, Kyrie Irving‘s COVID drama and a music video where his face morphs between Will Smith, Kanye West, Jussie Smollett, Nipsey Hussle and O.J. Simpson.
