The last time Kendrick Lamar and Jalen Ramsey were in the same public venue was for Super Bowl 56 — with Lamar helping rock the stage at halftime and Ramsey winning Super Bowl 56 for the Los Angeles Rams.

Now, almost three months after the Rams All-Pro and the Compton-based hip-hop artist entertained their respective audiences, both names are intertwined again.

But this time, talkative perennial pro bowler Ramsey went from acquiring Wide Receivers to offering his take on Grammy-winning Lamar’s latest work, which was released on the evening of May 12: his latest album, Mr. Morale and the big steppers.”

And the singer Ramsey didn’t just leave a review. He posted several mixed reactions online to the latest project by “K. Point.”

Much like the rest of the hip-hop fanbase, Ramsey had to wait five years before Lamar would release a studio album — as the 34-year-old’s last project was his Pulitzer Prize-winning Damn.

Definitely worth the wait for avid Lamar fan Ramsey. Not only did he send a tweet in reaction to the album, he had eight different social media posts reacting to Lamar’s latest critically acclaimed work.

At 9 p.m. PT on streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music, the album was officially released. Ramsey was ready to go:

It obviously didn’t take long for musical mastermind Lamar to catch Ramsey’s attention. The Rams cornerback’s next tweet indicated that he was already captivated by the album after halftime. It also prompted an affirmative response from his future Rams teammate, Bobby Wagner.

Ramsey then responded to a post by Jahaan Sweet, who revealed he was one of the producers of two personal favorite songs that grabbed Ramsey’s ears.

Eventually, Ramsey completed the 18-song album, which lasted over an hour. And what was Ramsey’s final assessment after the first listen?

“I finished the album, but I’m also going to listen to it again tomorrow,” Ramsey said said on his Twitter account. “PURE ART.”

But it turns out that Ramsey wasn’t done talking about “Mr. morale and the great steppers.” He quoted “silent Hill” with Kodak Black, “father time“featuring Sampha, the second track”N95‘ and ‘Count Me Out’ were among Ramsey’s personal favourites.

The Super Bowl on February 13 wasn’t the only time Lamar and the Rams were in the same close proximity.

Lamar made a surprise appearance at Irvine 2016 training camp – captured by the HBO cameras.

Lamar and longtime labelmate and Los Angeles hip-hop artist Schoolboy Q got a chance to visit the Rams in 2016 when the team was featured on the widely popular NFL show, featured in the first episode of this season.

Lamar and schoolboy Q, whose real name is Quincy Manley and is also well known for this Nike Tiger Woods commercial released on April 7thThey also got to show off their passing and receiving skills in front of the Rams.

Ramsey wasn’t the only one praising Lamar’s latest masterpiece.

Los Angeles Lakers’ LeBron James shared his excitement that Lamar announced his tour for the album.

NFL free agent defensive lineman and LA native Datone Jones was another to rave about the album, saying it didn’t have any songs worth skipping.

Actor and comedian Kevin Hart not only reacted to the album, but quoted a lyric by Lamar before telling him, “Rumble Young Man Rumble.”

And on Saturday, May 14th, Lamar’s album reached that milestone thanks to those listening…including Ramsey.
