A week before Kendrick Lamar’sLamar’s latest project dropped, he released his latest single and music video for “The Heart Part 5,” leading the internet to buzz with enthusiastic remarks.
The rapper pays homage to Nipsey Hussle while also rapping from different points of view as he morphs into stars like Kanye West, OJ Simpson, Jussie Smollett, and Kobe Bryan while rapping in the first person.
“Part 5” includes contributions from Kyle Miller and Bekon and is produced by production and songwriting trio Beach Noise.

The deepfake work that fans are raving about was done in the studio operated by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone.
“As I bleed through the speakers feel my presence
To my brother, to my kids, I’m in Heaven
To my mother, to my sis, I’m in Heaven
To my father, to my wife, I am serious; this is Heaven
To my friends, make sure you countin’ them blessings. To my fans, make sure you make them investments.” Kendrick brings life into the video with his words.
