“The Heart Part 5” is the fifth installment of Kendrick Lamar’s “The Heart” series of tracks. It serves as a promotional single for Mr. Morale and the Big Steppers, Lamar’s fifth studio album, and is his first solo material since his 2017 album DAMN.
The track’s existence was first teased on April 19, 2022, when Lamar’s website, oklama.com, was updated with a page entitled “theheart.” This page linked to a large amount of draggable tan folders with one black folder, which was labeled “important,” being hidden within the mass of folders.
On May 7, 2022, the song was accidentally teased by Spotify through an updated description for the “This is Kendrick Lamar” playlist, but the description was quickly taken down minutes later.
On May 8, 2022, the song was officially released alongside the music video.
In the music video, Kendrick raps in front of a red wall and, using deepfake technology, makes several transformations into famous black figures such as Kanye West, Nipsey Hussle, Will Smith, Jussie Smollett, O.J. Simpson and Kobe Bryant.

    Kendrick using Nipsey’s cadence and mannerisms is a W. Literally embodied his spirit.

    You know your music is good when the fans are already trying to analyze and dissect the meaning within the first 10 hours of you dropping.

    Rap needs more unique artists like Kendrick Lamar… don’t be afraid to create your own style in music, because at first people will hate on you for being original. But then they’ll all wanna be your friend when they see your success ✊🏽💯

    • Sean Dafny says:

      @Dedas Almeida man that nigga be going. Shout out to Denzel Curry too and EARTHGANG.

    • C Mathews says:

      theforceeq, that’s not rap. What you’re talking about is a function of capitalism. Capitalism turns everything into familiar commodities and ultimately values quantity ($$$) over quality; low input (skill or quality) for high output ($$$).

    • Dedas Almeida says:

      @Sean Dafny you forgot Denzel Curry bruh

    • mishuOren says:

      Honestly if they could they would brotha. These “artist” today can’t create on their own so it’s always repeated. Either because the labels they signed to won’t let them or because they don’t have the talent of creativity

    • Abdullah says:

      Kendrick is not unique tho, he is a combination of andree3000 and lil Wayne

  5. Mr.Wobbles says:

    Genuinely feel like this album is gonna be one of the best things ever released in the history of music

    “Take the drums out”
    When you understand that the drums are the heartbeat that gives life to any song, you’ll understand why Kendrick removed the drums on that last verse.. Then rapped as Kobe and Nipsey’s spirit. 🤯🫣.

  7. TheAddMeister says:

    I am happy for Kendrick. Cannot wait for the album.

    • Isabelixne says:

      The legend of Semox-JK.Monster snowquen’s is my idol. Hes the person I aspire to be, hes my light of day.

  8. M dot A says:

    Another point of note. Starting the second verse with the Jay Z izzo reference and transitioning into the OJ comparisons, was interesting on another level because Jay Z made The Story of OJ where he talks about the vices of “the culture” among other things such as never being truly seen for more than skin color regardless of success.

  9. stan furber says:

    Breaking this down so astutely in such a short period of time Is sensational work in itself, well done

  10. I. R. says:

    He speaking of the state of the Black Community. And how the “culture” is both its best friend , lover, and worst enemy. He speaks of mental and spiritual illness. How it effects the “culture” and how greed, unemployment, riches, lies, superimposing information and hidden truth is made to keep us disillusioned.
