Kendrick Lamar He is a man with many faces, including some very famous faces that he shows in his new music video… addressing the most iconic moments of the past few years.
Kuala Lumpur on Sunday dropped a song called ‘The Heart Part 5’ in which he talks about culture at lightning speed, traversing through different scenarios and employing celebrity nicknames to make his point – including will SmithAnd Kanye West And Juicy Smollett.
That’s right… the video shows Kendrick’s face changing of all these guys at various points in the song, using some fancy tech we suppose you could equate to a deep fake.
It also features Og Simpson Briefly while bringing in a “bulletproof Rover,” he is apparently referring to the Ford Bronco from the way back when. Next, he moves to Yi’s face as he mentions “bipolar friends,” and finally to Josie where he says “the streets have made me feel bad.”
Eventually, his face turns to woe as he sings this… “In the land where people hurt more people // F*** callin’ it Culture.” Of course, he’s addressing the Oscar slap there.
There are two more stars to turn into… the late copy print And Nipsey Hustle. Either way, he’s referring to death and thinking about the legacy he’s leaving behind… he’s praying that he’s worthy.
The Nipsey line privately says… Kendrick raps, “To my brother, to my children, I’m in heaven // to my mother, to my sister, I’m in heaven // to my father, to my wife, I’m serious, this is heaven”… He continued to say that he forgives the murderer Which is faster in its demise.
In this case, he appears to be singing like Nipsey… and talking to Nipsey’s alleged killer, Eric Holder. Lots of stuff to think of on this album – K.Dot’s new album comes out Friday.
