Kendrick Lamar shocked fans last night when he dropped his first single and music video 'The Heart Part 5' of his long awaited upcoming fifth studio album 'Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers'.
The five-minute track and video sees Lamar talk about the many hypocrisies, and dualities of the 'the culture' whilst sampling Marvin Gaye's "I Want You".
Originally, Kendrick teased the song back in April on his website Oklama.com, when he announced that he was dropping his final album on TDE, giving fans the chance to decipher several films.
Fans of the Compton rapper couldn't help but praise him for his comeback, not only calling him a genius but sharing their excitement for the new album that drops this Friday.
One user wrote: "Kendrick rapping from Nipsey’s perspective reflecting on his impact while reassuring his family he’s at peace is fucking beautiful..".
Another one commented: "The artistry in this is insane, This is a full generational journey kendrick executed the concept perfectly , this man is really in a league of his own".

Kendrick is just…otherworldly. It’s not about the video. Listen to the words. Listen to the flow. The artistry. No one is talking about the fact that that’s not a sample. Dre got into Marvin’s “I Want You” master. That’s remixed from the actual recording.— Cheo Hodari Coker (@cheo_coker) May 9, 2022
