The five-minute video sees him standing in front of a bloody-red backdrop as he poetically cites his verses over a sample beat of Marvin Gaye’s “I Want You.”

Directed by Dave Free, alongside Lamar, the Compton-bred rapper creatively pays homage to fellow culture giants OJ Simpson, Will Smith, Jussie Smollett, Kobe Bryant, Kanye West, and Nipsey Hussle by morphing into them throughout the controversial clip.

“As I get a little older, I realize life is perspective,” Lamar says in the song’s intro, later leading into lyrics that match Simpson, Smith, Smollett, Bryant, West, and Hussle’s life stories. “And my perspective may differ from yours.”

Following the premiere of “The Heart Part 5,” fans of Lamar’s have flooded the Twitter timelines with their thoughts and opinions on philosopher artistic re-emergence.
