“The Heart Part 5” by Kendrick Lamar Uses Deepfakes of OJ, Kanye, Will Smith
A new Kendrick Lamar song is out. “The Heart Part 5” Mr. Aside from OJ Simpson, Will Smith, Jussie Smollett, Kobe Bryant, Kanye West and Nipsey Hussle, the rapper’s face changes in the video directed by Dave Free and Lamar. He regularly talks about bipolar disease when he’s West and murder when he’s Nipsey Hussle. It starts with an Oklama quote: “I am. All of us.” See it below.
Beach Noise, consisting of Matt Schaeffer, Johnny Kosich, and Jake Kosich, produced the song. Kyle Miller and Bekon both play instruments in “Part 5”. It sounds like Marvin Gaye’s “I Want You.”
The deepfake work was ascribed to Deep Voodoo, the firm owned by South Park founders Trey Parker and Matt Stone. Stone and Parker get a “special thanks” as well. Earlier this year, Lamar was said to be producing a new live action comedy with the team.
Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers was revealed in April through Twitter. The album is out May 13th on TDE. L’Oklama site debuted with an article on Lamar’s old label in August of 2017. God bless Top Dawg for being a platform for honest creators. He wrote, “As I continue to follow my life’s calling.” “Completion is lovely. And trust in the unknown.” He teased the album with a snapshot of two CDs and a book.
