Now that rapper Kendrick Lamar stunned fans with his surprise new song release “The Heart Part 5,” fans and celebrities alike are responding to the track and the accompanying video. Lauren London is among the many to react to the new release that honors her late longtime partner and rapper Nipsey Hussle.
In “The Heart Part 5” Lamar’s face morphs into the faces of Nip, Kanye West, Kobe Bryant, Will Smith, Jussie Smollett, and O.J. Simpson as each verse illustrates the life attached to the Hollywood figure he has transformed into.
“I wake up that morning with more heart to give you,” Lamar is heard saying. “As I bleed through the speakers, feel my presence. To my brother, to my kids, I’m in Heaven. To my mother, to my sis, I’m in Heaven. To my father, to my wife, I am serious; this is Heaven. To my friends, make sure you countin’ them blessings. To my fans, make sure you make them investments.”
London headed to her Instagram Story to give the video her stamp of approval, describing it as “Powerful art,” Billboard reports.
On Mar. 31, 2019, Hussle died after he was shot outside of his Marathon Clothing store in Los Angeles, on the corner of Crenshaw Boulevard and Slauson Avenue. He was 33.
Lamar is set to drop his forthcoming fifth studio album, Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers, on Friday (May 13). “The Heart Part 5” will appear as a part of the tracklist.
