Kendrick Lamar Accused Of Copying “The Heart Part 5” By AK

Kendrick Lamar accused of taking the premise for his new music video, “The Heart Part 5,” from New Jersey rapper AK’s 2020 song, “Family Tree.” However both videos feature the singer rapping in front of the camera as their face transforms into various superstars.

Cole, Nas, Lil Wayne, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, JAY-Z, and even Kendrick Lamar all appear in AK’s video. The video uploaded to YouTube in September 2020 has received over 600,000 views.

“Kendrick Lamar’s new music video is an exact copy of my video from 2020 of my song ‘Family Tree,’” In a video on social media, AK stated.

He added: “Maybe I’m fooling myself for thinking that Kendrick saw my video and was like, ‘Damn, that’s so good that I want to do it myself.’ But I was under Universal; he is under Universal. I did that video in 2020 with Universal. Obviously, the song didn’t do as good as if Kendrick was to do it, but the concept was so sick and I fucking don’t know, but it’s the same exact thing — it’s a backdrop, it’s him in front of it, it’s one take.”

On Sunday night, Lamar released the video for “The Heart Part 5.” Which he and his pgLang co-founder Dave Free directed. However, Lamar transforms into Kanye West, Nipsey Hussle, Will Smith, Kobe Bryant, OJ Simpson, and Jussie Smollett on the single.

Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers, Lamar’s long-awaited fifth studio album, will be out in few days. However, the anticipated double album is set to drop on Friday, May 13.
