The majority of Lamar's third verse on "The Heart Part 5" is a tribute to Hussle, his entrepreneurial spirit, and his legacy as a community leader. From one West Coast icon to another, Lamar changes in and out of Hussle's deepfake for the remainder of his music video to address the late rapper's killer, leave messages to his fans and family, and express what he meant to the world.
"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," he raps. "To my friends, make sure you countin' them blessings / To my fans, make sure you make them investments / And to the killer that sped up my demise / I forgive you, just know your soul's in question / I seen the pain in your pupil when that trigger had squeezed / And though you did me gruesome, I was surely relieved / I completed my mission, wasn't ready to leave / But fulfilled my days, my Creator was pleased."
He adds: "I can't stress how I love y'all / I don't need to be in flesh just to hug y'all / The memories recollect just because y'all / Celebrate me with respect / The unity we protect is above all."
Lamar ends his verse with yet another touching message to Hussle's fans: "And I can't blame the hood the day that I was killed / Y'all had to see it, that's the only way to feel / And though my physical won't reap the benefits / The energy that carry on emits still / I want you."
