Mercy - Kanye West

Speed: 70 bpm

The DJ's Take: For the first time in the history of Beat Match City, I am going to live blog as I listen to this song for the first time. So as Slick Rick once said, Heeeeerre we go.

0:00 - 3:00: Eyelids getting heavy... one of the more boring, lazy beats I've heard in awhile.

3:00 - 4:09: Starting to wake up... a menacing, pulsating buzz. It feels like the theme to Scarface. Does this interesting little buildup lead into the good part of the song?

4:10 - End: Nope. Falling back asleep...

Then again, in the context of a 70 bpm hiphop mix at a club full of people who know this song, it could be fire. Turn on key adjust and try mixing with something like Heart Attack.
