Famous - Kanye West

Speed: 87 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 80 bpm to 85 bpm, 85 bpm to 90 bpm

The DJ's Take: Good illustration of the saying 'less is more.' Simple, minimal beat with a heavier version of the drums from Good Morning and then a nice little breakdown into the Sister Nancy sample. If you spin with Spotify or Apple Music, I'd get this in the rotation asap, especially for a hiphop crowd. Try mixing with tracks like:

Back to Back - Drake, Izzo (H.O.V.A.) - Jay-Z
Energy - Drake
The Black The Berry - Kendrick Lamar
Black Widow - Iggy Azalea ft. Rita Ora
Empire State of Mind - Jay-Z ft. Alicia Keys
Rude Boy - Rihanna
Reaper - Sia
