HUMBLE. - Kendrick Lamar



tempo: 75 bpm

bpm range: 70 bpm to 75 bpm75 bpm to 80 bpm

the DJ's Take: May not resonate like a Drake track off More Life (edit: yep; this part was a little off), but this club-friendly beat with a notable & distinctive vocalist should get heads nodding on a hiphop night.

On a side note, Kyrie Irving probably thinks the footage of Kendrick riding his bike in the video is ridiculous.

And an interesting background piece from this NPR interview: apparently Mike WiLL Made-It intended the beat for Gucci Mane when he got out of jail. Didn't happen, Lamar heard it, and the rest is history.

If you're staying key-compatible, try mixing or mashing up with:

2U - David Guetta, Justin Bieber
Cry Me a River - Justin Timberlake
Believer - Major Lazer, Showtek
Everyday - A$AP Rocky ft. Rod Stewart
She Knows - NeYo
Whatcha Say - Jason Derulo
Ridin' - Chamillionaire
No Matter What - T.I.
