#TBT: I Ain’t No Joke - Eric B and Rakim



tempo: 105 bpm

bpm range: 100 to 105 bpm105 to 110 bpm

the DJ’s take: Legendary rapping + infectious James Brown sample = Classic. Not exactly a feature piece for a Top 40 night, but if it's a free-form set or an old school hiphop gig, this deserves a spot in the rotation. Some other key-compatible tracks worth mixing with:

Calm Down - G-Eazy
Team - Lorde
U Know What's Up - Donell Jones
