How Do U Want It - Tupac ft. KCi & JoJo

tempo: 93 bpm

bpm range: 90 to 95 bpm

the DJ’s take: So apparently Tupac and Madonna dated back in the day? I have no comment on the breakup letter. Just wish that my old correspondence could sell for six figures.

Anyway, true story: every time I hear this beat, I make a face like Jay-Z when he hears the beat for Dirt Off Your Shoulder in Fade to Black. It’s that smooth and soulful. Mix in the over-the-top vocals of KCi and JoJo from 90s R&B group Jodeci and you’ve got a classic. Not for everyone, but rap fans will appreciate your knowledge when you drop this.

Try mixing with:

X Gon' Give It To Ya - DMX
Baby - Brandy
