U Know What's Up - Donell Jones

tempo: 103 bpm

bpm range: 100 to 105 bpm

the DJ’s take: If you spin hiphop and R&B, this single has aged well and should still get your crowd moving. Make sure you get the version with Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopes from TLC. Should have an extended shelf life, especially in Northeast (e.g. NYC) venues, so make it a permanent part of your throwback playlist.

Some other key-compatible tracks to mix with:

If you're operating at 99-100 bpm:

Bitches N Marijuana - Chris Brown, Tyga & SchoolBoy Q

From 100 to 105:

I Ain't No Joke - Eric B & Rakim
Team - Lorde

And just above 105:

Calm Down - G-Eazy
