The Devil Is A Lie - Rick Ross ft. Jay-Z

Speed: 51.5 bpm

The DJ's Take: Didn't think much of this after the first listen, but after slipping on my headphones, I started to feel it more. You probably want to save this for a hiphop crowd or a mixtape, although the star power could make it more amenable for the masses. In any case, here's what's interesting to me - given the unconventionally slow bpm, you can pick up the pace and double-time into a pretty nice set of somewhat key-compatible tracks including Get Busy - Sean Paul, Get Low - Lil Jon, Hold Yuh - Gyptian, No Letting Go - Wayne Wonder, and This Is How We Do It - Montell Jordan.
