The Man - Ed Sheeran

Speed: 87.5 bpm

The DJ's Take: Any speculation Ed Sheeran was delving into hiphop ended right here. He's rapping, and that beat sounds like a blend of moody folk-country and mid to late 90s Mobb Deep. Wouldn't be a bad piece for an alternative-sounding mixtape. Try integrating with tracks like Aloe Blacc's single of the same name, Royals and Paper Planes.
