Microphone Fiend - Eric B. & Rakim

tempo: 94 bpm

bpm range: 90 to 95 bpm

the dj's take: Song #3 in our eight is not enough mix (4:15):

Hard-hitting beat that feels very different from the source of the sample:

The polar opposite of today's mumble rap - you can understand every lyric, and it's tremendous. Deserves a long-term spot in the rotation if you spin old school hiphop.

Try mixing with:

In My Feelings - Drake
Nice For What - Drake
Love Me Like You Do - Ellie Goulding
Hurt You - The Weeknd
El Perdón - Nicky Jam, Enrique Iglesias
Closer - The Chainsmokers
Don't - Ed Sheeran
Ride Out - Kid Ink, Tyga, YG, Wale & Rich Homie Quan
