“Humble” by Kendrick Lamar

Kendrick-Lamar-bw-march-2016-billboard-650Humility has its own virtue, at least according to rap prodigy Kendrick Lamar’s new single “Humble”. His audacious retelling of his own narrative from his austere beginnings to his meteoric rise puts his contemporaries in pale comparison.

Fresh from his “The Heart Part 4”, Lamar is once again gruffly spitting world-conquering boasts atop a high-slung blend of bouncy rhythm and soured piano making him bend hip-hop and set new musical bar to those who come after him.

“Humble” is self-predicting with apocalyptic line like “So damn great, motherfucker, I’ve died / What you hearing now is a paranormal vibe” complete with visual settings to ensure his enduring presence and supremacy.
