“HUMBLE.” Kendrick Lamar

Kendrick Lamar

“HUMBLE.” Track Review

Top Dawg

Released March 24, 2017

Genre: Rap, Hip Hop


Kendrick Lamar doesn’t hesitate to almost immediately release another hard-hitting and unabashed insta-hit. “HUMBLE.” is an ironic and certainly not humble, minimalistic – but driving – cut that’s definitely ready for radio and backpackers alike. The beat is not as colorful as Kendrick’s wordplay (“parmesan where my accountant lives” was one of my personal favorite one-liners) but it’s repetitive enough for the airwaves. Kendrick tackles everything from wealth to body positivity. Kendrick is fully aware of how good he is at rapping and isn’t afraid to flaunt it. It’s braggadocio done right, because it doesn’t JUST focus on his newfound wealth. This track will definitely make sense in the grander vision of whatever project comes next, though.
