I had no idea! So, Mike Will Made-It was behind the beat for Kendrick Lamar's "Humble." It tuns out that he actually made the beat for none other than, Gucci Mane.
In an interview with NPR, the famed producer spoke about having Guwop in mind when he created the beat. “With ‘HUMBLE.,’ I knew that beat was going to capture a moment,” Mike said. “It just felt real urgent. I made that beat [last year] when Gucci Mane was getting out of jail; I made it with him in mind. I was just thinking, damn, Gucci’s about to come home; it’s got to be something urgent that’s just going to take over the radio.”
However, Mike decided to give the beat to K. Dot because “it kind of has an N.W.A./Dr. Dre feel, an Eminem kind of feel.” Smart choice. The gritty feel is right in Lamar's lane. Yas! Yas! Yas! That's all I have to say!
The entire DAMN. album has been smash, ever since it dropped weeks ago. Billboard is now reporting that all 14 of the project's songs have landed on the Billboard Hot 100 charts!
Clap for Kung Fu Kenny.
