Kendrick Lamar’s highly acclaimed album DAMN. has been the talk of the week, but specifically, his track “Humble.”
The track officially topped the Billboard Hot 100 this week, making it the rapper’s second No. 1 song on Hot 100. But while folks continue to rave about the hot track, a shocking revelation has hit the Web about Kung Fu Kenny’s hit.
According to Mike Will Made-It, the beat almost went to Gucci Mane. “I knew that beat was going to capture a moment. It just felt real urgent. I made that beat when Gucci Mane was getting out of jail; I made it with him in mind,” Mike said during an interview with NPR.
He continued, “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.”
But somewhere along the way, he sent it to Lamar, and K.Dot almost took a pass. “Then he told me that his team was saying he should keep it,” Mike said. “And I told him, ‘Bruh, you definitely should keep it, and you should use it as your single.’”
Sure, Gucci could have rocked to the beat, but we are thrilled Kendrick took the bait.
