Mike WiLL Made-It avslöjar att “HUMBLE.” var avsedd för en annan rappare: “I made it with him in mind….”


 

 

När Kendrick Lamar lanserade ny musik i slutet av mars var det föga förvånande att “The Heart Part IV” hade den ljudbild vi vant oss med från Compton-rapparen. När den första officiella singeln “HUMBLE.” släpptes höjde däremot många på ögonbrynen för den ljudbild och delivery Kendrick gav med Mike WiLL Made-It. Nu avslöjar producenten bakom låten vem som egentligen avsågs rappa på “HUMBLE.” – ingen mindre än Gucci Mane. I en intervju med NPR säger Mike WiLL Made-It:

 


“With “HUMBLE.,” I knew that beat was going to capture a moment. 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. And I felt like that beat was that. I ended up not doing it with Gucci and I let Kendrick hear it. I was thinking, if Dot gets on this it’ll be his first time being heard on some[thing] like this. At the same time, it kind of has an NWA/Dr. Dre feel, an Eminem kind of feel. So I thought, let me see if Dot f**** with it. And he heard the beat and he liked it. But he was about to give me “HUMBLE.” for [my album] Ransom 2. I love that song so I was like, ‘Man, hell yeah.’ Then he told me that his team was saying he should keep it. And I told him, ‘Bruh, you definitely should keep it, and you should use it as your single.”
