新世代饒舌界天王Kendrick Lamar共擁有7個格林美獎,單是上一張專輯《To Pimp a Butterfly》已為他帶來5個格林美獎座,去年推出的《untitled unmastered.》是他於錄製《To Pimp a Butterfly》時的demo,雖不是一張正規專輯仍然大受歡迎,奪得Billboard 200冠軍,2016年他被邀到白宮為美國獨立紀念日派對演唱,才華備受肯定!唱片銷量及演出收入為他帶來豐厚的財產,但他並沒有因此驕傲自滿,反然更努力創作,做個多產的歌手。最新大碟《DAMN.》已於各網上平台推出,得到46個國家iTunes及全球Spotify榜冠軍,單曲“HUMBLE.”由Kendrick Lamar及Mike WiLL Made-It (Beyonce、Jay Z、Rihanna) 操刀,暗示某些饒舌歌手囂張跋扈喜歡炫富。MV由Kendrick Lamar及執導過Lexus及Adidas廣告的Dave Meyers構思與拍攝,沒有名車美女,又表示討厭相片修圖,擺脫大眾對事業有成藝人的看法。Kendrick Lamar剛在Coachella音樂節上表演多首他的作品,喜歡中國文化的他穿上中國功夫裝束,當唱到“HUMBLE.”時背面的大銀幕也顯示歌詞的中文解釋「坐下 要謙虛」字句,台下的觀眾不乏名人,Rihanna及Lana Del Rey等都忘我起舞,是Coachella其中一個最觸目的演出。

Humble.

Nobody pray for me

Even a day for me

Way 

 

Ay, I remember syrup sandwiches and crime allowances

Finesse a with some counterfeits

But now I'm countin' this

Parmesan where my accountant lives

In fact, I'm downin' this

D'USSÉ with my boo bae, tastes like Kool-Aid for the analysts

Girl, I can buy yo' rest the world with my paystub

Ooh, that is good, won't you sit it on my taste bloods?

I get way too petty once you let me do the extras

Pull up on your block, then break it down: we playin' Tetris

A.M. to the P.M., P.M. to the A.M., funk

Piss out your per diem, you just gotta hate 'em, funk

If I quit your BM, I still ride Mercedes, funk

If I quit this season, I still be the greatest, funk

My left stroke just went viral

Right stroke put lil' baby in a spiral

Soprano C, we like to keep it on a high note

Its levels to it, you and I know, be humble

 

Sit down

Be humble

Sit down

Be humble

Sit down

 

Be humble 

Sit down

Be humble

Sit down

Be humble

Sit down

Be humble

Sit down

Be humble

Sit down

 

Who dat thinkin' that he frontin' on man, man?

Get the off my stage, I'm the Sandman 

Get the off my, that ain't right

I make a play blowing up your whole life

I'm so so sick and tired of the Photoshop

Show me somethin' natural rolling like afro on Richard Pryor

Show me somethin' natural go with some stretchmarks

Still will take you down right on your mama's couch in Polo socks, ay

This is way too crazy, ay, you do not amaze me, ay

I blew cool from AC, ay, Obama just paged me, ay

I don't fabricate it, ay, most of y'all be fakin', ay

I stay modest 'bout it, ay, she elaborate it, ay

This that Grey Poupon, that Evian, that TED Talk, ay

Watch my soul speak, you let the meds talk, ay

If I kill a, it won't be the alcohol, ay

I'm the realest after all, tell ’em be humble

 

Sit down

Be humble

Sit down

Be humble, tell ’em sit down

Be humble

Sit down

Be humble

Sit down

Be humble

Sit down

Be humble

Sit down

Be humble

Sit down
