Kendrick Lamar “HUMBLE.” Single Review

On “HUMBLE.” Kendrick Lamar challenges listeners and other rappers to pay attention and be humbled by his lyrics. The single was released with a music video directed by Dave Meyers and The Little Homies. It features religious imagery mixed with urban life, such as Kendrick in priest’s robes and a moving re-enactment of Leonardo Da Vinci’s painting The Last Supper—a juxtaposition with the concept of humility in the hook.

Everything Mainstream Consensus:

“Kendrick Lamar’s transition into rhythmic rap with HUMBLE. is packed with headbanging production by Mike WiLL Made-It and Lamar’s classic lyrical prowess.”

Everything Mainstream ranks music based on a mix of artistic, commercial, and fan appeal. When the cover art of a single/album is green, the single/album is positive, while yellow means mixed response and red symbolize a negative response.
