Why do we like this?

A week after surprising everyone with "The Heart Part 4" Kendrick Lamar has delivered another shot to the arm of hip-hop with the booming "Humble."

Sounding nothing like the material from his last major release, To Pimp A Butterfly, "Humble" features heavy 808s over a looping piano riff that's more inline with modern hip-hop soundscapes. 

Lamar spends the chorus telling the listener (or maybe a few certain rappers) to, "sit down, be humble," while also referencing Obama and Richard Pryor as well as continuing to boast about his talents as raps number one guy. 

The accompanying film clip is also spectacular, depicting many religious images, with Lamar dressed in robes during one scene and acting out the last supper in another. 

I'm sure there will be plenty of think pieces about what Lamar is representing in the film clip and the deeper meaning of his lyrics, but for now, just sit back and enjoy the best rapper in the game doing his thing.
