Kendrick Lamar's "HUMBLE." Is The Theme Song For 2017 NBA Playoffs

Kendrick Lamar's "HUMBLE." Is ABC's Theme Song For 2017 NBA Playoffs

After making the highest chart debut for a rap song in 7 years, Kendrick Lamar's "HUMBLE." will soundtrack the 2017 NBA Playoffs.

LeBron, a privileged listener, played snippets of Kendrick Lamar's new album, DAMN., via his Instagram story a day before the album's release. "Playoff vibe," LeBron captioned one of his posts. It turns out that we'll all be hearing plenty of that new Kendrick throughout the 2017 NBA Playoffs. ABC has selected "HUMBLE.," DAMN.'s lead single, to soundtrack the promotional video segment that will be frequently used during their (and ESPN's) postseason coverage. Watch the clip below. 

The Mike Will-produced "HUMBLE." triumphantly arrived two weeks before DAMN. The single was released with a thrilling music video, directed by Dave Meyers & The Little Homies. Kendrick hasn't yet chosen a second single from the 14-song album, which you can stream here

"HUMBLE." made its debut on Billboard's Hot 100 chart last Monday (April 10) by grabbing the No. 2 spot. It was the highest debut for a rap song in 7 years. Funnily enough, Kendrick's biggest single ever is a song called "HUMBLE." The new Hot 100 chart will be unveiled tomorrow.

Yo, that's awesome. I like how they used words that reflect the sport but are also like Kendrick's song titles.

We've seen the effect it had on Westbrook. He's petitioning to have it removed already I heard

Speaking of sleep, isn't it pass your bedtime lmao? You don't wanna be late for school in the morning. Momma must be tired of taking you to school everyday because of how must time you spend on here.

@Tyler the Creator- Cherry Bomb : your mom actually doesn't mind and offers to give me a ride in the morning (pun intended). Btw these are real nigga hours cuh. When it does reach my bedtime I'll make sure to bump that Kendrick Garbo tho.

@Deathstroke : You call this real nigga hours but the so called "real nigga" is acting like some childish middle school kid lol. Real niggas don't associate with your clown ass lmao. You're more like the Young Thug of this site.

I think I was the only one disappointed with this project. It wasn't bad it was just too trendy. Seems like he made this album for people who thought his last album was hard to get into. This album was for the average listener.

If you listen to the album from 14-1 it tells a different story, backwards he lives through rap, listen forward and he lives through fear.

Bitch please

Average listener you say?

Mone

@bconti : I'm aware. This is just my opinion. Pimp was a perfect album. Perfect 10. This right here was just a bunch of bangers. He had his moments lyrically that's why I can't say it's bad. It was just a tad underwhelming. Good album. Just wasn't as great and conceptual as his last.

If I kill a nigga it won't be the alcohol
