Song Meaning and Background of Humble by Kendrick Lemar


Kendrick Lamar is ambiguously looking in the mirror and asking himself to get himself together in this hilariously swagger of a song.


He discredits his rivals and flaunts his newly rich status in the verses. He claims to be a lothario who pursues ladies elsewhere.


Lamar has two US Billboard Hot 100 number-one singles, with "Humble" being his second. At the 60th Annual Grammy Awards, the song was nominated for four categories—Record of the Year, Best Rap Performance, Best Rap Song, and Best Music Video—winning the final three.


Lyrics of Humble by Kendrick Lemar


Nobody pray for me, it been that day for me, way (yeah, yeah!)

 

Aye, I remember syrup sandwiches and crime allowances

Finesse a n’gga with some counterfeits

But now I'm counting this

Parmesan where my accountant lives in fact I'm downing this

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

Girl, I can buy your ass the world with my paystub

Ooh that pussy 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 playing 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

It's levels to it, you and I know, bitch be humble

 

(Hol' up bitch) sit down,

(Hol' up lil bitch, hol' up, lil bitch) be humble

(Hol' up bitch) sit down (sit down hol' up lil bitch)

Be humble (bitch)

(Hol' up, hol' up, hol' up, hol' up) bitch sit down

Lil bitch (hol' up lil bitch) be humble

(Hol' up bitch) sit down

(Hol' up, hol' up, hol' up, hol' up) be humble

(Hol' up, hol' up, hol' up, hol' up lil bitch) sit down

(Hol' up lil bitch) be humble

(Hol' up bitch) sit down (hol' up sit down lil bitch)

(Sit down lil bitch) be humble

(Hol' up, hol' up, hol' up, hol' up lil bitch) bitch, sit down

(Hol' up lil bitch) be humble

(Hol' up bitch) sit down

(Hol' up, hol' up, hol' up, hol' up)

 

Who that n’gga thinking that he fronting on man man (man man)

Get the f’ck off my stage, I'm the sandman (sandman)

Get the f’ck off my d’ck, that ain't right

I make a play f’cking up your whole life

I'm so f’cking sick and tired of the Photoshop

Show me something natural like afro on Richard Pryor

Show me something natural like ass with some stretch marks

Still I take you down right on your mamma's couch in polo socks, aye

This shit way too crazy, aye

You do not amaze me, aye

I blew cool from AC, aye

Obama just paged me, aye

I don't fabricate it, aye

Most of ya'll be faking, aye

I stay modest bout it, aye

She elaborate it, aye

This that Grey Poupon, that Evian, that Ted Talk, aye

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

If I kill a n’gga it won't be the alcohol, aye

I'm the realest n’gga after all, bitch be humble

 

(Hol' up bitch) sit down,

(Hol' up lil bitch, hol' up, lil bitch) be humble

(Hol' up bitch) sit down (sit down hol' up lil bitch)

Be humble (bitch)

(Hol' up, hol' up, hol' up, hol' up) bitch sit down

(Lil bitch) (hol' up lil bitch) be humble

(Hol' up bitch) sit down

(Hol' up, hol' up, hol' up, hol' up) be humble

(Hol' up, hol' up, hol' up, hol' up lil bitch) sit down

(Hol' up lil bitch) be humble

(Hol' up bitch) sit down (hol' up sit down lil bitch)

(Sit down lil bitch) be humble

(Hol' up, hol' up, hol' up, hol' up lil bitch) bitch, sit down

(Hol' up lil bitch) be humble

(Hol' up bitch) sit down

(Hol' up, hol' up, hol' up, hol' up)
