Just a day after Kendrick Lamar added a brand new guest verse to one of the biggest songs of the year, Future’s “Mask Off,” it seems like another superstar is gearing up to add his own signature spin to the highest-charting hit of Kung Fu Kenny’s career. Justin Bieber was in the house at the 1OAK nightclub in New York City on Tuesday night alongside the Chainsmokers, when out of nowhere the beat from Kendrick’s No. 1 single “Humble” dropped and the Biebs went HAM over the track with some fresh bars.
Luckily, someone happened to be filming while Justin was on stage and captured a small portion of the song for posterity. In what might come as an unexpected twist for some, rather than sing a hook or add a new melody, the Biebs is going at with some pretty intense rapping. He begins with the line, “Yeah I know my name is Justin, but justice is coming,” and takes off from there.
It’s unknown at this time what plans Justin has for his take on “Humble,” whether this was a sort of one-off thing or if he intends to put out an official version with Kendrick in the near-future. Either way, the results, as you can plainly hear are pretty enticing.
