Kendrick Lamar teaches good dogs to sit down, be humble


When Kendrick Lamar dropped “Humble” as the first single from his album DAMN., everyone stopped and paid attention. Especially these dogs, who felt like the greatest rapper of all time was speaking directly to them:


Bitch, be humble. Sit down.

These two videos were posted a day apart, leading some commenters to wonder whether Kendrick-loving dogs are becoming a new meme. Others accused the owners of faking the videos by giving their dogs hand commands offscreen.

Jennifer Kruse, the owner of the little dog in the cone, says all she did was hold up a treat. The humble doggo did the rest.

I think even Kendrick would agree that these are some top dawgs. Damn.
