Jidenna's "Classic Man" should come with a disclaimer. From the up-tempo beat to the infectious hook, it's one of those rare songs that will be stuck in your head from the first listen, whether you're a fan of the sound or not. And earlier this week, Kendrick Lamarhopped on the official remix, which beefs up a single that's already smack-dab in the middle of Billboard's Hot 100

Complex News caught up with Jidenna to talk about the meteoric rise of "Classic Man," the song's relationship to social justice, and what it takes to be a "man of honor" in 2015. Check it out.
