Childish Gambino’s Performance Art
“So nerdy, but the flow wordy.”
It’s easy to hate on Childish Gambino, but dude is getting doper. Sure, his new album Because the Internet is part of a larger story based on a 76-page screenplay about Rick Ross’s future unborn son. It’s a dubious move, since concept albums are a slippery slope and best left to the Beatles.
But then he comes by Sway and drops this meta freestyle over Drake’s “Pound Cake.” Andy Kaufman would co-sign this schtick. Who has a conversation mid-rhyme?
This is deeper than rap.
