who is this lame fuck really, this review is on some bs, i just started fucking with cg(a homey put me on to it) and it's different, and why is it that black males are the only ones' monolitically brushed as hood niggas, i feel what donald is saying, i love being "black" but sometimes i am the outsider because my interest and travels have made me different and alot of "black" people are scared of travel or different things, it's sad but true and who isn't emotionally driven. I always felt that music i a self reflection of ones' self and if it does reach at least one person that feels the same then u accomplished omething. I guess if he would say nigaa,bitch,hoe,slut through the whole album then he would be cool with the album.This is why common, the roots, mos def, etc don't get enough play becaue they are wordlly and they stay trying to feed us that bullshit soulja boy, crying ass drake.I hate guys that try to over analyze shit and say they want something different, get omething different and then shit on it because it's different.smh

Before I watched the review, I knew he would disapprove of the subject matter just because it's used heavily throughout the album. I honestly don't have a problem with it because, just like some of you posted, I can relate to what he's rapping about. Donald has constantly said his music is for a niche demographic of nerdy, outcast-ed black youth to uplift them. In knowing this, it's kind of retarded to hate on him for rapping about it on the majority of his songs. It really defines who he is, or at least who he used to be. I never hear people complain "Waka raps about too much street shit," because that is who Waka is--he's street. You know and expect street shit from him. Donald is the anomaly, the anti-stereotype, you have to know his music will reflect that. And that music is supposed to be a reflection of the artists' thoughts and feelings. He already admitted CG can rap, and he didn't have a problem with the beats, and he already said he listened to his other shit--so I just don't understand it.

My only beef with his subject matter is just because it contrasts themes of most mainstream rap, it doesn't necessarily mean it's better. Braggadocios raps about watching Archer and making obscure pop culture references isn't anything THAT revolutionary. As a black guy that has dealt with a lot of the issues he talks about on the album, I feel like he gives off a false sense of superiority over other blacks just because he has nonsterotypical tastes. KanYe is example of someone who I think deals with themes of not fitting in with societal norms better than DG. The nerdy black guy stichk is a bit played. IMO. I do think he IS a very decent rapper and his production is incredibly underrated. First time I heard that Bonfire beat I was floored.

Fuck your plug come shop w/ me.

Nov 14, 2011 @ 21:25
He goes back and forth between being a victim and feeling superior although I don't think he's trying to say he's better. He's just saying he's proud of who he is and showing other people going through the same thing it's ok to be different.

He's gonna be on kiis fm in la tonight at 9pm. Apparently they were giving away in studio passes but I think they did it last night. The tweet said they were available at 8:35 but it was posted 15 hours ago.

He co-produces all his tracks with Ludwig Goransson who has been with him at least since Culdesac. As far as the review, I don't agree with everything said but he has some points. The only real issue I have with CG's music is some of the punchlines are cringe worthy. Other than that I thought the album was pretty good front to back.
Nov 19, 2011 @ 23:27
album is fuckin tight. am i the only one that though the ending monologue was written perfectly, and was just overall great?

Standup was very unfunny. I just dont like this nigga at all.

Nov 20, 2011 @ 19:34
I didn't like the stand up either. His music is great and I feel like if he told those stories musically they'd be funny.
Nov 20, 2011 @ 19:59
yeah the standup was surprisingly not really that great. only laughed like twice. and i found it weird that his voice was more annoying to me in his standup than in his songs. but i still love the guy. this album is bumpin in my car.

Yo I just want to say fuck Childish Gambino. Like, as an intelligent middle class black dude with educated parents who grew up in the suburbs, fuck Childish Gambino. He's such a perfect example of a fucking nerd who just succumbed to the whole Urkel routine and became a corny stereotype. I swear to god, I saw this douchebag prancing around the stage at Rock the Bells (the WU TANG STAGE at that) and his whole style is basically just like Lil' Wayne's gay hipster little brother. Sure, he has the ability to rap but that's really not saying much, and his whole faggoty-punchline style about how much he loses at life is just a reminder why he's a clown first and a rapper second.

All I do is smoke weed and listen to MF DOOM innercitykidsmusic.com

Nov 20, 2011 @ 21:26
His partner Ludwig deserves some credit too...he's a genius
Nov 20, 2011 @ 22:30
was the standup really that bad? i usually like his comedy.
and i dont get how so many shit on gambino for his subject matter or that he just says he was called white and made fun of in every song but then say rappers are tight when they just brag about how rich they are in every song -_____- he has really bad punchlines at times true but has great ones at other times and overall makes dope music i dont see where the hate comes from Camp is one of the best hip hop/rap albums to drop this year

Nov 20, 2011 @ 22:38
The comedy special wasn't too good. It wasn't horrible but not anything to die laughing over.

This. I feel like Childish Gambino is rapping stuff for people like me, (Middle class black youth from the Burbs). His standup was pretty underwhelming though, I was pretty bummed
