The Official Donald Glover/Childish Gambino Thread

Jun 07, 2012 @ 22:51
idk what if that's the only way any given rapper has to express themselves, like that's their tool, but they wanna use it for something other than what it was intended? like i listen to rap cos it's a part of what i grew up listening to, but through it (like finding out x sampled y) as well as hearing other music on the radio/tv/films i found other shit. i don't feel like i listen to rap for a reason as shrewd as "I wanna hear some street shit".

but maybe you've locked onto something i/other people don't realise we look for in music? like something intangible to the layman or w/e.

yeah I mean it's definitely not the kind of thing that's overtly discussed a lot and it's obvious that the powers that be are trying to phase out the whole "menace" aspect of hip-hop culture in general, but even with that being said I just feel like part of ANY artists job is to actually push boundaries and be what the common man is scared to be, ESPECIALLY rappers (since their art is so inherently isolated) and CG (as well as a lot of these hipster rappers nowadays) is just killing that whole vibe by evoking the dude that used to get bullied in school as opposed to... say, genuine confidence, not even to mention super cool meta-swag

not to hate on CG btw, thats just my (informed) opinion

All I do is smoke weed, blow lines, and listen to MF DOOM. And rap. http://www.facebook.com/SpacemanNYC

why can't it end with just, every rapper has the right to express themselves however the fuck the feel. if that's the shit he went through, what's wrong with rapping about it? he also raps about being ridiculously talented, having 5 jobs and fucking mad bitches, i never got a "common man" vibe from him. I will admit that after a while i even got tired of his life story but he still has enough hilarious lines to keep me into it and he's still making good music overall.

and you say shit like "ANY artists job is to actually push boundaries" and then get on the dude for not sounding like what YOU want him to sound like, which is just ridiculous. I expect more from you bruh.

lmao he can do whatever the fuck he wants, that's just my opinion. I'm not saying he shouldn't be where he's at or hating on his hustle, but for ME, as a hip-hop traditionalist, he just strikes me as corny

All I do is smoke weed, blow lines, and listen to MF DOOM. And rap. http://www.facebook.com/SpacemanNYC

You have to admit that he's getting better as an artist though
