The Official Donald Glover/Childish Gambino Thread

Sep 18, 2011 @ 23:56
Saying not to compare an artist to another is stupid. If I was comparing him to Method Man or some shit it'd be dumb but CB and Drake have a lot in common so it's a valid comparison. Thanks.

I can't even listen to Culdesac anymore because every song has like 20+ plays. That shit cray smokeyface

How does drake and donald glover have "a lot in common"? Just curious lol. Are you saying this because drake and donald glover were both in TV shows?
Does drake also write for shows? Does drake do stand up? Is drake a comedian, actually drake is a comedian because his music is hilarious, got me there.

Gambino ain't worried bout the money haha, music is like his side chick .. he makes so much money off his TV/Comedy shit .. that's what makes him such a good artist. He's not forcing anything, and he's such a real dude .. Camp is guna be amazing and easily lowkey album of the year

I never said anything about money, profiting from something means more than your bank account. His gameplan reminds me of The Game, sit back, listen to the others and soak game, then make a successful style out of theirs.

I'm not saying he's bad, just don't see anything special in what he does.

I don't know about that Game comparison haha. CB borrows flows but his persona/subject matter are his own. The Game just raps about other people's lives. He's like a hip hop news reporter or something.
Sep 19, 2011 @ 01:19
Not comparing them in style or content, simply in their game plan for getting in the rap game, from how I see it.
Sep 19, 2011 @ 01:26
when i first listened to cb i thought he sounded kinda young money, in the worst way. even now i'm kinda conflicted about liking his music but i can't help it, idk if it's the ym thing or me watching community and thinking he's better at that
Sep 19, 2011 @ 01:29
Sure he has a ymish flow but his persona, content, and production are completely different. Also, he's more in line with the indie rock world than e is rap so there's that too.

camp gonna be fire doe

Waiting for Cdq Bonfire for two months now, lol

Can't wait for Camp. I think Gambino can blow up, like really.

lol hes a huge star pretty much already for his acting shit, this side rap/singing can put him to the next level stardom though

I've listened to culdesac many times bruh. Please don't compare artists to other artists, especially those two shitty dudes.

LOL you kiddin' me? It's there [in culdesac]. While not in abundance like his other joints:


AND WHEN I SAY WEIGHT, I~DOOOOO MEAN WEIGHT<-------straight from wayne's styrofoam cup. I still like the song, but let's not front. Outside of the hook, we know who's style this is. AND THE IRONY OF THE MOST LIKED COMMENT BEING 'CHILDISH GAMBINO>>>>WAYNE'. THE IRONY.

I see what alot of these CB fans say around the Internet and sweet christ you can tell that the ones that swear his bars are the shit are the fickle type and probably won't even be listening to rap in five/ten years, which makes it incredibly difficult to take him seriously.

Edit: Your avi's funny as shit.

I can see it in Poindexter, but not in Culdesac. Maybe I have a shitty ear? Who knows, I am a mother fucker.

Sep 19, 2011 @ 17:01
He said himself that on Sic Boi and Poindexter he was trying to fit an image,but when he started writing culdesac,he began to craft his own style,while trying to get rid of the image he portrayed on the previous two joints.

No one's saying you can't compare artists, obviously you are, but it's annoying when you come into a thread about X rapper and you see 3-4pgs about how they're like Y rapper.

Especially when it's always someone being compared to Lil' Wayne or Drake.
Sep 19, 2011 @ 20:40
Everyone will be compared to someone so there's no need to argue. Gambino is dope. Glad Bonfire finally dropped smokeyface. Can't wait for Camp.
