I did it, my timin' was perfect, I'm comin', they know it. Becomin' the last great American poet.With nothing but a link to his SoundCloud page posted on his Twitter handle last night, Childish Gambino graces fans with new music entitled "Candler Road." The song portrays his quirkiness as well as great synth work as he lays down his first track since the release of "Because the Internet." This may or may not be apart of the upcoming solo album that he plans on releasing before the end of the year but definitely leads to great anticipation for the fans. Take a listen below and let us know what you think of the track.
When "The Worst Guys" first dropped, C.G and Chance The Rapper fans went ballistic. Though we all loved the track, I feel its safe to say that everyone wanted to hear a verse from Chance in addition to his voice on the hook. In this live performance at the Governor's Ball in NYC, Chance finally drops a verse to his assisted track off Gambino's album, Because The Internet.. Apparently Chance did not have the verse completed in time for the albums release, but thankfully we now have the opportunity to hear it! Shortly after the performance, Gambino hit up twitter and revealed that the two artists are working on a collaborative EP. I know i'm dying to hear this project, let us know if you feel the same way.
Earlier last week, Childish Gambino treated Chicago Deep Web Tour fans to a nine minute freestyle session with partners in rhyme Chance the Rapper and Steve Glover. Chance is wildly impressive with his cheeky punch-lines, but Childish Gambino leads the pack showing longevity, energy and charisma. Backed by an explosive live band, Gambino ends the night with a soulful vocal solo. Childish Gambino’s Deep Web Tour makes its way to Toronto tonight- let us know if you’re going to check out Mr. Glover and company at the Sound Academy. In the mean time, take in this video as a preview of what to expect at Gambino's show tonight.
Gambino never planned on releasing the track “What Kind of Love,” a discarded single from his most recent album, "Because The Internet". On his soundcloud account, the rapper states, “I saw that someone is selling this on iTunes-I gave this away for free since it’s incomplete and a rough. Thought it was wack someone did that without my permission. So i put it up here". I for one, am glad Donald let this track loose-it's always interesting to hear what tracks didn't make the cut for an album. As far as throw-away tracks go,"What Kind Of Love" is a solid jam. Let us know if you think Donald should have left this one on the album.
After the much success of his second studio album Because The Internet, Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino is set to embark on the "Deep Web" tour.
