After typing up my post for “The Best Rap Album This Year,” I got to thinking about my current musical preferences. While everyone is talking about recent releases from Drake and Wale, I’ve been bumping the hell out of Childish Gambino‘s new album, Camp. While it’s common knowledge I’m the coolest motherfucker roaming the Earth, there was once a time when my mantle wasn’t as secure. With that being said, I identify with the whole “Black nerd” title. Gambino makes cool music about being uncool, and that’s quite alright with me.
Throughout the album, there are a lot of references to ethnic stereotypes, being corny and Asian girls. Lots and lots of Asian girls. While I do agree with some of my peers who believe he neglects the fact there are a lot of Black people similar to him, I still dig the music nonetheless. Anybody who can successfully reference Tron and Sufjan Stevens on the same album is cool with me. In any case, check out some of the gems below and BUY the album. I bought it son. Don’t you want to grow up to be just like me?
“Realest motherfucker in the game like Tron, nigga…”
