Childish Gambino, the rap alter-ego of Community’s Donald Glover, seems to be working overtime to make me take him seriously lately, an effort that includes collabs with great rappers like Schoolboy Q and Heems. And now he’s taken a different tack: A new track called “Silk Pillow” that features Beck. And not just any Beck: The surreal stream-of-consciousness half-rapping Beck of the Mellow Gold days. Download the track below.
So, so nice to have rapping Beck back, if only for a moment.
