I’m glad to see Empire Ants on here.
Check it out. Antidotes and Total Life Forever are seriously underrated albums.
I’m going too. Can’t wait!
Great week for TDE.
oh shit. sorry… forgot about that
Why do people have to pick which one they think is better? Most people I know that like Grizzly Bear like AC too. Different bands entirely even though a lot of their fans carry over to one another.
Man I hope this makes the album!
I only really started listening to him because I was a fan of derrick comedy and community so I didn’t mind the first few songs mostly because of this remix by Star Slinger:
But I lost all hope with Camp.
This however is pretty damn good. I admit the biggest reason I like it is because of the verses from Ab-Soul, Ghostface Killah, and the RZA but there are a few verses that I was Gambino is pretty nice on. He toned down his delivery and the puns. Not that I hated all the puns but they were a bit gimmicky in some songs.The production is on point for most of it too.
I think part of that is that his guests are so damn good in the first place. Ab-Soul coming in on Unnecessary is one of my favorite parts of the album.
I think some of the hate on Childish Gambino is a little overblown by “real” hip hop fans. Listening to this album without thinking about Camp and his other releases and honestly I see it as a great mixtape and not just because of his guests. Yet this whole conversation gets pretty stale because I’m enjoying it along with a whole lot of other stuff right now.
live steam of Jimmy Fallon. It just started but I think it’s worth waiting to see Frank Ocean with The Roots…
