Childish Gambino or Donald Glover, is a pretty consistent rapper. His transition from comedy makes humorous punchlines his comfort zone. Although the "Because the internet" album has good production, none of the instrumentals really stand out from other hip hop releases. His lyrics are political but trail off after nuance. The album is good but it isn't as melodic or complex as his earlier releases.
Defining Track
II. WORLDSTAR is a fairly out of character track for Gambino. The production is minimalistic and there is a jazz bridge at the end. The song is just a scattered mass of ideas.
Final Thoughts
The vibe of the album is very upbeat. Childish Gambino has a very odd outlook that complements his extremely odd persona in hip hop. The album is interesting, but there's no clear messages.
