With Because The Internet dropping on the 10th, anticipation is in the air. Childish Gambino already dropped a lyric video for his single, “3005,” featuring the incomparable Abella Anderson. Today, we get an official video for the anthemic single, featuring Glover at an amusement park, accompanied by a large stuffed bear. Watch after the break.
Childish Gambino and Gangsta Grillz don’t seem like no-brainer collaborative partners on paper, but bottom line up front: “Sober” is quality music. The newly released record plays more to Gambino’s pop side than hip-hop, but he’s more than versatile enough to make things work amidst jazzy, new age instrumentation. We even hear Mr. Glover delve . . .
As one of the smoothest, most melodically inclined emcees in the game, it should come as no surprise that Smino is well equipped to mesh with Terrace Martin’s jazzy acoustics on “Pecans.” The bouncy St. Louis native’s bouncy delivery is supplemented by horn, drums, and bass guitar that sound like they’re being performed live instead . . .
“I like to vibe different, I need me a girl that sees the entire vision.” Bugus has been consistently releasing one fire record per week for a minute now, and his latest drop, “House Lights,” lives up to the standard that he’s set. The Paul Maxwell-produced record features a soulful sample and lyrics that touch . . .
“They’re gonna do it, anyway.” N.E.R.D.‘s “Don’t Do It” has a light vibe to it, but it addresses some heavy topics related to being Black in America. The Kendrick Lamar-featuring single carries a rock edge to it, and has plenty of energy to match. Kendrick goes absolutely bananas on his verse, as you would expect. . . .
