After listening to Chance The Rapper's Acid Rap yesterday, I was left feeling a sense of deja vu which took me back to my first time hearing Kendrick Lamar's Section 80. As someone who was a fan of Kendrick's previous works, I could tell the second it started that this project would change everything. If past experiences teach me anything, it's that Chance The Rapper is set for the same fate.
Acid Rap is better than most albums hitting stores today, thanks to Chance's ability to lace his melodic flows with strong lyrics and the cohesive yet unique sound courtesy of Peter Cottontale and Stefan Ponce. Proof that Chicago hip hop is not confined to one sound, stream and download Acid Rap below, which features BJ The Chicago Kid, Twista, Action Bronson, Childish Gambino and more.

Childish Gambino's track "Sour Face" featuring Jay Rock didn't quite make the cut for Royalty, but it's definitely worth a listen. DG's worked with all of Black Hippy now, so is it safe to say he's honorary TDE?

I was just giving Childish Gambino props for the features he's grabbed for his upcoming release, but this one definitely steals the show. He joins forces with accomplished musician Beck (who raps on this one) on "Silk Pillow," which turns up the anticipation even more for his currently untitled project.

Childish Gambino has been really smart with the features on his upcoming mixtape, and he lets loose of another gem on the Nipsey Hussle featured "Black Faces."

Childish Gambino took to Twitter for a "rant" of sorts today, in which he vented about a lot of misconceptions the public has about him and his music. I say this track "We Ain't Them" speaks for itself, but if you feel the need to set the record straight, go for it Donald.
Download the track, which will land on his forthcoming mixtape, below, and hit the jump to watch his April performance debut of the track in L.A.!

Give me some new Flynt Flossy and Yung Humma, and I'm already listening. Add Childish Gambino and I'm definitely smanging this track. I'll disregard the whole "Fuck Your Blog" thing

Childish Gambino performed to a packed crowd over the weekend at Coachella as he rocked the stage, broke foot and all, for a forty three minute set. Check out Donald and his band's performance below, which includes cameo performances from Kendrick Lamar and Danny Brown, who assisted him on the remix to "You Know Me." Somebody should have really cut his mic off during their verses, though.

Your monday might be rough, but with a new Childish Gambino track floating around, today's not so bad. In usual fashion, "D Money" kills the punchlines and some of the references allude that the track was recorded yesterday. He definitely should have laid off with the Trayvon line though. Terrible call.

I thought Childish Gambino was waiting until Valentine's Day to release the full video for "Heartbeat," but after premiering a mysterious trailer yesterday he just let the whole cat out of the bag early. I don't want to ruin the video with a synopsis, so I'll just show you my reaction while watching. O_O
The unedited version is coming soon!
Camp is in stores now, and it's an AMAZING album, so make sure you go get it if you haven't yet!
