Chilidsh Gambino aka Donald Glover out of nowhere just dropped the first single "Sober" from his upcoming Kauai Mixtape (artwork below). The rapper who has rose to one of the most exciting names in the every expanding hip-hop world never seems to dissappoint with this far out, extra trippy ballad. The light electronic grittiness and contrasting keys and light drums acts as a raw canvas that Gambino manages to light up with some singing that will have you humming along. It's a change of pace from what we can expect. Enjoy!

Childish Gambino just came out of nowhere to release the first song since his successful "Because The Internet" album last year. This new song "Candler Road" has an offbeat, yet overly fresh instrumental with some vintage sounding organs setting the tone for Gambino to deliver some relentless verses. We can hope this is the start of a stream of new content from Donald. Enjoy!

Childish Gambino drops off an intriguing official music video for the next single "Sweatpants" ft. Problem from his latest album Because The Internet. The visuals follow Gambino on a continuous path of Donald meeting up at a diner over and over while more copies of himself fill the frame.
The video displays how as his life becomes continuously more revolved around himself, he becomes growingly less interested and excited about it. He further confirms this idea in his blog post that launched the release stating: "you can’t understand something totally and enjoy it at the same time, i think." – Donald. View the blog post with video and tour dates here.
Gambino Outraged At Music Video Release: Instead of the video getting released along with the Deep Web Tour blog post exactly how he had planned, his label Glassnote Recordings went ahead and released it without his consent, leading to him firing off a tirade of Tweets going as far as telling other labels to "please buy me out". View the outraged tweets below after the jump.

Childish Gambino is getting closer and close to the much anticipated release of his latest album Because the Internet, and we get another amazing track from the project. ‘Sweatpants’ is a gritty hip-hop banger with a change of pace from Gambino. Spitting verse after verse and never letting up, Gambino shows a more serious side of his talents. We can expect quite a versatile project. Listen below:
It turns out this song is released as a free download when you pre-order the new album Because the Internet, yet that was not what Gambino has in mind, read his angered tweets. Someone from his label has apparently leaked the song with the pre-order to help push numbers against his wishes, classic major labels.
UPDATE: Donald is mad at the label, not blogs for sharing it now that’s it leaked. Here is his tweet.
Regardless of ‘Sweatpants’ surfacing early, it seems Because the Internet will have quite the imaginative rollout from Donald Glover, which can only get us more excited for this release.

He brings electro house and breaks into the picture, with his own massive twist. This release further estblishes how forward thinking and versatile he is as an artist. Although he let out a good chunk of the release, hearing it all together really gives you the complete story he is trying to tell. We already got to sample The full version of “Do or Die” with Childish Gambino really blew me away and instantly became one of the my favorite from both Flux Pavilion and Childish Gambino . “Double Edge (ft. Sway & P Money)” is Flux’s spin on the breaks style which he proceeds to do a damn good job of it. He brings back “I Can’t Stop”, which was one of his most iconic track for a brand new “I Still Can’t Stop”. It recharges the classic bass hit with the perfect crunchy yet sublte rebirth. Every single track on here is truly remarkable, all working together to form a cohesive project that is easily the most impressive piece of work to date for someone who continues to pave the path for bass music worldwide.
