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.

Last year marked the first for Spring Awakening Music Festival, one of the new strictly electronic festivals that brought in over 50,000 people it’s first year. The festival is returning to the legendary Soldier Field in the heart of Chicago this year now taking place 3 days during June 14th, 15th, & 16th. The festival is expecting to be even bigger, with over 75,000 in attendance, and over 100 Dj’s in playing over the 3 days. Early bird tickets went on sale this morning and sold out, so look out for the next round of cheap tickets before going up again.
There are two confimred headliners so far, the mastermind of bass, Bassnectar. Then on the complete other spectrum of the electronic world, house legend turned mainstream star Calvin Harris will be headlining as well. There are also some strong rumors that we can’t full confirm, but would like to very much believe due to artists either accidentally announcing after playing a show in Chicago and online. These names have not been confirmed by the festival, but include: Zeds Dead, NERVO, and Gramatik.
The whole This Song Is Sick crew is looking forward to this massive 3 days in the wonderful city of Chicago!
