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.

Yes, bass music was the main focal point of the performances as were tracks off Skrillex's recent debut artists album Recess, but the rawness and fearlessness to transition into hip-hop/rap, place an interlude featuring MGMT's "Kids", and having guest appearances from Dillon Francis and A$AP Rocky made the set as special for those in attendance or watching at home could have asked for.
