    People say CAMP was lame but I absolutely love that album. I don't get the hate like it was a really solid album and it was hella different.

    Yeah that’s wild. But the naysayers gonna say nay. Album’s always been solid imo.

    But it is interesting to see the amount of love he’s getting now. I remember a few years back when he was performing on stage and rapping about killing Drake, Kendrick, etc. They laughed him out of the room. :lol:

    Think that was like 2014 or something. Around the time Stone Mountain Kauai dropped.

    Speaking of Stone Mountain Kauai, that project was pretty damn good too.

    Matter of fact... Quiet as kept, Bino covertly been that ***** since Culdesac. :lol:

    Black Tumblr and Reddit "hiphopheads" generally hate the album.

    There's defintiely another layer to This Is America and that layer is this sudden love Gambino is getting and I can't shake the suspicion that he did the trap beat on purpose so more black people would listen more. Also, that's why you see all these trends in the music video among this chaos cuz he really didn't say much of anything on the actual song.

    Facts. The visuals are discussed more than the lyrics. But that was by design.

    Damn, I’m really about to go down the Bino rabbit hole this morning :lol:

    Listen again.

    Reading between the lines, he's saying a lot about the state of things now.

    I do think part of adding all those features was to help the song, but I think it also says a lot to have them pitching in on something like this. To have Thug at the end talking about being a black man in America...that's something I can really appreciate artistically. Especially considering this song and video is almost an amalgamation of the black experience since we got here. So while you can hear the trap influence, there's also a lot of African influence, gospel etc.

    "E.E. Cummin on her face now that's poetry in motion!" That's such a good line!

    Dude I listen to it almost at least 2-3 times a day lol I know he's saying more. But he's also not saying much at the same time. Some of the lines are kinda cryptic. Yo, did you notice that the drums don't kick in until he twitches/starts poppjng? I think he represents the chaos and conflict in black culture. Cuz it seems like he wants to groove to the african music but he's struggling in the beginning like he's hyper aggressive in his movements and then that weird face. It looks like he represents the trap drums and beat.

    There's an interview with one of the producers where they say that he was trying to have a "We Are the World" vibe when making this song.

    the way Gambino fans are eating now is pretty amazing. :smokin

    i started listening to Gambino a little after STN MTN/KAUAI dropped when he went on a hiatus and deleted everything. it was pretty sad for Gambino fans because no one knew what was happening, Community went on with their 6th season without Troy, the Gambino reddit page was dead and everyone wanted new music/updates. :lol:

    now it's AML, Atlanta, Solo, SNL, This is America/New Album, New Tour :smokin

    I wish I had a massive amount of clout/bill gates money in the world. I would have Tyler The Creator, Childish Gambino, Kanye West, Lupe, Pharrell, Rhymefest, The Roots, All of Black Hippy, Mos Def, Frank Ocean, The internet, Anderson.Paak, Mr Hudson & The Library, Organized Noise, Thundercat, Robert Glasper, Ludwig, all the musicians on TPAB, Travis Scott and Outkast all go in on a massive collaborative project.
