Listen To Childish Gambino's "Bonfire"

Listen to Childish Gambino's "Bonfire" off of his upcoming album Camp, won't you? It sort of makes my soul die to hear Glover rap lines like "I love pussy, I love bitches, dude, I should be runnin’ PETA," but still, props for fitting in Human Centipede, Invader Zim and ToeJam & Earl/Odd Future references into the same song. Here's the stream:

    As much as I love his music his stuff does get a bit misogynist. No matter how good the turn of phrase is, I hope he moves away from that. It's too prevalent in our society as it is. All this stuff we hear so often does have a negative effect. It absolutely leads to poor treatment of women. But I won't get into that again on another one of your blogs.

    It's a bit worse than that. I saw a video where he freestyled with Reggie Watts, and Reggie was incredible as always, but Glover spent all his time rapping about his junk. This kind of thing is the mark of an immature rapper (although lots of rappers never stop being immature, of course).

    I hope he outgrows it. The production in his material is pretty damn good and he does all that himself. And I want him to get his damn EGOT.
