Reason #2: Childish Gambino takes a ton of chances on Because the Internet—and just about all of them pay off.
We can pretty much guarantee that you haven't heard anything like Because the Internet this year. Here, Glover sings almost as much as he raps. He utilizes guest appearances from the likes of Chance the Rapper and Azealia Banks in small, meaningful doses.
And he makes unconventional moves, like recording a song called "The Party," which is arguably one of the strongest cuts on the album, that is only 1:31 long. A lot of people have used the word "experimental" to describe the project. We don't want that word to scare you off, but it's certainly applicable.
