New Music: Childish Gambino ‘Candler Road’


Versatility reigns supreme on Childish Gambino’s newest song, “Candler Road.” Beginning the 3-minute track with boastful bars over a trap-laden backdrop, the rapper then goes the Drake route with a mid-track switch-up. Offering a wordless sung hook on the second half, Gambino gets a bit more introspective while conserving his confidence:

“They want the old ‘Bino so they try to rewind/ The new ‘Bino too ahead of his time, in a couple of years/ They’ll have to say I birthed a couple careers,” he spits.
