Looks Like Rumors Of A New Childish Gambino Album Were Super False

"My emotions!"

We can collectively agree that a Childish Gambino album in 2016 would be pretty sweet.

The artist hasn't released a project since STN MTN / Kauai and a studio album since the Grammy-nominated Because The Internet in 2013.

With news of his long-awaited series Atlanta coming to FX this summer, it looks as though the music was placed on the backburner. That is until a few fans on Reddit noticed Andrew Dawson, an engineer who has worked with Gambino in the past, updated his site to include work from Kanye West's The Life of Pablo and a TBA project from the "Sober" artist. The credit led to assumptions that an LP from Gambino was mixed and expected to drop sometime soon.

 

In an update from DJ Booth, Dawson's camp shut down the rumors by blaming the credit on an intern."That was entered into Andrew’s discography as a placeholder by an intern at my old company and was never meant to be a representation of Andrew’s work (current or forward moving)," their statement reads. "The error has been corrected on Andrew’s website and we have nothing to report on the status or existence of another Childish Gambino album. Sorry for the confusion."

Moments after, the site was indeed updated.

 

It's no surprise Donald Glover's focus lies in other projects. During a press run for his film The Lazarus Project last year, the 31-year-old hinted his "Childish Gambino" persona was coming to an end. “I guess Childish Gambino is a period in my art time," he said. "I want to have periods in my life. I feel like Childish Gambino is a period that should come to a close. I like endings.”

With all of the social pages with the Gambino moniker relatively inactive, we'll have to accept that all good things come to an end.

YG Shares Fourth Album Title Ahead Of May Release Date

YG is preparing to bless fans with a highly-anticipated full-length album since he announced its release for May 3. Now, in an interview with Billboard, the "FDT" rapper shared the fourth studio project's name, 4REAL 4REAL.

The 29-year-old artist revealed that being in the studio is where he feels unabashedly free, especially given this tough time since his longtime friend Nipsey Hussle was murdered on March 31. "If I'm not doing music, I feel depressed," he said. "I feel like I ain't sh*t. I like to create, and right now, I know where I want to be, and I know how to get there."

The Compton native's previous album, Stay Dangerous, hosts singles like "Big Bank," "Handgun," and other cuts featuring Jay 305 like "Bulletproof," "Slay" with Quavo," and "Power" featuring Ty Dolla $ign.

"From my first album to my second album, and from my second album to my third album, it took me two years to put out each project," he said. "That wasn't my choice. Life was changing: I got shot, I had a daughter. It was crazy—it took a little longer."

YG's upcoming project was originally slated for a mid-April release, but when the shocking news of Hussle's passing hit, the famed rapper placed a halt on the soundscape's debut. During his first weekend set at Coachella, YG said he was able to push through the performance given his consumption of alcohol. "But my ni**a gone," he said, per HipHopDX. "I got to deal with the sh*t. So I decided to push my album back to May 3."

T.I. Bails 23 Nonviolent Offenders Out Of Jail For Easter

T.I. did a remarkable thing this Easter (April 21). In the true spirit of the holiday, T.I. bailed 23 nonviolent offenders out of the DeKalb County Jail in Georgia.

T.I., Love & Hip Hop's Scrapp Deleon, and the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Lithonia, Ga reportedly worked together to bail out seven women and 16 men who were locked up for first-time or nonviolent offenses. The deed was done as part of the church's "Bail Out" program.

"It's almost like finally meeting the good Samaritan – somebody who you don't know that you didn't see coming," senior Pastor Dr. Jamal Bryant said good deed. "They're appreciative to be able to press the refresh button."

The philanthropic work doesn't stop after the men and women are released, however. The "Bail Out" program also connects the newly-released citizens with a certified mentor for weekly check-ins. A portion of the donations received by the program will be used to establish college funds for former inmates with children.

According to Fox 5, New Birth Missionary launched the "Bail Out" program on Lent (Mar. 6). They pledged to raise $40,000 in order to bail inmates out of jail just in time for Easter Sunday. As soon as T.I. got involved, donations reportedly skyrocketed to $120,000.

We should take note of their courageous efforts.
