Well, we certainly didn’t see this coming. Even though Donald Glover—aka Childish Gambino—has a slew of successful mixtapes under his belt and even though his debut album, Camp, was generally well received and earned him a pocket of faithful fans, we didn’t think that his second album, Because the Internet, which is available today, would be as good as it is.
The project, which features guest appearances from Chance the Rapper, Azealia Banks and Jhene Aiko, is forcing a lot of publications to rethink their “Best Albums of 2013” lists right now and is already being heralded as a project that will help launch Childish Gambino into the mainstream. If you’re still sleeping on Childish Gambino—or, worse, if you’re still writing him off as a gimmicky joke rapper because of his acting career—it’s time to wake up. These are 6 reasons you might want to buy Because the Internet today.
