A few days ago I had a friend tell me that he didn’t like the “more street” Childish Gambino. Of course, I defended Donald to no limit, but part of me agreed with my friend. As Gambino tries harder and harder to prove that he is a legitimate rapper, he almost moves farther and farther away from what drew me to him originally, and I do think he found the middle ground on Royalty with songs like “Shoulda Known” and “Won’t Stop,” which gives me tons of hope for his upcoming album.
His verses on “More Than Normal” are pure, old-school Donald–like, Culdesac-era ‘Bino. This should definitely satisfy long-term fans in a big way.
