In case you haven’t noticed, Donald Glover is not f*cking around for his upcoming mixtape. After a few heaters with unexpected MCs like ScHoolboy Q on “Unnecessary” and Neighborhood Nip for “Royalty,” the Community star has just delivered a new track featuring and co-produced by indie icon Beck. Backed by a beat that evokes visions of the house of mirrors at some off-beaten carnival and a theme of re-envisioning the norm, this one-hook gem seems to solidify Gambino has turned a corner in his music. Between doing tracks with his heroes and upping his output, the actor-turnt-rapper seems to be spewing more confidence than ever.
Considering CG’s upcoming tape is already full of heavy-hitters and still doesn’t even have a name, it’d probably be safe to assume we’ll either get another big feature to push the tape over the top or possibly just a rock-solid solo track to further his rap renaissance.
We’ll take both. Thanks.
Childish Gambino Feat. Beck – “Silk Pillow”
