Childish Gambino is coming for Drake’s neck or, more accurately, his vocal chords on “Sober,” the first release from his upcoming mixtape STN MTN/Kauai. “Sober” is from the Kauai side of the tape, which may indicate that side will contain more singing then rapping from the Georgia native.
The, clubby, mid-tempo, track finds Gambino feeling the withdrawal effects of love and other drugs, presumably while wearing a white suit with a pastel colored t-shirt underneath his jacket. Announced in late August, STN MTN/Kauai is probably the most unlikely Gangsta Grillz mixtape, and it will be interesting to see the interplay and clash of styles, both musical and stylistic, between the two halves of the album, and DJ Drama and Gambino. We’ll find out whether it works soon enough.
