That’s Donald Glover’s explanation behind the Soundcloud link below.
And it shows. The cut was released on iTunes unapproved, so Donald dropped it for free via the link below. “What Kind of Love” isn’t necessarily bad–it is unfinished, after all–but it simply features a faint acoustic loop and Glover’s quasi-spoken word freestyle. It’s nothing too different than you’d find midway through an old Devendra Banhart album, and it’s only a few weird instruments shy of a Grizzly Bear song. Donald’s an eclectic guy, so we’re assuming those two comparisons wouldn’t slight him much.
Again, no judgments, but just prep yourself. “The Worst Guys” it ain’t.
