Only a few days after releasing his latest mixtape Royalty, which introduced the world to Tina Fey rapping (we already knew she had the moves), Childish Gambino put out another new song last night. “Body” is a collaboration with Mobb Deep’s Prodigy that mentions Aaahh!!! Real Monsters (“So we all real monsters, Nicktoons’ Ickis/That line’s the stupidest, but it be lucrative”) and Community (“You don’t watch Community? Girl, what is you lyin’ for?”), but what makes this song stand out is the chilling sample of Portishead’s “Elysium.”
If you know why this didn’t make it onto Royalty, let me know. ‘Cause I have no idea.
