If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Community's Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino has finally released his first album, Camp, after releasing several mixtapes and EPs free on his website and it deserves your money. If this is your first helping of CG, don't expect the usual actor-turned-rapper cash-grab.
Topics like bullies from grade school to high school, failed relationships and girls who have gotten away, to Gambino having to constantly defend his "blackness", brings this album to a whole new personal look at the young rapper/actor. It's a nice change as most rappers will hide their insecurities while Gambino lays it all on the table.
Some stand out tracks include "Outside" (a look into his rocky relationship with his cousin while his family is working hard to get out of the ghetto), "Heartbeat" (a frustration that turns into anger towards an ex that he cannot get out of his mind), and "That Power" (the outro to the album with half of the track is of him telling a story about him professing his love to a girl he met at camp while he was 13).
Childish Gambino has the skills to distinguish himself as a genuine rapper and isn't someone that be messed with. This album is a personal letter to his fans and a middle finger to his haters. If you like witty lyrics with substance pick up Camp.
