Not sure what’s cooler, the fact that I was thinking (read: writing) about Childish Gambino for the big homies while on the train, or that during this train ride Childish Gambino leaked his “telegraph ave.” single, which included a remix from one of my favorite producers, Ta-ku. The original is airy, kind of space-y, and finds Gambino dipping between singing and rapping… Ta-ku doesn’t disturb that balance, but he does turn it up a bit, picking up random lyrics and crafting his own narrative. It’s a captivating slice of Bmore-influenced beauty, and highlights how well of a singer Childish Gambino is. Grab both tracks right now.
