Trust us, we get it. Hubris is an essential part of the rap game and everybody thinks they’re the best. Hell, even LL Cool J thought he was the “greatest of all time”. No offense, LL but that was a little premature. Well, the latest victim of excessive pride is everyone’s favorite actor/rapper of the moment, Childish Gambino.
On tour in Australia, Donald Glover found himself in the middle of a freestyle in front of a packed crowd and launched into this tirade:
“I’m the best rapper, definitely Top 5. If these other rappers think they’re, they’re fucking not alive. I cut their head off, that’s every rapper living. That’s Kendrick, that’s Drake, that’s Schoolboy, that’s everyone. I don’t give a f*ck. I’ll f*cking kill you n*ggas. I’ll f*cking kill you n*ggas.”
Like we said, we get it, but this was too much. We don’t think there’s any one seeing Kendrick lyrically right now, sorry Donald. We don’t think there’s any one making better music overall than Drake, sorry Donald. Does Childish have some really good records? Hell yeah, but everyone has a lane and it’s clear to see that he is trying to swerve out of his, probably in an effort to gain more fans and a few headlines.
What do y’all think? Is Childish Gambino wyling out or is he closer than most people think?
Heard that new banger from The Weeknd yet?
