Because the Internet

Childish Gambino revealed an interesting strategy when revealing his much anticipated sophomore album, he released two singles at a time, twice, before the album dropped. He organized his album into a few mini-EP’s using roman numerals, a possible reflection on the way he used the internet to jumpstart his rap career and a definite shout-out to the Worldstar internet society that he challenges and embraces at different points during his album (most notable on II. Worldstar). This album is as fantastic as it is diverse, a must pick up in my opinion. I found picking a favorite among the singles impossible, so I went with the most popular at the moment, enjoy:

Chance The Rapper

We have a double feature for you Gents today.  Chance The Rapper is an up and comer out of Chicago that has really been turning heads with his old school flows.  We are showing two songs of his new mixtape “Acid Rap” which can be downloaded for free off his site chanceraps.com.  Pay close attention to the second track, it features someone who might sound familiar.  Beware of some choice language.
