Thread: Gambino is a mastermind...

  1. #1

    Default Gambino is a mastermind...

    I had a feeling for months that he was going to be on the bill, and once his tour schedule came out it was pretty much guaranteed. I'm hoping that even though he is on the sixth line Saturday, he somehow manages to get a late afternoon or night time set with the crowd that he deserves. He was fantastic at Club Nokia a few months ago

    Any thoughts on whether he will do the full Gambino show format with a little standup, or if he'll wanna keep it strictly music for the festival? I don't know how well standup will translate in the Coachella setting.

    If he is booked under Childish Gambino then its probably strictly music.

    IDK about mastermind, but I like some of Camp and his verse on the Rolling In The Deep remix is sick.

    This guy is a dork who needs to get over whatever high-school era insecurities he's still holding on to. I seriously do not get the hype, and I love hip-hop.

    I saw him on the camp pre tour in november and it was straight music -- full live band that had a great sound. he played a lot of CAMP plus freaks and geeks, all of the lights, and some other EP tracks

    At Bonnaroo last year it was all music. I'd imagine it will be the same at Coachella. Stoked to see him again.

    Love Gambino. Seeing him next week in London. Barring some sort of wild clash (saturday is my favourite day music wise) I'll hopefully see him again.

    It will be strictly music he keeps Donald Glover and Childish Gambino 100% separate.

    It's because he's an overhyped try hard and half his songs are just him awkwardly spewing insecure hipster bullshit to disinterested girls. The real swag will be over at A$AP Rocky's set.

    I like this guy. I for one don't hope every act ever is at night. He would be a nice way to start the day.

    i really want to like this guy cause he seems like a cool dude, but his music is pretty terrible and his standup is pretty lame...he's funny on community though.

    I want to like him too but his voice gets pretty abrasive after awhile and his lyrics have WAY too much boasting about his dick and fucking. Sounds like a bunch of guys who aren't getting any talking about it in a High School locker room.

    I saw him this last year at FunFunFun Fest in Austin as both Childish Gambino and Dong lov.. Er Donald Glover. Hilarious standup, pretty good hip hop.

    I was pretty into Freaks and Geeks when it hit last year, but I agree with the criticisms of Camp which state that his lyrics about being an outcast for not being "hood" enough are trite and outdated. I don't think it's necessarily fair to say that he cribbed his production values from Kanye whole-hog, but the level of influence is fairly transparent. I like his flow, and will certainly be present at his set barring any severe conflicts.

    It's one of his lyrics, maybe you should pay more attention to your signature.

    I like the few things I've heard so far (like the videos on this thread). I can understand people not being thrown away, but this definitely isn't bad. I'll be checking him out unless there are any ridiculous conflicts (which is fairly likely).

    At Rock the Bells last year he stole the show and put on the best performance of the day except for Erykah Badu.

    He was like a hyper spazzing stoned wizard and had this Bill Murry T shirt on.

    I tried to like it, but this dude sucks. He's a pretty good comedy writer, and I sort of liked some of the early tracks that was just him rapping over indie rock songs... but I listened to the whole album a couple times, and it's just really, really bad.

    I've heard the complaints. But I'm digging his album, and it looks like he delivers live. I'm down.

    I like his word play. I heard he killed it at RTB. I'm sure it will be better than last years Odd Future debacle.
