Rapper Childish Gambino (Donald Glove) threw a verbal gantlet down at the feet of some of the most popular names in hip-hop during a performance in Sydney, Australia.
In the concert on during a freestyle Childish Gambino called out Drake Schoolboy Q and Kendrick Lamar stating that he is a better rapper as a matter fact that he's a better rapper than anyone out there right now.
"I’m the best rapper, definitely top 5.
I’ll cut their heads off, that’s every rapper living.
That’s Kendrick, That’s Drake, That’s SchoolBoy, That’s everyone.
I don’t give a f***, I’ll kill N****s."
In addition, he had extra jab to throw at Drake stemming from the media comparing the two of them as that they are both rappers, singers and actors.
There is no clear-cut reason for Childish Gambino to have any animosity toward any of the rappers he named. However, Childish Gambino and Drake where both rumored have had romantic relationships with Jhene Aiko last year so that may have something to do with it.
Others speculate that this may just be a calculated move on Gambino’s part to be acknowledged as a serious talent by the rap community. He may also be looking to expand his fanbase beyond those that follow his acting on shows like “Community” and “Girls”.
While, none of the three has responded yet, it will be interesting to see if this is the start of a good old fashioned diss records. Good luck to Childish Gambino but my money is on Kendrick.
“This n---- think he Drake. Nah I ain’t Drake. I sing better, I do better, my shit wetter.”
