Childish Gambino Turns the Heat Up on ‘Sweatpants’ Featuring Problem

Childish Gambino
Glassnote Records/Universal

Between single releases and live performances, the tracks from Childish Gambino‘s ‘Because the Internet‘ have been coming in thick and fast. With a little under two weeks ’til his sophomore album arrives (not online but in stores, ironically), Donald Glover treats us to yet another new cut, ‘Sweatpants,’ featuring West Coast hit-maker Problem.

The questionable title aside, it’s another arrogant and animated effort from ‘Bino that we’ve been hearing more of lately. Though brags about gwap and girls are standard issue, Donald’s flexing is more often than not rooted in the idea of self-confidence and identity. “Don’t be mad ’cause I’m doing me better than you doing you,” is how Problem’s instantly infectious hook goes.

Toying with flows, pitches and mannerisms throughout, ‘Sweatpants’ is further proof that ‘Bino has seriously stepped his game up. Even if you’ve been a proud member of the Donald-Glover-is-a-cornball-rapper-who-should-stick-to-comedy club since the days of ‘Camp,’ you may still be tempted to convert.

‘Because the Internet’ — featuring further appearances from Chance the Rapper, Jhene Aiko and Azealia Banks — drops Dec. 10. You can pre-order the album now on iTunes.
