Kendrick Lamar Gets Spliced With Childish Gambino on Mash-Up Album, ‘good boy, d.E.E.p Web’ [LISTEN]
The British producer released a 16-track mashup effort that combines Lamar's rhymes and Gambino's beats. It's aptly titled good boy, d.E.E.p Web -- a portmanteau of Lamar's good kid m.A.A.d. city and Gambino's Because the Internet.
Even the cover mashes up the two, as Lamar's face is placed over Gambino's profile that's featured on Because the Internet's album cover.
Fans of Gambino should be stoked as this is hardly the first project they'll receive from the Atlanta rapper in the coming weeks. He's slated to premiere his third studio album, Pharos, this weekend at a listening event in California’s Joshua Tree National Park. Fans speculate that the official album release will soon follow. His FX series, Atlanta, is also set to debut next week on Tuesday (Sept. 6). On top of that. Gambino, who's real name is Donald Glover, was cast in Spider-Man: Homecoming and is rumored to play a young version of Lando Calrissian in the Han Solo prequel.
As for the collab tape, this is hardly the first time a producer got creative with mashups.
Back in December, Otaku Gang released Life After Death Star, a mashup of Biggie's Life After Death and the epic score from Star Wars. And before that Amerigo Gazaway dropped Yasiin Gaye, a mashup of music from Yasiin Bey (formerly Mos Def) and Marvin Gaye.
