Childish Gambino Announces New Mixtape With Jaden Smith
Somewhere between touring, doing stand-up and being on television, Childish Gambino found the time to record a new mixtape.
The project, titled 'stnmtn/kauai,' will be hosted by DJ Drama and is part of the Gangsta Grillz series. The rapper announced the tape Wednesday (Aug. 27) via Twitter, but didn't provide a release date or give any more details. He did include a link to the artwork, which shows that actor-rapper Jaden Smith will be part of the project -- in what capacity is unknown.
The top half of the cover is titled 'Stnmtn,' a possible reference to the rapper's hometown of Stone Mountain, Ga., while the bottom half says "Kauai, With Jaden Smith as 'The Boy.'" Perhaps the Fresh Prince's son will providing narration on the tape.
Childish Gambino also spits a pretty impressive verse on Logic's 'Driving Ms. Daisy,' a new song about life, women and relationships.
"I'm in my lane like a Prius cause I'm moving in silence, still ain't broke down yet / All the flashing lights and a couple Crown Vic's, wanna rock a crown and a ring on the left / Tell your n---- speed up, she don't wanna get left / Relationships look closer in that rearview, finally slow it down and realize she ain't nowhere near you," he rhymes.
Besides the forthcoming mixtape, the renaissance artist will be appearing in Boston on the Deep Web tour next month, and he'll be hitting Austin City Limits in October.
