Childish Gambino was the guest on Sway In The Morning, and while on air he took the opportunity to get off a few bars over the “Pound Cake” instrumental. Gambino starts it off with aggression: “Let ’em speak/I know I’m Meek but the Mill’s louder/Watch the Throne kings killed when the prince feels power.”
After rapping about how his good friends such as Chance The Rapper and Kendrick Lamar are “making millions,” Gambino takes a minute to deliver a talking interlude about what wealth really means. He transitions mid-speech back into rap mode, and concludes the freestyle by actually going off the top of his head. Not only is the freestyle spontaneous, but it also addresses current events going on in Gambino’s life: “Are you still on the show [Community], are you dating Jhene [Aiko]?”
Gambino has a new album coming, Before The Internet. It will be coming out December 10.
