Pitchfork tears apart Childish Gambino: A few weeks ago, we noted how weird it was that Pitchfork basically ignored Donald Glover’s turn as Childish Gambino — to the point where if you only read Pitchfork, you’d be blissfully unaware that the “Community” star was a rapper. We suggested that what was likely to happen was that they would bury the review a few weeks later and rip the album apart. Hence, this review. 1.6. Accusations of “hashtag rap.” Suggestions that he’s only inspired by Kanye. Sounds about right. The words would’ve sounded braver if they had reviewed it the day after it came out, like they did with Lulu.

    The best part of this is the fact that he literally says on the album that Pitchfork only likes rappers who are “crazy...
  6. mconor said: the review was great, although yes, I agree it was cowardly to keep it away for so long. I mean geeze, it came out the same day as Take Care. but it was undeserving of such a bad score

  12. manicchill said: Not to be “that guy” but Culdesac and EP were both much better offerings, and neither had the financial backing of a label. But you’re absolutely right, it’s easy to fling mud, two weeks later, from behind a wall of other distractions.
  13. sonicbloom11 said: Maybe I’m reading too much into this, but did Pitchfork completely ignore the title of the album while listening to it? I get the feeling Glover did everything they complain about as part of a campy send-up of hip-hop and the industry.
