Childish Gambino Disses Drake & Kendrick Lamar During Concert

Mon, July 28, 2014 8:12pm EST by 9 Comments

Slow down, Childish Gambino! The rapper threw major shade at Drake and Kendrick Lamar in a three-minute freestyle rap during his concert in Australia on July 27. Childish Gambino went as far as to rap to the crowd that he’ll ‘f**king kill’ the other rappers!

We’re shocked. During a profanity-laced freestyle rap on July 27, Childish Gambino, 30, called out both Drake, 27, and Kendrick Lamar, 27, and claimed that he was one of the top five rappers in the game. Seriously, you have to watch the video yourself to believe everything Childish said!

Childish Gambino: Fight With Drake & Kendrick Lamar? — Rappers Dissed

Childish, who is best known for his song “3005,” decided to show off his skills to an audience in Sydney, Australia — and diss a few rappers in the process. We think this was harsh, even by rap standards. 

“I’m the best rapper, definitely Top 5,” Childish told the crowd. “I cut their head off, that’s every rapper living. That’s Kendrick, that’s Drake, that’s Schoolboy, that’s everyone. I don’t give a f**k. I’ll f**king kill you n**gas.”

When talking about himself, Childish said, “G*d d*mn, mother f*cker I’m ill.”

Check out the video for yourself — the disses begin at 2:04.

Childish Gambino Disses Drake Twice

If things could not get anymore awkward, Childish called out Drake a second time, this time during one of the songs in his set.

“This n***a think he Drake,” Childish rhymed. “Nah, I ain’t Drake. I sing better, I do better, my s**t’s wetter.”

Besides rapping, Childish Gambino is also an actor. He goes by his real name, Donald Glover, in his acting career. He starred in the comedy TV show Community and was a writer for 30 Rock.

His rhymes are dam good thanks to his comedic, improv, and writing skills… but no… Glover is def not one of the best rappers alive. And claiming to be such just makes him come off as a douche.

His messages are weak and contradictory. You can’t rail against black machismo and homophobia, then turn around and drop the tough guy act when you get picked on.

The rampant misogyny in some of his lyrics doesn’t do much to help either.

Well, I like childish gambino more than drake for sure, and probably Kendrick Lamar too. But for a freestyle saying you’re the best, this is pretty weak. Not a very good freestyle…

Good, because he is better than all of them and he is the reason Kendrick is even known just like he did with HAIM, Chance The Rapper, and Kilo Kish. His last album sold more than most artists in the game now as well.

Album sales doesn’t mean you are a better rhymer. I’d that was the case Solja Boy would be considered ill. Lyrically he is nowhere in their league. He sales because white kids love him, and thats who buys majority of music today. Black people (not all) don’t buy music. They burn a copy, or download it for free. You will never here Childish Gambino being played in a black neighbourhood, club, or any function. His music gets no play on the radio in Atlanta (which is the Meca for music right now, and also for horrible music). You want here his music on Hot 97 in New York, which is probably the largest hip hop station in the US. He might get love in Cali. from black skaters, but really nowhere else. So, actually think about what you ate typing before you do it. Sales mean nothing when it comes to lyrics. Men lie, woman lie, and numbers can be altered. Don’t get mad I’m just trying to enlighten you.
