Childish Gambino dishes on his upcoming mixtape, "STN MTN / KAUAI", and his recent work with Ariana Grande.
Childish Gambino isn't afraid to get conceptual. The actor turnt rapper had an insanely elaborate rollout for his sophomore album, because the internet, which hit its peak with the release of a full accompanying screenplay.
Gambino just announced a new mixtape titled, STN MTN / KAUAI, which will apparently pick up where the narrative of his last album left off. âI feel like itâs the first concept mixtape ever,â he said in an interview with Billboard. âItâs a mixtape that goes into the EP but theyâre connected. Itâs the same character and the same story from because the internet and Camp. Itâs kind of like a nice in between for the next album.â
Glover also spoke of his recent collaboration with Ariana Grande, âBreak Your Heart Right Back", which appears on her new album, My Everything, and samples Biggie's iconic "Mo Money, Mo Problems" (or at least the source, "I'm Coming Out"). âThe song was sent to us and we immediately were like, âThis is a hit,ââ he explained.Â âShe just sounds so good on it and itâs a great song.â
