    Childish is probably at the top of my list of favorite rappers. I've loved everything he's put out post-culdesac and Because The Internet was definitely one of my favorite albums last year. Anticipating the shit out of this.

    I see '"Awaken, My Love!"' had no representation on here. I think it's an amazing album.
    But now:

    NEW SONG This Is America.



    Edit.
    Brings back rap after "Awaken"; shows some very contemporary influences, but mixes them with soul/gospel/African influences that we've seen on his last album, even some folk in there. The contemporary stuff seems to represent the violent/negatives sides (or more like "reality") and the other influences rather the positive or wishful; at the end they unite fluidly. I like the artistic expression.

    The song works a lot better with the video than without. The video completely elevates it.

    The song still works well for me without the music video, but I think it would have worked even better if they'd left the gunshots in. Well, there is still a chance they'll be back on the album version.
