Childish Gambino dropped STN MTN (Stone Mountain) on Thursday and anybody that knows me knows that I am a huge Childish fan. The Because the Internet was greatness so I was expecting something along the lines of that but of course artists like to branch out towards different sounds and styles and that is definitely what I got with this Gangsta Grillz mixtape.
The things that I liked about the tape was of course the Kari Faux No Small Talk Remix, ICYMI we featured Miss Faux as our AOTW back in August after her Laugh Now, Die Later EP dropped and across all the board every staff member's favorite song was No Small Talk so we were all ecstatic to see her featured on the Bino EP. I also loved the single Sober which was released a couple of weeks ago via SoundCloud. All Y'all was g rest track as well one of my favorites.
My dislikes were just that I didn't really feel as though Gangsta Grillz and Childish Gambino were a good mix, it isn't really something that I would like to hear from him. The remixes he did to some songs like Move that Dope and Money Baby were just kind of weird to me honestly.
Overall I really have mixed emotions about the whole project as a whole. It wasn't what I expected and It wasn't really something that I was like "Oh my God I have to listen to this again" which is the way that I felt with the Because the Internet Project. Hopefully Kauai will be a lot better, I'm excited for the future.
