Childish Gambino is back in the rap game with the release of his new song, “Centipede.”
With a soulful, uplifting introduction, the young MC uses a capella before breaking out into verses of his family origin over spacey soundscapes. “Gotta make it, ’cause if not, I’m a failure,” Gambino repeats through out the track.
The outro of “Centipede” samples a part from an online mini-documentary about and featuring Charles Hamilton, titled “Behind the Lava Lamp.”
While this track incorporates a lot of different elements, they are all intrinsic to cultivating Gambino’s sound.
Since Donald Glover won’t be returning to “Community” next season, fans should expect even more music to come. He has yet to release a follow-up to his 2011 debut, “Camp.”
