Childish Gambino – Me and Your Mama

Psych-prog hip-hop…


Ramzi Awn: An epic of masterful proportions, “Me and Your Mama” takes its sweet, sweet time. Structurally, it conjures up something entirely new, and the mix boasts all the right levels. From the carnival laugh to the Zep-infused rhythm, Gambino leaves nothing off the table and belts a raucous vocal.   

Anthony Easton: Between the end of this, most of Frank Ocean’s Endless, and Clipping, is this the year that hip hop just fully absorbed prog? 

Alfred Soto: He wanted Free Your Mind and Your Ass Will Follow; he gets Let Love Rule with bronchitis.

Will Adams: Aw, that’s cute: he thinks he’s Miguel.

Jessica Doyle: At this point I will grant Donald Glover license to do just about anything, up to and including a six-minute-long, Moog-enhanced, drain-circling sideways meditation on the negative effects of continuous marijuana smoking on fragile love and vice versa.

Thomas Inskeep: It’s jazzy, it’s psychedelic soul, and it’s nothing at all like I expected. Someone’s been listening to a lot of Andre 3000.
