We came, we saw and we kept the hits coming for more than two hours last night on The Concrete Schoolyard! We had local artist T. Jay getting us Ignant, Chance The Rapper had us Feeling Good and A.Dd+ let us know the Plus Sign is Silent. But the biggest message from last night was from Mr. I am donald himself.
This album is definitely in the running for album of the year. I really wish he would drop an album in time for the Grammy’s though!!! Fortunately, he’s an even bigger star (hard to believe) this time around, on and off the mic, than he was with his previous release, Camp.
I have patiently been waiting for this to drop and Because the Internet lived up to all expectation and even out performed my preconceived perception of Gambino’s musical perfection. From the jump the album just goes, quite simply it YAMS! That’s my term for inconceivably hard, jammin tunes. The melodic first song after the intro “I. Crawl” with that crunk Mystikal sample in the back gets you hype and sets the tone.
The Full Because the Internet Experience
To fully enjoy the album, much like Kendrick Lamar’s GKMC, you must take in all aspects. There is a short film titled Clapping For the Wrong Reasons you should definitely watch as a prelude to the album, it is embedded below.
After that you are to read the screenplay HERE as you listen to the album! I myself have not had the chance to read this in it’s entirety but I intend to ASAP. It seems to pick up right where CAMP left us!
The show was packed with lots of new never before played music from James Blake, The Alchemist and a few more people you know you’ve never heard of that we pride ourselves in introducing you to! Listen HERE
