    It's hard believing somebody like Childish Gambino being depressed.

  • SIZZLE610

    Normal people have fears and some self doubt sometimes. Doesnt mean he is depressed just means he is a sincere person and doesnt posture behind some faux macho bullshit like most other hip hop artists do.

    'Bino is the man. I hope his album is more like "Camp" than "Royalty" though. Camp was a fucking masterpiece to me

    People in the 'rap world' are too fuckin' cool to have feelings any more. Everyone's life is great. You show one sign of sensitivity or being HUMAN and motherfuckers act like there's something wrong with you. That's one of the things that ruined HIp-Hop. It has no human element any more because being honest and real is frowned upon. These kids think being 'real' means being a gangsters. Being real means having the courage to be yourself express how you feel, good bad, or indifferent. That was one of the things that endeared Eminem to people when he first came out. It wasn't just that he was white and had skills. It was that it was refreshing to hear a rapper that could actually have a sense of humor about himself and not have to be the coolest motherfucker alive at all times.

      @Demetri you're gunna tell me Evidence is not Vivid lyrically? Vivid raps is just under street rap umbrella. This certainly isn't a Drake endorsement but rappers are people too. It's okay for them to display their fears and nightmares. It's reality. Not every rapper can be Scarface. I have no problem with street rap. But guys like Gambino and Evidence make you really relate to the music in a very real way.

    • Well Actually

      Well actually the reports and media of him being 'depressed' have nothing to do with gangste rap or rap at all. They were media driven articles that made these assumptions. Go look at the Huffington Post. Most likely a hipster writer who thought he was sad when he was just being real. This has nothing to do with rap/feelings, it has everything to do with the media constructing assumptions and presenting them as facts. This is what Nipsey Hussle was talking about y'all. Read through the lines...

      Couldn't have said it better myself. I think the only gripe people have with the non-ganster rappers is that they may not be as vivid lyrically.
