Childish Gambino: "Someone Buy Me Out Of This Contract"

Childish Gambino also says he doesn't like record companies and that he has been lied to by record label employees.

Childish Gambino appears to be unhappy with his record label following the release of his "Sweatpants" video. The rapper, who released his because the internet album in 2013 under Glassnote Records, voiced his displeasure with his current record label with a series of Twitter posts made yesterday (April 14).

"so this sweatpants video and blog was important to us. and it wasnt handled correctly," Gambino said via Twitter. "we were told a lot of things were gonna happen and they were all lies. so im done. someone buy me out of this contract. a lot of people came around after our first week sales. all those people are welcome now. def jam, atlantic, whatever. i dont like record companies. but im not having another project go through this." 

Gambino's Twitter posts are below, following the "Sweatpants" music video.

Gambino has utilized social media to vent about some of his frustrations in the past. In 2013, the rapper denied being clinically depressed after making a series of somber posts on social media networks.

    That song is acutally dope as fuck! Didn't know what to think of it at first (not much of a Gambino listener) but this song has really dope lyrics the content is hot when you listen close.

    Could take a few tips from Uncle Chance, and own ya own. Let's be real, Chance the Rapper did this with NO sitcom residuals. You might wanna try and do the same if creative control is what you want more than dollars. If its a close decision between dollars and creativity - then you already have your answer and just need to let all that wishlist ish go.

    This dudes album should have been titled "Because Community". Don't try to act like you are some random internet sensation. Nobody heard of Childish Gambino before you were already famous as Donald Glover. You're a dweeb with corny lines and annoying more often than entertaining. Suck a dick.

    i can't figure out why i don't like this guy more. he has decent verses and clever lyrics at times the songs are usually forgettable and good for one listen only. I guess he needs to suffer through some grow man shit and get realistic or something. Comin from a rich family being an actor and all is probably the issue. I understand you want to be a rapper but why what do you really have to say to contribute to this world besides cute shit.. I like to listen to artists that had to struggle to get a deal not whining to get out. Daddy will get u out your deal homie.

      does it remind you too much of your childhood? "money and blood don't mix like two dicks, find yourself in serious shit" Biggie said that one, do you listen to him?

      "My music goes hard, bang shit like gay penises" Childish Gambino said that line. That's why I don't like him.

      "Comin from a rich family being an actor and all is probably the issue." I hope to god you dont listen to Rik Rozz

    • FYI

      Not sure if you're a troll or not but hopefully this will enlighten others who haven't delved deep into his work. He actually grew up poor, because you probably haven't listened to his projects you wouldn't know but across Camp, Royalty, BTI, he tells his story growing up in hood with many brothers and sisters. He didn't get rich until later, I actually think he contributes alot to this world because he comes from the same eastside ATL streets as CyHi the Prince, Gucci, Future, Rich Homie Quan, Young Thug and the other EA rappers on top of the charts. His story is different though, because not everybody from that same struggle surcomes to their environment and ends up trapping. But I do agree he has some very weird shyt in his projects but thats part of the person, I don't like all his songs, but I definitely respect him and understand what makes him what he is.

    boo hoo you shitty rapper. Nobody wants to hear your album anyway

    • Anonymous

      some of them booty as rappers got platinum singles. all i was saying is that hes outselling them so to say "nobody wants to hear your album" is completely untrue.

    • A Trillionaire

      That's great if you want to compare yourself to booty ass rappers that no one will remember in 10 years.

      Apparently someone does. I believe he sold more than the latest albums from French Montana, Tyga, Ace Hood, DJ Khaled to name a few!

    He is honest with himself. Can't say that about many of the rappers out there. Too many plastics out there and you all eating it up. Be a suckafree.

    all label deals are the same unless you're a huge name. You're an actor right? How about reading that big ass script that they had you sign as a label deal.

    He's an actor, not a real rapper. Buy your lame ass out of your contract and stop bitching.
