Peep This: Childish Gambino – Sober

Childish Gambino’s latest video for his feel-good joint, “Sober”, just dropped and the whole visual spectacle is truly appropriate. If you really think about it, the awkward arc the video takes from gawky introduction into a triumphantly charismatic conclusion – albeit with a lingering sense of gracelessness – sums up who Childish Gambino is himself. It seems like we’re eons removed from Bino’s initially klunky and try-hard forray into hip-hop. As he progressed, the refinement and charm he applied to his career eventually started winning over even his most staunchest of critics. It’s really come to a point now where whatever Childish drops is a must to check out right away, and this new video for “Sober” is more evidence of such.

Richard "Reach" Guinto

Reach loves the Lakers, breakfast, the sound of a Fender Rhodes, and rapping along word for word to Wu Tang's "Triumph." If you're looking for him, he's probably out getting chicken.
