Childish Gambino, a.k.a Troy from ‘Community’, a.k.a the voice of your new friendly neighborhood Spiderman, a.k.a. the Donald Glover of all damn trades, just released a new 18 song mixtape called STN MTN. If his last full album Because the Internet wasn’t concept-heavy enough for you (it came with a screenplay, a short film, an app, and an entire interactive tour experience), then you’re in luck. This tape flexes all of Gambino’s lyrical muscles over ATL-inspired beats, while serving as a conceptual lead up to a new EP, KAUAI, which he described in a recent interview with Complex:
“It’s a Gangsta Grillz mixtape that goes into an EP. The Gangsta Grillz mixtape is a dream, and the dream ends when I wake up in Kauai. And they go into each other; it’s one complete project, but you can download the mixtape and you can go buy the EP. The money from the EP goes to help keeping Kauai clean.”
Bonus: the tape features Twitter legend Jaden Smith, who essentially sounds the way his Tweets feel. Download the mixtape for free on Donald’s site here, or stream it below.
