3 Things We Now Know From Childish Gambino’s (Donald Glover) New Album Preview


1. We know that it’s called ‘because the internet.’

I personally love the title, being that “because the internet” is a phrase I use regularly, specifically when referring to why I try to avoid reading comments unless I’m having an excessively confident day. It resonates with a lot of us, even if our use and view of ‘because the internet’ is different from Gambino’s.

2. We know that we still don’t know exactly what Roscoe’s Wetsuit means.

At this point, I feel like the only practical answer to “What is #RoscoesWetsuit?” would be the infamous Angelica Pickles line, “If you have to ask, you’ll never know.” I’ve heard fans claim to be aware of its meaning, but this is the most thought provoking lead I’ve seen so far, found on a reddit post:

If you put “roscoe’s wetsuit” into the wu-tang name generator, you get “Sixty Second The Baptist”. If you put “Donald Bennett”, (Childish Gambino’s first name and Chance the Rapper’s last name) you also get Sixty Second The Baptist. What are the odds?

3. It’ll be available this winter.

Patience — we’ve been anticipating it this long, indulge in the some throwback Gambino music for the next few months to survive.
