I like rap. Now when you look at me, I know I don't really look like the type. But let's be honest, there are quite a lot of youngish caucasian girls proclaiming themselves as Gambino connoisseurs. (I can recite Lights Turned On disgustingly flawlessly.) I feel like Childish Gambino and Watsky are kindred spirits. They're by no means the same. But they're a lot more akin to one another than trying to put them next to Jay-Z or The Game (also very, very good).
I've really only been listening to Watsky since the beginning of the year, but I remember rumblings of him stealing the show at Vidcon. Specifically with a particular stage dive. But he's become my jam and I even have tickets to see him when he comes to London on his tour. Excite. So in celebration of his new album, Cardboard Castles, which drops in a matter of hours, I thought I'd share some of my favorites. By the way, for a limited time you can listen to the entire new album for free.
