I first caught “All The Shine” on YouTube (below) a few months back where Gambino was supported by a chill live jam session. The track was just released on SoundCloud, but has a whole different vibe goin for it.
At first I was a little skeptical hearing this new version. But after listening to its moving beat and soft stricken strings, it hit deep. It’s not just the empowering beats laid under Gambino’s rhymes, but the lyrics themselves – they’re getting more personal and free flowing than ever before. His vocals are as endearing as ever and, after criticizing his rap style for so long, I’m finally starting to see it.
Most of all, it’s nice to know I’m posting more for Childish Gambino and less because of Donald Glover.
