Kanye West and The College Dropout helped a new generation of kids who didn’t fit the then-current hip hop archetypes to find their way. Childish Gambino, as well as his particular brand of “Black nerd” delivered on his debut album, Camp, surely benefitted from the cultural shift instigated by Kanye.
