Childish Gambino Calls Out Drake, Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q

"Sweatpants" MC proclaims he's the "best rapper" alive during a freestyle at a show in Australia.

Published July 28, 2014

Childish Gambino blasted Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q and Drake and then named himself the "best rapper alive" all in one swoop over the weekend. 

Gambino was performing in Australia and let the lyrical slights loose in a freestyle inspired by Lamar's year-old "Control" verse. "I'm the best rapper, definitely top five," he spit. "I cut their head off, that's every rapper living/That's Kendrick, that's Drake, that's ScHoolboy, that's everyone/I don't give a f--k. I'll f---ing kill you n----s."

That last line sent the crowd into a frenzy, and he even gave Drake another serving of hate rhyming, "This n---a think he Drake. Nah, I ain't Drake. I sing better, I do better, my s--t wetter."

The Atlanta's rapper's name-dropping extravaganza was probably his way of trying to get a rise out of the crowd, or maybe he was just caught up in the moment. Either way, he's already over the media attention. Earlier today (July 28) he tweeted, "slow news day." is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
