As early as 3am on Sunday, Childish Gambino fans waited outside Rough Trade NYC to be the very first to buy his new album, because the internet. Those who got in earliest were invited to see him perform that evening in a secret, somewhat random, loft in Manhattan.
100+ dedicated Tumblr’ers traversed two boroughs, huddled outside in the snow and huffed up six flights of stairs to what culminated in a super intimate, memorable show. In a representation of the mansion setting where he recorded the album, with projections that brought his art to life and backed by a full band, Childish Gambino presented his new music to his most passionate fans as it was meant to be discovered, IRL.
Somehow, they had already learned all the words.
Big thanks to Childish Gambino for hosting, providing the music and signing a million autographs in his room, Brian Roettinger for creating the art, Glassnote Music, Rough Trade and the incredibly chill dude who welcomed us into his home.

Ain’t this some shit…
John H. White, 54, was found guilty of the second-degree manslaughter charge that prosecutors had sought, and of criminal possession of a weapon.
He will face a maximum term of 5 to 15 years in prison.
Mr. White was convicted of shooting Daniel Cicciaro, 17, point-blank in the face on Aug. 9, 2006. Daniel and several friends had left a party and showed up Mr. White’s house just after 11 p.m. to challenge his son Aaron, then 19, to a fight, and had used threats, profanities and racial epithets. Mr. White awoke and grabbed a loaded Beretta pistol he kept in the garage of his house in Miller Place, a predominantly white hamlet on Long Island.
Mr. White testified that Aaron woke him from a deep sleep the night of the shooting, yelling that that “some kids are coming here to kill me.” Mr. White said he considered the angry teenagers a “lynch mob.”
He said their racist language recalled the hatred he saw as a child visiting the segregated Deep South and stories of his grandfather’s being chased out of Alabama in the 1920s by the Ku Klux Klan.
Mr. White testified that his grandfather taught him how to shoot and bequeathed him the pistol he used.
A lawyer for Mr. White, Frederick K. Brewington, insisted in his summation that this was a “modern-day lynch mob” and that Mr. White considered it “history replaying itself.”
THIS. THIS BULLSHIT. THIS IS THE EXACT BULLSHIT THAT CAUSES SO MUCH FUCKING OUTRAGE.
A MOB OF WHITE IDIOTS SHOW UP ON YOUR PROPERTY THREATENING YOUR FAMILY AND YOU TAKE ACTION, YOUR BLACK ASS IS GOING PRISON.
BUT IF A FAT WHITE CREEP GOES OUT OF HIS WAY TO PLAY JUDGE, JURY, AND EXECUTIONER OF A BLACK TEENAGER, AND THE SUPPORT IS OVERFLOWING. IT’S THE TEENAGER’S FAULT.
I CANNOT DEAL.
america aint shit iono why niggas surprised by this. it wont ever change jus the same ol bullshit fuck society
