This Fake Childish Gambino Rap Is Genius

A brief trailer for the new Star Wars movie starring some fucking guy as Han Solo and Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian aired during the Super Bowl. That was enough to inspire internet genius Demi Adejuyigbe to make a fake rap as Childish Gambino, the name Glover uses while rapping:


It has all of the elements of a Childish song: puns, offbeat autobiographical details, hashtag rap, and multiple off-putting references to Asian girls. It’s about as note-perfect as an impression can get, and honestly might be better than the real thing.

For me, the best line is, “get you frozen in some carbonite too/if I’m Hanest,” and the second is, “now you’re Dylan with the African-American Vandal.” But there are so many to choose from.
