As if this headline weren’t ridiculous enough, watch the footage of Donald Glover a.k.a. Childish Gambino acting…well, childish. This is all part of a performance meant to hype a crowd in Sydney, Australia and to live precisely in a moment.

Rappers from every section of the globe bolted to their Twitter accounts and their soundproof studio booths to respond to the Compton native’s jabs. Some applauded Kendrick for giving rap a much needed shot in the arm, while others took things a bit more personally and made response records. Read More
