Hey peeps. I bought a new video camera. It is a really shitty HD camera from Panasonic but it sure beats the video taken by my iPod Touch. So I’ve made the difficult decision to replace all my videos on YouTube with better versions. Better both because the quality of the video is better and also because I will not be fucking up the lyrics.
The first video that will be receiving this upgraded treatment is Freaks and Geeks by Childish Gambino. I already have 2 or 3 versions of this video up on YT (all of which are hidden, now) but I decided to go ahead and redo it anyway since I believe it was the first “rap” video cover I put up online.
Childish Gambino is an awesome rapper. Also known as Donald Glover, whom you may know from Community or such online skits as “Bro Rape” or “Spelling Bee”. Go check out his shit on YT if you haven’t already. I was introduced to this dude by a coworker back in early 2011 and ended up going to his show at Emo’s. The venue sucked but the rapper was awesome. I ended up buying tickets to his show at Fun Fun Fun Fest later that year and he did not disappoint. He also released a new album last year–Camp–which you should definitely check out (my favorite tracks are “Outside” and “Heartbeat”). I’m also going to his show at Stubb’s in April this year, so that’s gonna be awesome!
Anyway, this is a cover of Freaks and Geeks. I finally learned all the words. Do check it out and lemme know what you think. I mean, even if you hate it, I’m not gonna stop wasting space on the Internet posting my videos. So you might as well get your angst off your chest by way of YT comments. I’ve heard it’s very therapeutic.
