Hot off the heels of Donald Glover's musical moniker Childish Gambino's first Billboard #1 single "This is America", Glover seemingly squanders an opportunity while everyone's paying attention.
STN MTN is a mixtape that contains several firsts for Gambino. It's a concept mixtape where Glover is asleep dreaming he "ran Atlanta", with songs based off mostly early-to-mid 2000's southern hip hop. The mixtape ends with Glover awaking from this dream on the Hawaiian island, Kauai.
By the time of Childish Gambino's debut EP in 2011, pretty much all the elements that make him great are already there - great lyrics and word play; generally soft and emotive, feelsy rap, though sometimes high energy with more stereotypical boastful and clever lyrics... really, it sounds exactly like Camp.
