Besides dropping a single a couple of weeks ago and recent news of a new mixtape on the way, Childish Gambino has been rather quite. Today the rapper paid a visit to Hot 97 for a 40 minute interview, where he speaks on his last album Because the Internet. He says the entire album is actually pop album, and that they never wanted to make a rap album

“Rap is done” he explains. “It doesn’t do what it used to do or what it’s supposed to do anymore, the social work, if you will. There is a new era coming through.”
