Childish Gambino – Sweatpants (Video)

blame it on Shake April 14, 2014

Fresh off joining Jhene Aiko in front of the sold-out crowd at Coachella, Childish Gambino returns with a music video for “Sweatpants.” Because, the Internet.

UPDATE: Turns out Childish isn’t too pleased with his current deal. Shortly after the video dropped, Gambino took to Twitter to air his issues…

so this sweatpants video and blog was important to us. and it wasnt handled correctly. we were told a lot of things were gonna happen and they were all lies. so im done. someone buy me out of this contract. a lot of people came around after our first week sales. all those people are welcome now. def jam, atlantic, whatever. i dont like record companies. but im not having another project go through this. i said “i know how the internet works tho” my record company laughed on the phone and said “oh really?” dont lie to me. i know im not loud, or outrageous, or a white girl with a big ass, but im fuckin honest. my team is honest. ur not on my team if ur not honest. dont lie to me.

    Visuals didnt really link up with the song. I would have gone ignant for this video and wouldve had fun!

    • Cameron MacKinnon

      thats exactly what gambino is fighting to not succumb to. he’s staying original, not doing something because its the norm.

      • Arnie Kemz

        I understand that but I personally don’t feel this was a perfect match to this song, There are other songs he could have been more serious with and the other videos he already dropped seemed fitting except for this one

  • Anthony Stark

    not the biggest gambino fan but I do like his side of creativity that he brings to hiphop. Not being to plain and specific, but rather giving you something to experience and think about. #2dope #hiphop

    This Community version will always have a special place in my heart.

    Love the deterioration in these videos, 3005 was better executed though.

  • Adi Pre

    Man, video was weird but nice.

  • not a big fan of his music/do like some of his rhymes do, but i love the creativity and these visuals are sick

  • Bambi

    Love this song…I just really wish he would stop trying to pull the art card every time he makes something. He made a short film that made zero sense and people called it amazing and original…I may be overracting but i just don’t get It

    • Anthony Stark

      That was the whole point. wasnt pose to make sense hence why it was called clapping for the wrong reasons. he was poking fun at those people. at least that was my interpretation of it. youtube freaks and geeks, no art card just dope rapping

      I hear you.. But hip-hop is missing this “black sheep” void
