Childish Gambino Calls Out Kendrick Lamar, Drake: ‘I’m the Best Rapper’

Childish Gambino

Kendrick Lamar’s “Control” verse is still causing a rift in hip-hop. While freestyling during his “Deep Web Tour” show in Sydney, Australia over the weekend, Childish Gambino proclaimed his greatness and called out his competition including Kendrick Lamar, Drake, and ScHoolboy Q.

“I’m the best rapper, definitely top 5,” declared a shirtless Gambino. “I cut their head off, that’s every rapper living. That’s Kendrick, that’s Drake, that’s ScHoolboy, that’s everyone. I don’t give a f**k. I’ll f**king kill you ni**as.”

Fans took to social media to weigh in with their opinions. “Kendrick Lamar, Drake, and Q would definitely destroy him….i like Gambino but I’m just being honest,” said one YouTube commenter, while another added, “Kendrick is mostly hype yeah the man can rap but when comes to over all music quality Gambino got him beat.”

Watch Gambino unleash a lyrical tirade.

    What he is saying is true, no doubt about it. People are missing out on his great music. Watch him over the next few years, it’s going to be amazing.

    Could not agree more, those other dudes are nice but gambino wrote aaaa bunch of their shit and never vice versa. U want a hook tho then it’s drake but Gambino got the game locked. Mac Miller, gambino, eminem, kanye, and Wiz feel real everything else just pop music.

    If I want to listen to music of substance, I’ll listen to CG. If I wanna listen to ratchet shit or love ballads, I’m going for Drake. But … J. Cole for me over all these queens.
